Remember that a corrupt WMI repository will not always be the source of a slow or problematic Windows machine. This tool may also take quite a long time to complete the process.
You will need to login to the affected machine with a local admin account.
Once you are logged in, click Start, then in the search box type: services.msc and hit enter. You then need to locate the Windows Management Instrumentation service and double click it. Do not stop the service as it may crash your Windows, just change the drop down menu to Disabled, click Apply and OK. You then need to copy the fix files locally to your local drive (for this guide I'll be using C:\WMIFIX). The fix files are the batch file that will rebuild your repository and the other is the Windows Hot Fix that you need to run (note that x86 and x64 hot fixes are included in the below download).
