    Hi Kermit, I remember you :p :)

    Try getting the Windows CD, going to add/remove accesories, remove them all, then intall them again. See if that works.

    Have you used a registry cleaner recently? Restore it if possible.

    This issue is discussed in earlier posts here and at other forums.
    They all ended up with the remarks that the problem could be caused by a registrycleaner.
    Others called it a "glitsch" from MS. MSInfo works during some time after a clean install. Then suddenly it won't anymore for no special reason.

    Couldn't solve it myself either. Monitored for a long time registry backups from a cleaner, but it did not give me any clues.

    Ok well I went through the services and there was not many I did touch and have put them back to the default settings , but no go It still wont work :mad:

    I guess its like what was said seems that this happens for no real reason and I guess I will have to live with it. I am gonna keep trying to find out what this is about ....but seems I am not alone


    thanks guys !! :)
