  1. WMI Provider host (WmiPrvSE.exe) uses alot of CPU when playing games.


    What is the use of this program and can I make it use less CPU? I heard people saying that a virus can cause this but thats only when idle.. (it only uses around 2.2% on idle) when I fire up a game it jumps up to around 14-30% usage.

    :)

    WMI Host Provider Regularly Using Up CPU

    Thanks Andre!! This solved my WMI Host problem. My CPU went back again to 2, 3 o 4% when idle and the Temperature of my CPU and Cores was reduced to Normal levels 45 to 52 degrees C. Thanks again.... Aaron...

  5. Actually it should be 0% in idle unless there is some installation or work in progress.

    Update your drivers (you can use DriverEasy to check)

    Then try disabling automatic maintenance and restart.

    Additionally you can try system cleanup. Download WC.bat and run it as admin, it will take about an hour.

    Have you ever wondered why an unknown application kept running in your taskbar called WmiPrvSE! Well, this application acts as an important part of your OS as it provides an important connection between your third parties applications and inbuilt OS but it can be a problem when it uses a high amount of memory and CPU . you can read more here
