Found some stuff out for you . The wmiprvse.exe is a windows file found in C:\windows\System32 folder.However this is sometimes also the alias for the W32/Sonebot-B virus , it hides in the registry and my link will tell you where it is , how to locate it , and more importantly how to remove it.Heres the link click here
