The legit WmiPrvSE.exe or the Windows Management Instrumentation Provider Service process is located in the Windows/System32 folder, but malware can disguise themselves using this name. So check the Properties of the file and scan it with your antivirus.
If you see it using high CPU, Run services.msc and restart the "Windows Management Instrumentation" Service and see if that helps you.
