The wmiprvse.exe process is occasionally spiking my CPU usage up to 100%



I've searched online about it, but yet to find any type of solution that has worked. Ran all my virus/spyware programs and come up short.

Anyone have any suggestions on this?

Have you scanned for malware?
Boot into Safe Mode with Networking and download the following tool. Run a full scan

Perform a clean startup to determine whether background programs are interfering with your game or program

Uninstall all unnecessary applications and programs at startup

Are all drivers up to date?
Have you experienced issues with sound, video, games, etc....?


Edit: Reset permissions then reattempt download

I dl'ed the Malwar tool and ran it in safe mode. 4+ hours into it i fell asleep. Woke up to find it completed. It showed 0 files/problems.

The interesting part is with the background programs.
Running my comp normaly i have the problem, obviosuly. When i started the selective start up and disabled all the non-microsoft background programs, the problem seems to have dissapeared.
So i started re-adding programs little by little, trying to find what it was cause the problem. I eventuly got back to having all the programs enabled again. And the problem still was gone.
So i switched back form selective start up (with everything enabled) to the normal start up. And thats when the problem showed itself again.

Is their anything that normal start up loads the selective start up does not even have listed?

Ran the same thing trough the startup programs themselves. Seem to have found the culprit. VerizonServicepoint
Without that running I'm not having any of the issues. :/
Tested every other program on their to. Thats the only one.
