wmiprvse.exe running high CPU
Recently upgraded my older HP TC1100 tablet to Service Pack 3 and am noticing the CPU is being hammered by the wmiprvse.exe process, taking it up to 100%.

I'm unsure if there's a particular service I should be tweaking, or what to try next.

The following is the most recent HJThis
