    Windows 10 Missing Files


    Windows could not start the Windows Management Instrumentation service on Local Computer.
    Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified.

    When I try to access System Information, I get:

    Can't Collect Information
    Cannot access the Windows Management Instrumentation software. Windows Management files may be moved or missing. The message is the same across every Sub-Category.

    Will MediaCreationTool create System Information files? What can I do?

    Thanks in advance.

    Open a Elevated Command Prompt.

    Run the following command in sequence.

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    SFC /scannow


    Or put this in a DISMandSFC.bat file and run it:

    @echo off
    date /t & time /t
    echo Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    echo ...
    date /t & time /t
    echo Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    echo ...
    date /t & time /t
    echo SFC /scannow
    SFC /scannow
    date /t & time /t


    If any errors run them again.

    Thanks Ztruker. I'm about to take the laptop back to Micro Center since they didn't completely install the complete registry. If that doesn't take care of the problems, I'll use your solutions. I don't have the HomeGroup and probably more functions are missing.
