What is running to spawn WMI? I never had that issue with Windows 8. The same machine is now Windows 10 and now issue with it.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
