Why does windows installer module start when windows update is stopped

Windows update is not updating in Windows 7. I have already tried the clear cache fix to no avail. Windows Update shows it running under services in task manager, but when I stop the service the windows installer module service starts immediately.

I suggest you try the following - works 90% of the time for me (and clients).

Go to Windows Updates and set to Never. Shut down, Start up, go back and set to Automatic.

Updates will start to run. Leave running and let run overnight. Updates will likely be done in the morning.
