WMI Provider Host process, also known as Windows Management Instrumentation, which you can find in Task Manager and runs at the background of the windows system. It provides information on computers to other applications. This host process is usually seen in a high CPU usage list at the top and normally does not work for many system resources. Sometimes this process works at a good position in windows, which does not require disabling it.
However, the Windows operating system will break down at some point and does not run correctly. So WMI provider host is an important part that can stop temporary for using high CPU processes. It is better that you identify the actual process that causes WMI provider host to use more CPU. Once it found, you can disable, update, or remove that process. Applying our method will not remove WMI from your windows system, but it will stop temporary, and whenever actual windows based software runs, it starts supporting it.
