I am attempting to fix a Windows Management Instrumentation WMI problem using the Microsoft WMI tools. But this tool requires that I log on as an "elevated" administrator.

WMI TOOL LINK:
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id...

I have searched through XP but have not found how to become "elevated".

Running the WMI diagnostic tools as administrator is not good enough. Diagnotstics stops after it starts and gives message that tools can only be run by an "elevated administrator.

[I have looked in User Accounts and found nothing about elevated. I heard that pressing SHIFT key when starting WMIDiag is good, but that does not work. I can not find anything on elevated administration in XP, it only exists in Vista and 7 and yet the link I gave says WMIDiag is for XP. I have XP pro 64bit.]

How do I get around this?

You can choose "run as" from the program's properties or you can log in on an account with administrator rights.

here is something that may help you (new links that I found that I did not put in my question and is too technical for me):
