winmgmt access denied...help!
so I had the bogus security center warnings and tried the

Net stop winmgmt /y
Rename %windir%\system32\wbem\repository %windir%\system32\wbem
\repository.old

fix, but got a winmgmt access denied warning after typing the first line. I
am an admin on the computer i use. Any way for me to gain access to winmgmt
so I can get rid of the stupid security center warnings?

Vista Premium 32bit.

Thanks,

Eric

You didn't quite follow the instructions. You have an administrative
account but you are not *the* built-in Administrator. As the
instructions say, run cmd elevated and then you won't have any problems.


1. Click Start
2. Type: cmd
3. Right-click cmd when it appears under Programs
4. Click Run As Administrator

Changes to the built-in administrator account in Vista:
