I just received my laptop from HP Repair. They told me they replaced/repaired the fan and system board since I was having excessive fan usage. As I am using the laptop, I am getting excessive CPU usage from the process wmiprvse.exe. I have never had this problem in the past and it is causing my fan to pulse between running loudly and silently. Is this process necessary to run at all times and is there a way to reduce its use? I have Windows 7 running an Intel i7.

Download Process Explorer: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx
Unzip ProcessExplorer.zip, and double click on procexp.exe to run the program.
Click on View > Select Colunms.
In addition to already pre-selected options, make sure, the Command Line is selected, and press OK.
Go File>Save As, and save the report as Procexp.txt.
Attach the file to your next reply.

I don't see anything unusual.
System Idle Process (CPU NOT used) is listed at 99.07%
