If so, be sure your backups are current first.
My OS Windows 7 Prof.....all of a sudden my WMI stopped working. I ran SFC chk'd out ok same for "Chkdsk" but the "wmimgmt" control panel revealed this.."failed to connect to local computer because Win32 unable to complete the requested operation because of either a catistrophic media failure or a data structure corruption on the disk". I've searched all over for a solution and the one that seems to be the simplest is to delete and rebuild the "repository file". Could someone confirm this or give my other instructions
