A few months ago, someone posted a questino about high wmiprvse.exe high CPU use .
RED66 offered this advice:
Found an easy fix to this problem. Restart the “Windows management Instrumentation” Service. The dependent services will restart in the proper order and you’ll see the CPU go way down to normal levels.
It works great. THANK YOU!!!!!
My question–will I have to do this every time the CPU creeps up, or is there a way to make this a permanent fix?
