Disk manager won't open in Windows 7

  cavityQED 22:31 PM 19 Jun 13

Every time I try to open disk management I get an internal error that states I need to restart the disk management snap-in. I've already made sure that Virtual Disk and Volume Shadow Copy are running but I still can't open the program. However, after I get the error and click ok (several times, since the error pops up about 5 times), Virtual Disk stops running according to the task manager.

I've seen others with similar problems were told that the .dll file may be corrupted. I've tried to find a replacement file but to no avail.

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Your help is greatly appreciated!

Have you tried the file scanner. If I remember correctly, in Win 7, start, in search box type cmd, in the list right click CMD and select 'run as administrator'. Type or copy and paste sfc /scannow and see if it finds any problems.

Then try 'start', search box, and type diskmgmt.msc.
