    Corrupt WMI (XP Pro SP2)

    I am trying to get a Peer to Peer Network that was running ok running again.
    Normal file services are fine, but I cannot get the shared Internet connection to run.
    There is no problem on the client pc, but the one with the internet connection will not share it.
    It is NOT the firewall, because the issue exists without any running.
    Also the internet is working on the main PC.
    If I try to run the setup wizard again, it fails with an error.
    If I try to look at the advanced properties of the main pc I get the following message. (See Attached file)

    The implications are that WMI is corrupt and needs to be repaired.
    I cannot find any way to do this, and I don't want to try and go to a restorepoint.

    Any suggestions.

    According to <!mskb=823775>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 823775<!/mskb> , you have two choices - either use System Restore or run a Repair Installation of XP. Why do you not want to use a restore point?

    The closest restore point would remove other functionality that has been added.
    This problem has been around for a while but not fixed.

    I was hoping that there might be some hidden repair tools for the Windows Management system repository.

    These are the only two choices that I am aware of.
