Event ID 1035 Windows Installer reconfigured the product

I noticed that there were tons of events showing up in the Application logs for Event ID 1035.  What does this mean, after a little bit of research I found that the WMI filter string was triggering Windows Installer to self repair about every 5 minutes on some servers and on others it was once an hour.

The following WMI string to find what programs were installed on a system was triggering the Windows Installer to self repair

SELECT * from Win32_Product WHERE Name like "%Adobe Acrobat%" OR Name like "%Adobe Reader%"

 

The correct WMI filter string is:

SELECT * from Win32_InstalledWin32Program WHERE Name like "%Adobe Acrobat%" OR Name like "%Adobe Reader%"

 

Hopefully this helps somebody out!
