Many Windows Installer Service in Event Log

January 10, 2012 at 15:29:34
Specs: Windows Server 2003
The System Event Log on my Windows Server 2003 SP2 x64 has many entries of the following three events repeated throughout the day:

The Windows Installer service was successfully sent a start control.

The Windows Installer service entered the running state.

The Windows Installer service entered the stopped state.

This occurs 15+ times per day at random intervals. The server is a stable machine with no software being added or removed. It is a basic, firewalled, web server.

Thanks!

Close the Server Manager to stop the continuous logging of the WMI service.

Thank you for the reply. I don't have any server manager panels up right now so I don't see how it is running, is "smss.exe" the correct process for the Server Manager?

Will that affect my web server in any way?
