JSI Tip 7673. Another alternate method of recovering from 'The Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) information might be corrupted' when you view network properties in Windows XP.

In tips 7078 and 7080, I proposed methods of recovering from The Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) information might be corrupted when you view network properties in Windows XP.

A simpler alternative, suggested by a reader, is:

1. Open a CMD.exe prompt.

2. Type the following, pressing Enter after each line:

net stop winmgmt
del /q %SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem\Repository\FS\INDEX.BTR
del /q %SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem\Repository\FS\OBJECTS.DATA

3. Shutdown and restart Windows XP.

4. Reconfigure ICS and ICF settings because step 2 causes them to be reset to factory defaults.
