    Been having problems with my router which appear to have been caused by uninstalling Norton. However although I can now configure my router it wont connect to the internet.

    Checking the relevant service dependencies gives a WMI Critical Error. Further investigation in the event viewer shows the following;

    WinMgmt could not initialize the core parts. This could be due to a badly installed version of WinMgmt, WinMgmt repository upgrade failure, insufficient disk space or insufficient memory.

    Can this be reinstalled easily ??

    Maybe repairing your Windows using the CD might do the trick.

    Go to Start/Run/CMD and then run each of these hitting enter after each:

    winmgmt /clearadap
    winmgmt /kill
    winmgmt /unregserver
    winmgmt /regserver
    winmgmt /resyncperf

    This may or may not repair the repository but will re-install wmi into the registry.
