Hi there guys, I wonder if you can help me... I'm getting a bit frustrated. A couple days ago I booted my Win8 laptop out of sleep and noticed a ridiculously high CPU usage of 60% when it was running idle. Turns out "WMI Provider" is constantly running at 40-70% - never had this problem before and it's starting to get irritating. I've done a little bit of research and apparently some viruses can masquerade as WMI Provider Host? Currently doing a virus check, but I've never had this issue before and I wonder if you guys can help? Cheers!
