Symptoms

When you perform one of the following operations on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7, the operation may take a long time to complete:
  • Start the computer
  • Log on to Windows
For example, the computer takes three or more minutes to start.

In the application eventlog, you may see these events:

Log Name: Application
Source: Microsoft-Windows-WMI
Event ID: 65
Task Category: None
Level: Warning
Keywords: Classic
Description:
Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Service is starting to restore the WMI repository

Log Name: Application
Source: Microsoft-Windows-WMI
Event ID: 43
Task Category: None
Level: Warning
Keywords: Classic
Description:
Windows Management Instrumentation ADAP failed to connect to namespace \\.\root\cimv2 with the following error 0x80080008

Log Name: Application
Source: Microsoft-Windows-WMI
Event ID: 5614
Task Category: None
Level: Information
Keywords: Classic
Description:
During the service startup, the Windows Management Instrumentation service was unable to locate the repository files. A new repository will be created based on the auto-recovery mechanism.

Cause

This issue occurs because the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) component unnecessarily performs a full validation of the WMI repository.

Note A full validation of the WMI repository is a time-consuming operation.
