 What is Wmiprvse.exe?

Your computer is always running low on resources. Resources are the finite amount of power and capability that your computer has. We’re constantly battling with poorly designed applications, increased hardware costs, and our own human limitations to make sure that our computers run as efficiently as possible. That means we may need to increase the number of cores or threads in a processor, increase memory size, add more storage space, or rearrange how we use system resources when programs are open. The wmiprvse.exe process is responsible for all of this.

What is Wmiprvse.exe?

Knowing what wmiprvse.exe does can help you determine whether it’s safe to run that application or not. Restarting an application, either through the Windows Task Manager or by using the command line, will cause the wmiprvse.exe process to restart with its new configuration settings. If you are concerned that a process could be trying to use system resources in an inefficient manner, shutting down wmiprvse.exe will save some power and possibly prevent resource issues for other applications in your system as well.

If you suspect that the wmiprvse.exe is malfunctioning, it’s probably a safe bet that you should restart it too. This is a little ironic, as it’s counter-intuitive to assume that restarting a program could cause problems for other programs. Restarting applications means thinking about them as collections of components (files, registry keys, startup parameters) and their interrelationships. You can see where this could lead – if one component malfunctions and cannot be restarted then the entire process may fail. However, sometimes there are steps you can take to isolate the problem and stop your computer from failing in such a way.

How to diagnose wmiprvse.exe problems.

You can use the process of elimination to better understand what is causing your computer to slow down or become unstable. Simply disable parts of your computer, one by one, until you isolate the problem completely. You’ll need a fine tooth comb and time on your hands for this process – but if you’re having a system problem (and we all do occasionally) it’s worth it to do some detective work. Each of these steps alone may lead to a solution for your computer issues – or they may just give you more information about what is causing the problems in the first place:

Disable hardware acceleration in Internet Explorer .

. Close applications one-by-one.

Disable any unnecessary services .

. Disable any unnecessary software .

. Run performance tests and hardware diagnostics . (This will help you identify which components are causing the slowdown or instability.)

Quick Tip: The different ways to start wmiprvse.exe.

It’s important to note that the wmiprvse.exe application can be launched in two different ways: through its executable or through a system registry key, which means that it can be affected differently by conditions on your computer – and sometimes in unpredictable ways. We recommend that you always close any applications and/or reboot before trying to update your system components:

MSCONFIG – To launch wmiprvse.exe through the registry key, go to Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Administrative Tools > Services (you may need to enable your Control Panel view first).

Conclusion: What is Wmiprvse.exe?

wmiprvse.exe, like most processes that run in your computer, is there for a reason – even if you don’t know what it is yet. We recommend that you don’t disable wmiprvse.exe without knowing exactly what it does (and whether or not disabling it will cause problems). If you’re running a program and the wmiprvse.exe process doesn’t close after restarting the program, then it may be malfunctioning and need to be restarted through MSCONFIG instead.
