Runaway WMIPRVSE.EXE Process


W2K3 machine


SharePoint was running slower than normal. Logged onto the WFE, opened Taskmgr.exe and found that the CPU was pegged. The culprit was the WMIPRVSE process.


After some investigation and restarting services, these are the steps that worked:

  • Kill the runaway process WMIPRVSE.EXE
  • Open Services.msc
  • Restart ScriptLogic CBM Service
  • Restart Window Management Instrumentation (which also restarted Citrx tools for Virtual Machines Service)

Because this server is due for retirement (after migration to SharePoint 2010), no further investigation of why the problem occurred was warranted.
