I have overheating issues with my Surface Pro 4 and this site recommends turning off Windows Installer Module and Windows Installer Module Worker to cool down a Surface Pro 3.  However, I don't see those items in my task manager.  The original article is here.


How can I cool down my Surface Pro 4?

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

The Surface Pro has a wide range of processors, each of which outputs different amounts of heat. Which processor is yours? Is it an i7?

Yes, it is an I7

How are you using your Surface Pro? On a desk, on a lap, etc? Are you leaving it in a hot car or anything like that?

What kind of programs are you running on it? I assume something which uses lots of processing power for extended periods of time based on the fact you bought an i7.

Have you been keeping the firmware updated?

I bought a Windows Surface Go for portability reasons. So far, so good.  Time will tell.
