    Missing Windows Management Instrumentation (XP Home)

    When in the System Info box, I am unable to access any information. I hope the pic below says it all, but if not [img]/forums/images/smilies/sad.gif[/img]- "Cannot access the Windows Management Instrumentation Software. Windows Management files may be moved or missing." Also, a Network Diagnostics scan comes up with, "WMI error".
    View/System History, in the sysinfo box shows lots of info, but nothing for 'Current System Information'

    Heeellllppp!!

    Cannot access the Windows Management Instrumentation software. Windows Management files may be moved or missing.

    This error will occur if the WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) service is NOT started. The service will NOT start if:

    - You unchecked it on the Services tab of Msconfig.exe.
    - It is Disabled.
    - A dependent service is NOT started.
    - the service is damaged.

    To resolve this problem, the following services must be started:

    Event Log

    Windows Management Instrumentation

    Remote Procedure Call (RPC)

    Go to START,RUN and type MSCONFIG Push Enter and you will see the box thats in the picture.Click on Sevices Tab and put a check in the boxes like shown below in pictures.

    Thanks cowboydawg

    The services you highlighted were, funnily enough, not enabled. All boxes ticked and I am no longer gnashing teeth :-) I think I must have been following the printed word from a magazine when I was looking for a quicker shutdown on my computer, and seem to remember that by disabling the event log, the computer shutdown in 15 seconds as opposed to 4 minutes.

    Thanks
