I am having a reoccurring error on my SBS 2003 Standard Edition.
1. When logging into the server, I get a "WMI encountered a problem and needed to close" dialog box, between 5-14 times.
2. The daily scheduled SBS Backup routine fails.
3. The application event log repeatedly logs errors, event ID 1000, source: Application error
- Faulting application wmiprvse.exe, version 5.2.3790.3959, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 5.2.3790.3959, fault address 0x0001a379.
4. The application event log repeatedly logs errors, event ID 1000, source: Microsoft Exchange Server.
- Faulting application exwmi.dll, version 6.5.7638.1, stamp 430e7361, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 5.2.3790.3959, stamp 45d70ad8, debug? 0, fault address 0x0001a379.
5. The hourly Performance reports fail.
6. My CPU is experiencing 100% spike at regular 5sec intervals causing my system to run very slowly

My server is experiencing almost the same errors as I have viewed on a post by budchawla:
The main difference is that my errors started after installing the R2 update for SBS. I recently installed the SP2 update in an attempt to correct the problems but to no effect. I have managed to remove this error from appearing by deleting the wmiprvse.exe and then doing a restart. This fixes the problem for a day or two but then the error comes right back. During this time I am able to restart my performance reporting and backups but as soon as the error returns I have to reset all reporting settings once again.
Also running Trend Micro Housecall online virus scan will temporarily fix the problem, even though it doesn’t report any errors, malware or viruses. My server has Avast! SBS 2003 installed, but no viruses have been detected.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as this problem is getting very annoying.
