Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6200 AGN, Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter and Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter #2 are causing processor spikes

 

I noticed recently that I was having processor spikes. I tried many things to locate the source. I have found that turning off my wireless adapter, the processor would return to normal. I disabled the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter and Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter #2 and the processor spikes were no longer there.

The Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter and Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter #2 are a part of the Intel My Wifi Technology.

So who's is responsible for the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter and Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter #2 causing the processor spikes, Intel ot Microsoft?

Who(m) do you contact to get this corrected?

Anyone else out there with processor spikes that are caused by the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter and Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter #2?

 

I have the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter and Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter #2 disabled in the device manager to stop the processor spikes. Would like to bring this to the attention of all the companies involved so this can be fixed.

 

 

I have a Dell XPS L501x. Dell usually modifies the Intel Drivers, so in most cases, using the Intel Drivers are not a possibility.
