Speccy causes WMI errors and high CPU usage

Recommended Posts

I discovered that running Speccy on my laptop (Windows 10 Pro 64-bit) causes WMI Provider Host process to constantly use 10-20% CPU (significantly raising temperatures and fan noise). 

I see plenty of errors (one every second) in Event Viewer under Applications and Service Logs => Microsoft => Windows => WMI Activity.

Here is the XML dump of the error (they all look the same):

<Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">

    <Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-WMI-Activity" Guid="{1418EF04-B0B4-4623-BF7E-D74AB47BBDAA}" />

ClientProcessId points to Speccy.

- Try if running Tweaking's Windows Repair fixes the problem. And makes sure that you - at least - run repair #5.

ClientProcessId points to Speccy.

 

 

Precisely the same issue. Now using [competition software] instead on my work PC. Definitely not as simple/straightforward as Speccy but locating the relevant temps is easy enough.
