    I am attempting to fix a Windows WMI problem using the Microsoft WMI tools. But this tool requires that I log on as an "elevated" administrator.

    WMI TOOL LINK:
    at /www microsoft com at /en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7684[/url]


    I have searched through XP but have not found how to become "elevated".

    Running the WMI diagnostic tools as administrator is not good enough. Diagnotstics stops after it starts and gives message that tools can only be run by an "elevated administrator.

    How do I get around this?
