VISTA 64bit / mmc error

Hi

I got a message up today saying new updates to download etc..

Pressed it box appears then quickly goes again..

Also services.mmc does not work
Windoes update
Plus the option in control panel system does not come up..

System restore does not work..

All brings up the error below...

I get this
error

MMC cant open file c:\windows\system32\devmgmnt.msc..

I looked in google for this error one forum said i need to do a clean install another down load a bat file that fix it etc..

bat file did not work and god I dont want to do a clean install of vista ....

I cant system restore either I have a vista dvd so ok there..

But the microsoft site is a waste of time they dont speak in away so you understand.

Cant there be a strep by step or small program out there that cant fix it..

Dial a fix for XP fixed this error when I had it in XP..

But vista I dont know of a version for it..

Does any one have any ideas please thank you?
