I have a problem to turn on my firewall, XP system.
With the error WMI may be corrupt.
I have read the article Q319101 & in the resolution No5, I do not have the
information on Windows Management Instrumentation, so I can not 'stop' it.
I have tried to reload XP & all was fine, except this problem.
I am also having problems trying to load SP2, but that is another issue.
Please advise how I can get WMI working.

Thanks Wes for the info, but I do have Windows Management Instrumentation
listed there, so I can not turn it off. I have re-installed (up-dated) XP
but have the same problem.
How can I activate this Windows Management Instrumentation feature.

Regards

Marty

To stop winmgmt...
Start | Run | Type: cmd | OK |
When a command prompt pops up |
Type: winmgmt /kill
Hit Enter

winmgmt.exe = Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
Runs under SVCHOST.EXE.
C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs

C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\winmgmt.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\wbem\winmgmt.exe

To see if WMI is running, if you have XP Pro...

Start | Run | Type: cmd | OK |
When a command prompt pops up |
Type: tasklist /svc
Hit Enter
Under one of the svchost.exe you should see winmgmt

To see if WMI is running, works with Home and Pro...
Start | Run | Type: cmd | OK |
When a command prompt pops up |
Type: net start
Hit Enter

Do you see Windows Management Instrumentation listed??

[[Windows Management Instrumentation - WinMgmt could not initialize the core
parts
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.]]
