WmiPrvSE.exe consuming 25% of CPU on Win7

On my HP laptop the WMI Provider Host was consuming 25% of my CPU.  This just started one day.  The offending process ended up being the HP Wireless Assistant Service, which is not needed as Win7 provides WiFi services. To turn it off:

  1. On your desktop right-click on Computer and select Manage
  2. Select Services and Applications and double click Services
  3. Right click on the HP Wireless Assistant Service and select Properties
  4. Change the Startup Type to Manual
