WMI Host Provider high CPU when running Garmin Express

This was also reported in the thread about GE using 20% CPU, but I thought the WMI-specific issue should be highlighted in its own thread. The problem was also reported in the Forerunner 945 forum. I had been trying to figure this out for a while until I saw that post. Sure enough, quitting out of GE made the high WMI CPU usage stop.

GE 6.19.3.0

  • Same issue!  Not sure when it started - though I did update GE on 12/19.  My son complained of performance lag in a game today which got me looking around.  I don't think it's related to windows version - I'm still running 1809 (Yikes!  I thought I had taken the spring update this year...).  Development - please take a look at this issue!  GE is disabled for now...
