SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • On a Windows Server 2008-based or Windows Vista SP1-based computer, you execute a Windows Management Instrumentation Service (WMI) query and begin enumerating through the result set.
  • Before you finish enumerating through all objects in the result set, you stop the enumerating action and dispose of the ManagementObjectCollection WMI.
In this scenario, the WMI service may enter into a deadlock situation and stops working. Any applications calling WMI functions may also stop working because of this issue.
