the audiodg service accesses the CAT files when the service is started the first time.

The more updates / MUIs you have installed, the longer it takes.

So both cryptsvc and audiodg verify all the cat files?

the wait time is only required if you do servicing operations to the OS like removing updates which are superseded (replaced by newer versions).

So when you uninstall an application, you have to wait for trustedinstaller to clean up?  I had no idea.  I uninstall things and then reboot all the time.

this is the Scavenging. Trustedinstaller removes the files if the PC is idle for a while.

No this is not covered in Marks book.

I think I've got it.  You have to wait for the mysterious 'TrustedInstaller.exe' to finish, in about 5 hours.  (Is that covered in Mark's book?)  It recovers almost 15 gigs of space!

I see.  There's a scheduled task called 'lpremove' that runs after the computer starts and becomes idle for 10 minutes.  (I think this is wrong and it removes language mui packs from Windows Home.)  It stops if the computers stops being idle.  I haven't gotten a handle yet on how to run it manually and see when it's done.  Strange mechanism.

Also audiodg.exe seems to be polling the catroot for some reason.

are the fiels still there are running Win7 a while? The servicing stack uninstalls the packages but deletes the files later when the PC is idle.

I've tried something like

pksetup /u ar-sa bg-bg cs-cz ...

but it leaves all the files in the catroot behind.
