I have a problem. In W2k (SP2, SRP1) the WinMgmt.exe keeps crashing whenever i try to run anything. Somtimes is crashes after the login process. Although it crashes, the program that i have chosen, keeps running. But it is annoying because after a while it crashes again. (...and again. etc)

I went to device manager, and observed that the IPSEC service has also crashed. By the way, the IPSEC service should be set to manual or automatic? (Since I am not in a w2k domain i think it sould be in manual) I tried with both settings but the WinMgmt.exe keeps crashing.

Any suggestions?

how long did since you did a reformat?
if its more than 3 months, and you try lotsa shareware, then it could be that your programs are conflicting.. Time for a reformat IMO..

Open up the Services utility & check that;
Windows Management Instrumentation
&
Windows Management Instrumentation Driver Extensions
are both set to Automatic.
Have you got Service Pack 2 installed as well?

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks for the response guys.

No offence blackwar, but we cannot "format" every time a problem occures. I must confess though that it crossed my mind. :spaced
I want to exhaust all the possibilities first.

Yes, sp2 is installed.

By the way, when is the sp3 going to be released (beta or official) ?

I tried different combinations of the services state. Finally it worked with WMI to manual and the WMI extension to automatic. I must test it extensively though.

In XP, I never had that kind of problem. The above services are both set to automatic.

yeah but i meant that if you install many shareware (like i do) and then uninstall them, they leave remainder registry entries and some dll's which can conflict with your system and cause crashes like that.. Even if you clean the stuff out with reg cleaners, there will still be some clutter left, and most probably cause crashes like this.. I know its boring and sufficating to format, but when u gotta do it, u gotta do it :)
