WMI Provider Host jumps to 20%+ CPU Usage

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

Last night and today I noticed "WMI Provider Host" using 20-25% CPU usage and I was trying to track down what could be causing it. After surfing thru the event logs and testing closing other apps, I closed Malwarebytes 3 and the CPU usage dropped down to 7-9%. I can recreate the problem by relaunching Malwarebytes and WMI Provider Host will immediately start scaling back up to 20% CPU usage.

very strange... I've been using malwarebytes for several years now on many systems and this is the first time I noticed this. I am on a new system now with a fresh install of Windows 10 Professional.

Please help, Thanks,

- James
