Specs: Windows XP, AMD Athlon64

Message: When I click on System Information, the LH side of the screen shows the usual items, but the RH side of the screen -- instead of listing all the specs of your computer -- says "Can't Collect Information" "Cannot access the Windows Management Instrumentation Software. Windows Management files may be moved or missing." Can anyone help me hunt for and restore these missing files?

Thank you, Tufenuf. I did what that link suggested, but got "Could not start the Windows Management Instrumentation on Local Computer." "Error 126. The specified module could not be found." "WBEM error features not available." "Upgrade WMI to a newer build."

I tried it a few more times but received the same information. Somehow I need to get this upgrade, but don't know where. It's no big deal, but it annoys me that I can't pull out all the specs of my computer, and the chap who built it for me has moved away. I may have to contact him via email and see if he has any ideas.

Your response was very much appreciated.
