This is caused by a corrupt WMI repository.

You will also see the following in the event logs:

"WMI ADAP was unable to process the performance libraries: 0x80041001" and/or "WMI ADAP failed to connect to namespace \\.\root\cimv2 with the following error: 0x8004100a"

if this has happened, you will need to run the WMI Diagnosis utility for Windows XP to find out what may be wrong with the repository. You can download it here:

If necessary, you may need to rebuild the WMI repository although this should only be done as a last resort.

Click Start, Run and type the following command:

rundll32 wbemupgd, UpgradeRepository

This command is used to detect and repair a corrupted WMI Repository. The results are stored in the setup.log (%windir%\system32\wbem\logs\setup.log) file.
