I am having an issue with a 2003 windows server virtual machine.
the cpu is always 100% and I took at look at it and I have seen with the process explorer the process that is causing this issue is the wmiprvse.exe (see attachment)
I killed the process but it didn't work. After a while the cpu resources are consumed at 100%.
I have applied this article:
Break WMI Service out into its own svchost process
Open command prompt with elevated privileges
Run following command: sc config winmgmt type= own
Restart Wmi service
Run sc query winmgmt to ensure status of service now reflects “own” indicating running in its own svchost process
but no success.
Please if anybody knows something about this issue and have some suggestion it will be appreciate it.
