Start (set to automatic) Remote Procedure Call and Windows Management
Instrumentation services.

If those are already started then you may be needing to open the control
panel, click on admin tools, component services. Dig down to DCOM Config
under Component services, find and right click on WMI, select properties,
and then under the security section set it to allow for your user or user
group.
