Fix: WMI repository reset failed

Fixing WMI issues can be quite a pain as we all know :)
There is another WMI issue which I have encountered recently on Windows 7 and fixed which I thought
should be shared with all.

Usually for WMI issues in Windows 7, the last resort to resolve the issue would be to reset the
repository using winmgmt /resetrepository

But what if even this last resort fails you?
The error that I have gotten attempting to fix this client is as below

C:\Users\vincent.goh.adm>Winmgmt /resetrepository
WMI repository reset failed
Error code:     0x8007041B
Facility:       Win32
Description:    A stop control has been sent to a service that other running ser
vices are dependent on.

To resolve this, you can follow the below procedure

1)      Adding Network service to Local Administrator
2)    Navigate to the key below and confirm if the Value is "Both". If its is not, go ahead to change it to Both
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{F3130CDB-AA52-4C3A-AB32-85FFC23AF9C1}\InprocServer32\ThreadingModel]

Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{F3130CDB-AA52-4C3A-AB32-85FFC23AF9C1}\InprocServer32
Value Name: ThreadingModel
Value Type: REG_SZ
Correct Value Data: Both
 3)      Then restart the WMI services in services.msc.

Performance issue accessing WebDav Folders on Windows 7

Some users may encounter a performance issue when Sharepoint resources is being access via WebDav folders under Windows 7.
The same file will have a better performance if it is accessed directly from the Sharepoint Site Via Internet Explorer.
It has been mentioned in some forums in the Internet that the below will solve the issue
The resolution is pretty basic but well no one will really care if it works J
Open Internet Explorer
Open Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings
Disable 'Automatically detect settings'
Open your WebDAV or Sharepoint volume and look at it fly.
