  1. Does WMI Provider Host do anything?


    So, this thing called WMI Provider Host has been bugging me ever since I knew what took up 25% of my CPU for absolutely no reason.

    I've been wanting to uninstall this program ever since I knew that, but I don't know what it does to my computer, because it could be a program that will not let me boot to my computer if I uninstall it.

    If you know anything about this program, let me know.

    :)
