  1. Hello, I was wondering if someone could take a look at my hijack this output and tell me why I keep on getting the error:
    WinMgmt.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log has been created. Thanks in advance for the help.

    Can you be a little more specific about when this error occurs??

    If you go into the event viewer, do you see any failure events for the Application or System sections that appear relevant?? (Control Panel, Administrative Tools if you don't already know..)

    btw- Welcome to Techspot!! :wave:

    Thanks Goalie
    okay, I got this message after I had found that my IE browser was getting hijacked. I got rid of that and ever since then I get that system message every 15-45 seconds. The event viewer log has a very general entry refering to this problem:
    The Windows Management Instrumentation service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 98 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 60000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

    And for some reason the computer is acting the same....slow boot times, apps slow to pull....I think I didn't get all of that nasty hijacker but I am not sure. I am about to reinstall windows and say forget it. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks =D

    In Computer Management/Services, you can set both WMIservices to start Manual.
    See if that helps.

    Thaks realblackstuff, that seemed to clear the error message. Do you know what those services did? Do I need them?

    They provide System Management Information. Other than that I don't know much about them. Just found somewhere that, when set to start Manual, you have less system-errors.
    If Windows needs a (manual) service, it will start it, otherwise it will leave you in peace.
