This process consumes from 65% to 99% of my CPU, all the time, but I cannot figure out why. It is in the right directory and I have good malware protection. I wish I knew what is wrong.

This is a part of Windows 7's Operating System and needs to be left running for proper functioning. WMI stands for Windows® Management Instrumentation and this is the running Service for programs that need it. It typically runs in multiple Svchost.exe events to protect your PC from crashing of a single instance fails. IGNORE AND REFERAL TO THIS BEING A VIRUS.

The Wimprvse software is essential for security and stability of the operating system. The operating system requires this program to run smoothly. It is however important to see where the wimprse.exe is situated and what folder it is running from. A Windows operating system that is functioning normally often requires various accounts to run wmiprvse.exe. It is normal to see wmiprvse.exe simultaneously running in the LocalService, NetworkService, and the LocalSystem. Wmiprvse.exe application is always situated in the systems32 folder of the Windows operating system. The filename and path is C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem. If you happen to observe that wmiprvse.exe running from a different origin, meaning outside the systems32 folder, then there is a huge possibility that it is a Trojan, or a Virus.  More information

ok as long as it resides in the folder C:\Windows\System32\Wbem\. An easy way to see the location is to highlight it in the Glary Utilities Process Manager and hit the "Show Details" button. The folder is listed under the Process Information section.
