To keep track of everything, the developers used WMI Provider Host (WmiPrvSE) a Windows host management function.
WMI Provider Host is Now Fixed (WmiPrvSE.exe)
To resolve the WMI Provider Host high CPU utilisation on Windows issue, we must run a few primary commands in the command window and restart our computer.
1. The Windows Management Instrumentation Service
The first step is to simultaneously press Win+ R on the keyboard. There will be a run dialogue box where we must put services. msc. Following that, we must look for Windows Management Instrumentation Service.
To complete this process, simply select any of the services and type W into the search field to locate services that begin with the letter W. After that, all we have to do is scan for the one we’re looking for. The service must then be restarted. We will fix the problem of high CPU consumption using this method.
2. Other Associated Services
After completing the preceding steps, we only need to go to the start menu and right-click it to bring up a menu, from which we must select the command prompt (admin) option.
The next step is to type net stop iphlpsvc, net stop wscsvc, net stop Winmgmt, net start Winmgmt, net start wscsvc, and net start iphlpsvc into the command prompt window.
We must also keep in mind that after inputting each instruction, we must press the enter key. After that, we simply need to restart the computer to see if the problem has been resolved.
3. Perform a Clean Boot
WMI exists for a reason. The excessive CPU usage of Provide Host can be an app. During this procedure, we will conduct a clean boot and isolate the application that is causing the CPU to be overworked. There are a few procedures to follow in order to complete a Clean Boot.
Step 1: First, we must log in to the computer as an administrator. Then, by pressing Win+ R at the same moment, we need to open the run window. We must type the command “msconfig” into the run window. Then you must press the enter key.
Step 2: Next, select the services option, where we will discover the “Hide all Microsoft Services” option, which must be unchecked. Then, in the right corner, we’ll discover the deactivate all option, which we must pick, followed by the ok option.
Step 3: From the starting tab, go to the task management window. We need to go into the task manager and select the startup option. We simply need to disable the applications that are now running.
The computer must then be recommended. We just completed a clean boot by restarting the computer. Now all we have to do is make sure the problem is detached or not. If everything is in order, the application is to blame for the high CPU utilisation.
4. Using Event Viewer
First, we must locate the event viewer option, which may be found in the start menu. This is for users of Windows 7 and prior versions. If we’re using Windows 8 or 10, we’ll need to press Win+ X at the same time to find the event viewer.
We need to click View in the toolbar at the top of the Event Viewer window and just enable the option to see analysis and debug logs. Then we must proceed to the application and services logs, then to Microsoft, then to Windows, and last to the WMI-activity.
By double-clicking on WMI-activity, we can access a contextual menu. To open the operational logs of WMI Provider Host, pick operational from the contextual menu. We need to check the operational logs to see if there are any issues.
If any faults are discovered, we only need to click on them to reveal their specs at the bottom of the screen. Then, in the selected error, simply search for the term Client Process Id. We only need to memorise the number in this case.
After that, we must go to the task management window. We need to type task mgr and then ok into the run dialogue box. After that, we must enter the services page and look for the same process ID as the number we noted in the Client Process Id field. We’ll need to disable it after we’ve discovered it.
After that, you must go to the control panel and then to the programmes and features. After that, we’ll need to uninstall the offending application. The WMI Provider Host will utilise the bare minimum of CPU after uninstalling.
