    Win2008 server running in VMWare Workstation 6 with latest VMWare
    additions installed. Win2008 runs flawlessly in this configuration save
    for the wmiprvse.exe taking up 8-15% of the CPU.

    Turning off the Windows Management Instrumentation fixes the problem but
    is not ideal. Turning the WMI back on seems to "fix" the problem
    however the services "IP Helper" and "Windows Resource Manager" aren't
    automatically started when the WMI service is turned back on.

    Turning the IP Helper service back on has no ill effects on the CPU.

    But turning the Windows Resource Manager on brings the WMIPrvSe.EXE back
    to the top of the CPU's most used processes.

    Would leaving the WRM off adversely affect the system?
