    WMI error, please help!

    Hello all, I have vista 64 bit SP1. Here are my system specs.

    -EVGA nVidia nForce 790i Ultra SLI MB LGA 775
    -Intel LGA 775 Wolfdale 3.0 GHz E8400 CPU 65W 45nm dual core
    -MASSCOOL 8WA741 92mm Ball CPU heatsink/fan
    -Dual EVGA 9800GTX(G92) 512 MB 256-bit GDDR3 SLI'd
    -4GB (1x1x1x1) mushkin 240 pin DDR3 1333 (PC 10666)
    -Silverstone DA800 Decathalon series 800W PSU ATX12v2.2 EPS12v
    -Raptor X 10,000rpm WD1500AHFD 150GB SATA 1.5Gb/s HDD
    -Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm HDD 400GB
    -Sony NEC Optiarc IDE ODD combo drive
    -HP LightScribe SATA ODD drive
    -Samsung internal floppy drive
    -Vista Ultimate x64
    -Sunbeam Transformer full ATX case

    Im getting a error 10 in the even log viewer. At any random time, whether at idle, start up, playing a game, or what ever, the system completely freezes and cannot do anything at all, nothing responds or works and a hard shut down is required. This is quite annoying. I bought vista ultimate with SP1 pre-loaded on the disc. Here is what the event log shows me

    Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.

    And the XML

    - <Event xmlns="">
    - <System>
    <Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-WMI" Guid="{1edeee53-0afe-4609-b846-d8c0b2075b1f}" EventSourceName="WinMgmt" />
    <EventID Qualifiers="49152">10</EventID>
    <TimeCreated SystemTime="2008-06-20T03:29:43.000Z" />
    <Correlation />
    <Execution ProcessID="0" ThreadID="0" />
    <Security />
    - <EventData>
    <Data>SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99</Data>

    Im honestly baffled. This is so weird, all drivers and BIOS and everything is up tp date on the rig and it does this. I have no idea what to do, in wmimgmt.msc I made sure my user account had correct permissions in the CIMV2 root, but they were already all there. Please help!

    edit: I pass mem tests and CHKDSKS as well, so Im ok there.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Bump, windows has been reinstalled and the problem is still here!

    Thanks for your help guys, I fixed it by deleting the C:\Windows\System32\Wbem\Repository files in safe mode. I tried running that script in the microsoft article but it didnt work. I tried calling microsoft, and they said since I bought the OEM version of windows (what else is there to buy on newegg??) that advanced support would be $59.99 even for the email/chat/phone which is absolutely ridiculous.

    I found this info on msoft technet:

    Error is permissions related, and seems a common error since W2K. W2K and XP
    have hotfixes. The *workaround* in the article for Vista is to disable the
    event 10 notification!
    From what I glean, wmi is enterprise related in terms of what it does. I
    have had this error since day 1 (vista pre-installed on dell 1420) and
    everything is seemingly working fine. I am not concerned about it since I
    have home PC, not part of enterprise; no remote pc management stuff. How it
    affects you may be different (duh).

    If the link given by TK does not help, here a link to MS Help & Support
    exclusively for SP1 issues. It has e-mail support, chat support and
    phone support. It's all free. Don't let the wordings of the link stop
    you. It's the right link.

    'Please Verify your Location'

    I get the error you mentioned in the Event Log at every boot up, but it
    doesn't cause my PC to crash/lock up.

    I was getting the same error, When trying to boot protocols like IMAP or NNTP, I tried to resolve it by solution mentioned here -
