Problem with High CPU due to Acronis Managed Machine Service and WmiPrvSE.EXE
Running Windows 7 64-bit and installed Acronis Backup and Recovery (latest build as of May 1 too) and have been experiencing occasional CPU often at 100% for minutes at a time. Sometimes the system would eventually recover and other times not and be forced to reboot. The high CPU was the WmiPrvSE.EXE determined by using Process Explorer (free download). I then determined that this service has about 4 dependent services, once of which is the Acronis Managed Machine Service and disabling this service has resolved the high CPU problem.
Even when running normally, WmiPrvSE.EXE will spike to 100% CPU about every 1 minute just like clock-work. As soon as I disable the Acronis Managed Machine Service, the spiking goes away as well as the long periods of high CPU. So as you can imagine, I am having to keep this service disabled. But that pretty much makes B&R useless.
Is anyone else having this problem? I only found one other confirmed instance of the same problem here:
To may surprise I did not see any other threads that even mention this service. Any ideas? If you are having high CPU issues and have B&R installed, please disable the service to see if that helps. Any advice would be appreciated. Cannot use B&R as it currently stands and have not yet sent this issue to support.
