FIX- Rebuild the WMI On Windows Servers

Needs to follow the below Steps to resolve the WMI Issues.

1. Change startup type to Window Management Instrumentation (WMI) Service to disabled

3.  Rename the repository folder: C:\WINDOWS\system32\wbem\Repository to Repository.old
4.  Open a CMD Prompt with elevated privileges
5.  CD windows\system32\wbem
6.  for /f %s in (‘dir /b /s *.dll’) do regsvr32 /s %s
7.  Set the WMI Service type back to Automatic and start WMI Service
8.  cd /d c:\ ((go to the root of the c drive, this is important))
9.  for /f %s in (‘dir /s /b *.mof *.mfl’) do mofcomp %s
10.  Reboot the server
