Windows 7 SP1 doing unexpected language pack operations, filling up CBS log

Hi,

I have an Asus Windows 7 SP1 Laptop.

I have noticed that the CBS log grows by about 20Gb a week, quickly filling the hard drive.

On closer inspection the CBS persist file timestamps match with log entires such as the one at the bottom of this post.

The log contains a lot of similar entries, with many different language pack codes.

The computer has no need of langauge packs other than UK English, so I have no idea what is triggering these events. Additionally, lpksetup only shows UK English as installed!

Did you install the Chinese language pack or are you trying to remove it?

I swear I participated in a thread with the exact same problem not too long ago, but I can't find it.

Anyway, the CBS.log file is part of the Windows Resource Protection.

Running System File checker may help:

The problem may be with Windows Update. You can run the System Update Readiness Tool, or CheckSUR

BTW, the "CBS" in CBS.log stands for Component Based Servicing

No luck with any tests or procedures! In the end I reinstalled it!
