"Win32_Processor: WMI: Access denied" and "Win32_OperatingSystem: WMI: Access denied"

Hello Folks,

I was trying to install SMS 2003 Advanced client on one of our laptops (Dell
Inspiron 4000 512Mb RAM) when I came across some WMI problems.
When I connect to the machine via Computer Management it says that it fails
to initialise all WMI classes:

The text reads:

Failed to initialise all required WMI classes:

Win32_Processor: WMI: Access denied
Win32_WMISetting: Successful
Security information: Successful
Win32_OperatingSystem: WMI: Access denied

I have tried stopping the WMI service, deleting the repository in WBEM and
restarting to no avail.

Can anyone help me fix this WMI?

Many thanks in advance,

Mark Jennings

Hi

Try (using e.g. Start/Run, or a command prompt):

regsvr32 %windir%\system32\atl.dll
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\netshell.dll
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\hnetcfg.dll
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\netcfgx.dll
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\netman.dll

If that doesn't fix it, a lot of good information in this one about
repairing WMI:
