WMI Error code 0x8004100a



I have tried to install onecare on Vista. I have not had any luck, after
talking to tech suport for onecare they have determined it is a Vista error.
I need to reset the windows management instrumentation (WMI) database and
this is a Vista support issue. I have not had any response from the windows
team. the following is the code that resets the WMI and my error messages.

C:\Users\hanson>wmic /NAMESPACE:\\root path "__namespace.name='wmi'" delete

Code = 0x8004100a
Description = Facility = (null)

C:\Users\hanson>mofcomp %windir%\system32\wbem\wmi.mof

Error code: 0x8004100ACompiler returned error 0x8004100a

I am running in the cmd as administrator.

any ideas on how to reset the WMI data base? Any sugestions are appreciated.

Thanks in advance


I did all of that. As part of Method 3 I was to Run the WMIC removal. That
is what is erroring and why the onecare suport said it was a Vista error and
not suported under onecare.

I still dont know how to run the method three and have it run succesfuly.
