  • 1.  WmiPrvSE.exe High CPU Utilization

    Posted May 09, 2014 02:41 AM

    Dear All,

    Around 10 machines in our network are getting shut down automatically once the machine is resumed from the hiberate state.

    Event ID: 1074 

    The CPU utilization goes very high for this process. 

    I would like know whether this behavior is because of any malwares ? If yes, what is the solution.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    WmiPrvSE.exe is not a virus or a malware. Windows® Management Instrumentation (WMI) is a component of the Microsoft Windows operating system that provides management information and control in an enterprise environment.
