Hello. First post here.
Has we can see on reddit:
Before update from version 2.0.34 to 2.0.35 from Windows APP store it was ok.
Now the problem persists with 2.0.35 and 2.0.36.
The 2.0.36 version launch the WMI Provider Host process and it keeps running even after exit the MSI Center.
The solution that I found until now was to downgrade to version 2.0.33.
MSI B550M PRO-DASH (BIOS 7C95v3F). Chipset Drivers from MSI motherboard page. Windows 10 (22H2) up to date.
The video trying to explain the problem.
Does anyone notice this?
 
The whole collection of useless apps that MSI combines here under an absolutely disabled interface should be scrapped. I have absolutely no idea what they want with it.
Even this stupid division into individual apps makes no sense. Stupid system information that doesn't go beyond what Windows offers me. Nobody wants to run all these full-screen apps on the side. This game mode and other things are probably more of a placebo than something that makes sense. Setting the fan, cool, you used to do that once and then the values in the bios were permanently adopted without having to run stupid software permanently. Live Update ... great cinema if the provider only updates the drivers once a year, if at all, and then they come even more often via Windows Update. LAN drivers from '23 and still the 10 drivers are offered despite Windows 11, although Realtek offers extra Windows 11 drivers.
Memory and USB Boost where nothing is done except to set the energy profile to maximum performance, that's just child's play software!
The coolest thing for me is when you actually have “professional software” under your label like the MSI Afterburner, which is developed by a third party, and then you look directly at the garbage from MSI.

Make another Click-Bios! Make a nice interface over the AMD Ryzen Master and slap the Afterburner under an interface, that's what I expect from an MSI Center. You can steal the fan control from FanControl, it's open source and can certainly be marketed exclusively for a few bucks.
Asus Memtweakit ... what have you got?Nothing!
Or simply boot from Windows into UEFI with one click.
The professional goes via “C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe /r /fw /f /t 0”
or install the tiny tool from Asrock which does nothing other than create a shortcut to the command.
Everyone else offers meaningful tools, even with a clean UI, MSI offers .... now we better leave it or I'll burst my collar!
 
MSI is aware of the problem and working on a Fix
Tested version 2.0.37.0 (clean install)

High memory usage by CC_Engine_x64.exe solved! :biggthumbsup:


High CPU usage by WMI Provider Host and CC_Engine_x64.exe not solved. :biggthumbsdown:

  • *WMI CPU usage peak at 5% (monitored for 2 hours) Average usage 2.8%
  • *CC_Engine_x64.exe peak at 8% (monitored for 2 hours) Average usage 3.1%

I totally agree.
I only use two modules, FROZR Ai Cooling and Mystic Light.
The FROZR helps keep my PC quiet when I'm working and in performance mode when I'm playing. Mystic Light loses its settings after each module update and I have to redo it again, it's disappointing. In my opinion, the other modules are useless.
My legs shake when I update the bios through MSI Center.

MSi Center update it's the most crazy things to do! When MSI solve current problems, I will never update again!

I found MSI Center, to check my location every second (got the small indicator from Windows blinking). Could imagine whatever is doing here may cause the permanent CPU-load.
Must have been one of the latest versions - as I not really used it I simply uninstalled it, so can't check the version any more.
 
do you have other MSI application installed other than MSI Center?
I have the MSI branded CPU-Z installed.
But the issue appeared with installation of MSI Center and was solved after uninstalling it... so pretty sure it was MSI Center or one of the components it installed (I think I selected Gaming and Content as profiles)
