If the post from VOG does not assist in sorting out your problem - please post back with details of whether you have Front Page installed on your p/c. If so advise what version you have.

hi VoG
sorry the link didnt help as i dont know how to make sure that eventlog/wmi/rpc have started correctly. the rpc event was a message i received when i had the msblaster worm. i have removed this and installed the ms fix.
ps dth ihave frontpage that came with office xp

After a lot of hair pulling (what's left of it)and help from my next-door neighbour - have managed to restore my System Information on Windows XP Upgrade(Home Edition) by accessing "Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 319101. Hope that is of help.
