A possible solution on a now deleted Microsoft KB article:
To resolve this behavior, delete and then recreate the files in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem\Repository folder:
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer , and then click Manage .
Under Services and Applications , click Services , and then stop the Windows Management Instrumentation service.
Delete all of the files that are in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem\Repository folder.
Restart the computer. The files are recreated when the computer restarts.
Also pls see if something at WMI FAQ or at S Page [here search for Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Might Be Corrupted (Unable to view System Information (MSinfo32) ] helps you.
Also see WMI service not working? Use WMI Diagnosis Utility.
