The WMI Service failed to load the repository files under the directory %windir%\system32\wbem\repository. This can be caused by a corruption in the repository files, security settings on this directory, lack of disk space, or other system resource issues like lack of memory. If this error happens every time the machine is rebooted then the administrator on this machine may need to stop WMI Service, delete all files and directories under this location, and restarting the WMI Service.
