Well Apparently i am missing some windows management instrumentation files cus it will not let me look at my system info. when i open sys info it tells me that i was wondering if there is any way to reinstall WMI into the computer and Registry. I already tried SFC /SCANNOW in the command prompt and that was totally worthless. DO NOT WANT TO REINSTALL WINDOWS AGAIN! :mad:

Well you may want to try going to C:/windows/inf (a hidden file) and right click/install 'msinfo32.inf'.

You haven't perhaps turned off/diasabled the 2 WMI services?

Maybe you will find this info to be of some use:

Note in WinXP this service is also used by System restore and long delays will be experienced if this service is not running.

To repair/reinstall the WMI execute the following commands (Note it will reset the ICS and ICF configuration):

1. winmgmt /clearadap
2. winmgmt /kill
3. winmgmt /unregserver
4. winmgmt /regserver
5. winmgmt /resyncperf
6. net stop winmgmt
7. del %windir%\system32\Wbem\Repository\*.* /s
8. net start winmgmt
9. %windir%\system32\wbem\wbemtest.exe
