What is the WMI Provider Host? Is it Safe?

Yes. The WMI Provider Host process is a legitimate system process that comes installed on your Windows 10 computer. It’s required to run in order to make your PC functional. It's even running when you start your PC in Safe Mode. It is technically possible to disable the “Windows Management Instrumentation service” on your computer. However, this will break many different things on your PC. It’s an important part of the Windows operating system and should be left alone. However, If this service is stopped, most Windows-based software will not function properly”. So don’t disable this service! If you have a problem with it, you need to identify the process on your computer that’s causing the WMI Provider Host to use so much CPU and update, remove, or disable that process instead.
