(SOLVED) Trustedinstaller.exe
« on: February 03, 2009, 10:04:30 AM »
avast reported Trustedinstaller.exe so i deleted it. With a name like 'trusted installer' the false-positive possibility didn't even cross my mind.

 I need to know where I can download it :( . I have searched everywhere! Can any of you maybe upload it as an attachment? I have a Vista home premium 32 bit system. Please my updates stopped working. I have too much school work in this computer to reinstall the OS.

The file is small and its location is C:\Windows\servicing\TrustedInstaller.exe

Well, deletion isn't really a good first option (you have none left), 'first do no harm' don't delete, send virus to the chest and investigate.

A search of the forums for trusterinstaller.exe will retuned much information as I believe this has been detected (incorrectly) before.

A file recovery tool might be able to recover the deleted file, but avast is likely to alert, so pause the standard shield when you try to recover it.
http://www.snapfiles.com/freeware/system/fwdatarecovery.HTML - The Recuva tool is well regarded.

Have you got SP1 for Vista, I don't know if that might replace the old trustedinstaller file ?

Oh no no this is too good to be true ;D! I've had this topic in the Vista forums for the past two months!!

Do you have any ideas how awesome you guys are? Coz if you don't here it is: you guys are

AWESOME

Thank you very much. Placing the file in its folder was a bit tricky, but now my updates work again!! 44 important updates and a ton of recommended ones just waiting there, lying down like a seductive mistress, just waiting to be installed!

DavidR, you`r absolutely right. It was a stupid thing to delete it without researching, but you know whats even more stupid: calling an important system file `trusted installer`


Marc and Caz, what can I say you guys.. Thank you very much. You just rocked my socks.

I made the same mistake.  I am running Windows Vista Ultimate 64 Bit Edition SP2 and your file saved the day.  I am certainly grateful. - ODB

I know this is solved. For future reference (not that I'm implying you need it) there is a much easier  solution to resolve this type of issue. You could've used Vista's built in system restore feature to go back a few days/weeks to restore your system settings in order to regain the original trustedinstaller.exe file. This would have taken all of 10 minutes and perhaps required a reboot.

HI, I have the same problem, the Trustedinstaller.exe was deleted form the C:\windows\Servicing\  directory
I have windows Vista Premium x64 installed.
I was not able to copy it back to the protected  C:\windows\Servicing\  directory

This is a question to "TazOrama"  you said:
"Placing the file in its folder was a bit tricky, but now my updates work again!! "

How did you do that ?

TIA
Frank
