Hi Guys.
I received the following message when I tried to access 'System Information' "Cannot acess the Windows management Instrumentation Software-Windows Management files may be moved or missing"! The Management screen shows up together with the sub headings, but when I click the box required the message shows up.
Can anyone help? As far as I'm aware I haven't moved anything,More importantly how do I rectify the problem?
Many thanks .Hecate.

4. Press Services to expand it.

5. Scroll to Windows Management Instrumentation in the right-hand pane and right-click it.

6. Press Stop.

7. Use Windows Explorer to delete all the files in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem\Repository folder.

8. Shutdown and restart your computer. The Windows Management Instrumentation service will start and the files will be re-created.

Hi Recap.
Many thanks for your reply to my problem. I can get as far as line 6 in your letter, but I'm not sure how to progress from there.
You say to use windows explorer to delete various files in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem\Repository folder.
Can you please explain exactly how this is done?Thanks again.
Hecate.
