WMIPRVSE process is overloading the CPU
Posted on 2006-04-25
The WMIPRVSE process, currently running under NETWORK SERVICE, is using the majority of my CPU on two workstations here. This problem started occuring last night after .NET 1.1 SP1 was installed on both PCs.
I've checked the PCs for viruses, but this isn't the cause.
Although please bear in mind that .NET 2.0 was already installed when .NET 1.1 SP1 was installed. An option in WSUS was accidently set to INSTALL on the .NET 1.1 SP1 option, which caused the auto update to occur.
Would uninstalling .NET Framework 1.1 fix the problem? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
