When I attempt to "Manage" my computer, I get the error message:
MMC cannot open the file C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\COMPMGMT.MSC
This may be because the file does not exist, is not an MMC console, or was
created by a later version of MMC. This may also be because you do not have
sufficient access rights to the file.
I get the same erro when I attempt to open the Event Viewer, Services, etc.
(basically anything in Administrative Tools).
So, I clicked START-->RUN and keyed in MMC and pressed ENTER.
I added the necessary snap-ins and attempted to save the MMC console as
DOCS&SETTINGS\ALLUSERS\STARTMENU\PROGRAMS\ADMINISTRATIVE-TOOLS and I get an
error message stating:
I am logged into the system as Local Administrator with full security
privileges to the entire machine.
I found Knowledge Base article 326574, and have verified that "C:\windows;
c:\windows\system32; c:\windows\system32\wbem" are all contained in my PATH.
What could the problem be? Does it appear that I need to reinstall the O/S?
