    My fan has been running on and off over the past couple of days even when I am not doing anything major. I check to see what processes are hogging the resources and one called
    "Windows Modules Installer Worked" But anyway this seems to run for 30-45 minutes randomly.

    If I disable this can I just do updates manually? Or is there a better solution?

    For the exact same reason I always disable this service + the Windows updates one.

    It is not risky, but you will have to start it manually as soon as you want to update or make a disk cleanup.

    Give it a try for a few days, and if something goes wrong, enable it and set it to manually.

    I looked around and do not see how to disable it. I went to program and features but it is not listed there. I right clicked on it in task manager and Stop was the only option. I did not see disable.

    Type "services.msc" in the Run command prompt + enter.
