You said wmiserve.exe. Did you mean: wmiprvse..exe? Google did not find any process/service called wmiserve.exe
Those 3 processes, imapi.exe, alg.exe and wmipserve.exe are normal Windows processes. Google will tell you more. Imapi.exe is connected with CD burning. Wmiprvse.exe may be a virus if it is located elsewhere than C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem
But nothing seems out of place there otherwise. Personally I would not have any messengers load on startup. Whilst they try to connect to the internet during the boot process I have found that they slow the startup times themselves.
Why not go for a faster startup without those, then just connect them when Windows is fully loaded?
hi i have got winxp professional, p-4 3 ghz, 1 gb ram and 160 gb hdd.
well my problem is when my windows xp boots up...everything starts up except that the yahoo and msn messengers as well as the broadband connection dialin link doesnt works till like a minute or so after windows has got booted...it seems like the windows waits for something to load for about a minute and then after a minute the hard drive shows some activity and yahoo,msn and the broadband link comes up and i can only dial the link then...this 1 minute wait for the connection to be connected is really annoying me...from the task manager i c that 2 services imapi.exe,alg.exe and wmiserve.exe starts up after the freezing time of the windows and then net connection gets connected...if u want any more details i will let you know....help will be kindly appreciated in solving this problem...jess
