    I am running SBS2003 and wmiprvse.exe, svchost arev eating 100% cpu. It
    seems to be totally at random. When I open Process Explorer I see that under
    the wmiprvse.exe process an instance of mssbsssr.exe is running. How can I
    troubleshot this to find a fix?

  2. This sounds like an Old Issue? (Last year)
    Are you up to date on everything?

    After you install SMS 2003 SP3, the Wmiprvse.exe process may generate high
    CPU usage on client computers during hardware-inventory operations

    High CPU utilization generated by the wmiprvse.exe process
