Speccy messing with WMI Provider Host


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, when i open speccy, the WMI provider Host cpu usage jump up to 10-15%
so i check the event visor -> microsoft -> windows -> WMI-activity -> operations 
and there is A LOT of error where the processID is the same as speccy(as you can see in the image)  so that confirm my theory.

The thing that i want to know is: how i fix that.
PD: if i open MSI afterburner the WMI process use like 0.7% of CPU, soooo that confirm more my theory

Speccy uses wmi to query most (all?) of its data from, so I'd say it's supposed to do that.

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

What version do you have now?

I agree with Negril, WMI usage increasing would be expected and normal.

the amount of WMI errors however is concerning and needs further investagation.

Backup now & backup often.
It's your digital life - protect it with a backup.
Three things are certain; Birth, Death and loss of data. You control the last.
