wmiprvse.exe constantly creating tzres.dll

When opening Process Monitor I noticed that wmiprvse.exe was constantly creating tzres.dll over and over again. I am on a new ThinkPad T430 with Win 7 Home Premium. Lenovo wouldn't help me because apparently the base warranty doesn't even have software tech support!!!! I have tried killing some processes that I think may be causing this problem but to no avail. Any ideas? Thanks!
