WMI Issue

I am looking into the source of the slowness of the server. Something on VMA3 (Virtual Server on Hyper V) is hammering WMI:

Operation = Start IWbemServices::ExecQuery - select * from Win32_Process;
ClientMachine = Local; User = .\SYSTEM; ClientProcessId = 0; NamespaceName =
\\.\root\CIMV2

i.e. constantly enumerating the running processes. Unfortunately it's not
logging the PID of the source, so the only way I can see to trace it is by
attaching a debugger, which is beyond me. I tried selectively stopping
programs/services (including LogMeIn, which is back on now) to see if I
could isolate the source but wasn't successful. Any ideas?
