wmiprvse.exe attemting to access infected resouces


Hi,


I recently got this event message.


The application wmiprvse.exe accesses a web resouce http://sv.symcd.com/MFEwTzBNMEswSTAJBgUrDgMCGgUABBQe6LNDJdqx%2BJOp7hVgTeaGFJ%2FCQgQUIjtT8HkzI699g%2B8uk8zKt4YecmYCEBLwJ34PIzs5%2BUGbBujN41I%3D 


that has been detected as infected. The Web resource has been successfully blocked and you PC is now safe


My question is why a windows management instrumentation process be trying to access a potentially infected website, and should I do anything further.


Thanks,


J
