I would be interested to see what ProcessMonitor shows. Have you done any modifications to the msc (xml) file?

No modifications made to anything really. Its kind of pathetic how unmodified my OS is considering.

Ill definitely upload a PM log but that might be a little big. What kind of filtering should I apply in PM?

Run this, tell me if it opens properly. I might not know the cause, but I may know a solution.

%SystemRoot%\system32\CompMgmtLauncher.exe

If that file doesn't work, we just need to switch around a few registry settings to change the command that occurs when your Right-Click > Manage. Someone had the same problem last week and we changed the run code to this.

mmc %SystemRoot%\system32\compmgmt.msc

Yup. Nothing. even when run from an elevated command prompt.

OK that fixed it. I was almost hoping that didn't work. Hang on I have to take care of something:
