WMI Provider Virus

Hi, i think there is a virus in my computer, i may be wrong but better safe than sorry.
I disabled WMIProvider, but its still running in Task Manager. And it also is not associated with any group like Local, Windows. And its using occasional 5-10% System Resources.

Please, help?
