  1. WMI Issue


    In the WMI Control Properties it says,

    "Failed to connect to <local computer> because 'Interface: Class not registered"

    I came across this problem when I was trying install Waves Central. The installer told me that there may be a problem with a "corrupted or missing repository" or "not having sufficient privileges to access WMI services". This lead me to finding about about the problem above.

    I'm honestly clueless on how to fix this issue because I am not technically proficient and every article I find regarding this issue seems to be from 10 years ago or more, and those articles don't have any solutions.

    I hope I was able to come across as clear as possible as I'm just a music producer trying to install Waves Central, I am honestly clueless on these topics. I appreciate any help that I can get.

    Does anybody know how to solve this issue?



    Thank you in advance WMI Issue :)

  2. WMI Provider Host - Windows 10

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand your concern as you the WMI provider host use high CPU of the PC. Usually, WMI Host Provider doesn’t use much usage of the CPU. It will use the CPU when any software or script that asks for some information via WMI. High usage of the
    CPU is just the sign that another software is seeking for some information or requesting any data via WMI.



    However, the high usage of the CPU for a long time for WMI is an indication that something is wrong because WMI Provider Host doesn’t occupy the resources of the CPU for a long time.



    In this scenario, we would suggest you to perform these methods and check if the issue is fixed.



    Method 1: Restart the WMI Provider Host Service

    1. Press Windows key + R to launch the
      Run command, then type Services.msc and press the
      Ok.
    2. Scroll down all the services and find
      Windows Management Instrumentation and then Right click on it and select
      Properties.
    3. Set the startup type to Automatic and then restart the service.


    Method 2: Restart other WMI provider Host related Services

    1. Click on Start Menu and type CMD, right click on
      CMD icon and select Run as administrator.
    2. In the Command Prompt Window type the following command and press
      Enter after each command.
    • net stop iphlpsvc
    • net stop wscsvc
    • net stop Winmgmt
    • net start Winmgmt
    • net start wscsvc
    • net start iphlpsvc
    3. Restart your computer and check if the WMI provider Host having high CPU usage



    Method 3: Uninstall the Components and Drivers that causes the Problem

    1. Press Windows + XKey and select
      Event Viewer.
    2. Click on the View Button that appears on the top of the Menu and then click on
      Show Analytic and Debug Logs.
    3. On the left pane, navigate to this path Applications and Service Logs > Microsoft > Windows > WMI Activity > Operational log. Now Mark or Note down the Item that listed as an
      Error
    4. Now press the Windows Logo Key +
      X
      simultaneously, then select Task Manager.
    5. Now, click on the Service tab and Find the processes with the Matching IDs as seen in
      Event Viewer in the column of PID when You Locate or Find these Process then
      Uninstall or Disable those service.
    6. Restart the PC and check


    You may also refer this article and check if that helps to fix the issue:
    High CPU usage by WMIPRVSE.EXE process at regular intervals in Windows

    the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
