Symptoms

When you try to open a Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) namespace on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7, you receive an error message that resembles the following:

0x80041002 (WBEM_E_NOT_FOUND)

The following event is also recorded in the system event log:

Cause

This issue occurs because the WMI repository is corrupted.

The WMI service does not correctly handle an item deletion operation for the WMI repository. This behavior causes the index tree of the WMI repository to become corrupted. Therefore, you experience the error that is described in "Symptoms" section when you try to open a namespace.

Note Not all WMI repository corruption is caused by this issue.

Resolution

After you apply this hotfix, you have to reset the repository to recover from the issue.
