WMIPRVSE.EXE processor high

Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I have a user is trying to open outlook but a process called WMIPRVSE.EXE I killed the process but it comes back. I have run a virus scan and it did not grab anyhting significant. I plan to run the scan in safe mode and also run Hijackthis and see what it finds but thought someone there may have seen this before and know exactly what it was. I read where it can possibly be a virus and it sure acts like one, but with all the gurus there, maybe you all have seen this before. It will run the processor at around 80 to 90%.
