I had a problem with my Microsoft SQL Server 2008, importing data and generating scripts, so I decided to uninstall it. When I tried to remove it, I got an error from the check screen. The WMI service is corrupted, so I need a way to reset the WMI service.

Platform: Windows 7 64bit

I did try winmgmt /resetrepository

to no effect.

If its a file level corruption you could probably try the sfc /scannow command - this will check and replace any system files that are damaged.

I had the same problem and using Repair WMI from Tweaking.com fixed it.
