Default WMI Provider Host stopped working and was closed

Id be interested to hear what McAfee has said regarding this issue, if
anything. Im running a Dell Inspiron 1525 w/ Vista Home Premium and
McAfee Security Suite. About a month ago my error messages (several
different ones) began popping up.

1.) McAfee VirusMap has stopped working and closed. This happens at
random times and the small pop up window appears minimized on the task
2.) Synchronization Application stopped working and was closed. This
appears when I open McAfee and click on update.
3.) Most recently I have received an additional message regarding an
Instrumentational Program stopping and closing.

I have contacted McAfee twice regarding this issue and spent several
excrusiating hours trying to get a pair of idiots to understand the
problem. Both times the issue was not resolved and I was told to contact

The pop up windows arent the problem, I can deal with them by simply
closing them. But Id like some reassurance from somewhere that my
security programs are running properly and working as they should.

Default WMI Provider Host stopped working and was closed

O/S Vista home premium

I am receiving the following error message which pops up shortly after bootup.
“WMI Provider Host stopped working and was closed”
I uninstalled the Dell Support Centre, believing it might be causing the
problem since it appeared after I had installed that program. Initially,
that seemed to cure the problem but within a few days it was back again, I
have not, however, reinstalled the Dell Support Centre.
In the Control Panel selecting “Problem Reports and Solutions” and clicking
on “Check for new Solutions” at present 412 problems instances are listed but
no solutions are found. Under “information about other problems 18 no. are
listed eg. “Problem caused by McAfee spamkiller” but I don’t know and can’t
find out what that problem is. Under “view problem history” I see that WMI
Provider Host” stopped working on 7Nov.07 and 146 times since that date.
Details of “Problem Signature” are given as follows, but I can’t make much
sense of that information and am unable to determine from it what program is
causing the WMI Provider Host fault.

Any advice and/or answers to the following queries would be most welcome.

1 How do I determine what is causing the WMI Provider Host to close and how
can I correct the problem?.

2 Are there any serious consequences or risks, security or otherwise, if I
should ignore the issue and continue working with the WMI Provider Host
