Update Agent makes WMI Host Provider Consume whole CPU

The battle net update agent seems to be having an issue with the WMI Provider Host which is causing the WMI Provider to slowly consume all available CPU time over the course of a few hours. Killing the process and its child processes fixes the issue and leads me to believe this is the cause of my issue, but I am unable to run Battle Net games without said processes. Is there a known fix for this issue?
