I ran a Microsoft HotFix, which didn't help. I was then sent a single module from Tweaking.com Windows Repair All-In-One, and that fixed some things according to the module, but trustedinstaller.exe was shown to be missing. I download the full Windows Repair All-In-One, but have not run it yet. I also downloaded Fix WU from the Windows Club, but have not run that either.
I'm wondering if the installation of Hitman 2 might have deleted trustedinstaller.exe, and considering doing a system restore from five weeks ago, prior to the installation.
Has anyone run Fix Wu? Will it restore trustedinstaller?

I had run across the article you linked to, and some others, but they all seem to have an inordinate number of complicated steps, and in many cases no good conclusion.
So I used administrative tools and checked processes. Trustedinstaller was there, but the service had been stopped for some unknown reason. The reason the repair module could not find it was not because it was not there, but because the process had been stopped. Similarly, a file search was unable to find it.
So I set it from manual to automatic, hit Start, Apply, and OK, crossed my fingers, and restarted the computer.
Lo and behold, the 89 megabytes of downloads popped up quickly, downloaded, and installed.
I'm still going to analyze what could have stopped the service. I suspect that it was the installation of the game Hitman 2, as WU started acting wonky around that time, before stopping altogether weeks later. Nevertheless., I'm glad that I'm up and running again.
