Windows Management Instrumentation error

By vlad_slick ·
When I start "Windows Management Instrumentation" the following message appears:
"Access denied to Windows Management Instrumentation server on this computer. Have an administrator change your access permissions."
What should I do?

Suggestions and Checkpoints:

Go to Start/Run and type in: services.msc. Scroll down to: Windows Management Instrumentation and make sure the Service is set to Automatic.

Go to Start/Run/CMD and type in: net stop winmgmt. Then delete the %windir&\system32\wbem\repository directory. Once done go back to Start/Run/CMD and type in: net start winmgmt

If that doesn't help, try this:

Open a Command Prompt and type "winmgmt /clearadap" to clear prior WMI/resyncperf information from the registry.
Then type "winmgmt /resyncperf" to register the system performance libraries with WMI again.

WinMgmt could not initialize the core parts

This will re-install wmi into the registry: Go to Start/Run and type in: CMD, then Winmgmt/? for information. Then run each of these hitting enter after each:

winmgmt /clearadap
winmgmt /kill
winmgmt /unregserver
winmgmt /regserver
winmgmt /resyncperf

It could be a permissions issue, try this go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Defragmenter try to run this application. If it reply's you need to have administrative rights to run this program, you are signed on as a user with user privilege and are restricted from running or tweaking certian settings. This can include WMI.

Craig, I tried everything you said (twice) but nothing works and I couldn't delete the repository folder in windows so I deleted it in the Recovery Console but it still didn't work.
And I am the admin...what else could I do?
