which gives the current Active Connections and their PID number. Then look in the Windows Task Manager for the same PID number to see what process is using it. For me, I have an PID entry of an Active Connection, currently on the XPpro box, of 1404. This matches the PID in the windows task manager of jqs.exe <java quick starter>. The thing is that you have to check netstat while the Connection is open. Some process don't stay active.
But I don't show a current process in the Windows Task Manager named wbem or whatever. Perhaps it is because this user isn't admin, or the process has closed already.
I don't know anything about WMI so I looked here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Management_Instrumentation
This tells me that WMI is an architecture woven into windows. So I wouldn't try to dismantle it, but would try to find the offending application.
One thing that creating a new user account does is it baselines the initial processes listed in Windows Task Manager, the new user gets the original baseline (defaults) of processes. Not all later installed processes get carried over into it. You might try creating a new admin user and compare the loaded processes of the windows task manager with that of your current user. And see if the bad behavior is absent in the new user. My process lists are all different among the 4 user accts. here, yet I am the only operator of this machine.
I like Frank's idea too. I spend more time on this debian linux box than on the XP box nowadays.
