    Are you using a Universal Theme Patcher? I found out a long time ago, in windows 7, using such a tool for shell themes kills mmc and few other windows services. I don't use these "toys" any more. try sfc/scannow and then reboot.

    I do not use that Theme Patcher thing you are talking about and like I said I have done the sfc /scannow.

    Do you have tweaking.com (use direct download) windows repair? If yes try the repair WMI, repair firewall, and restore important windows services.

    Sorry late on responding wanted to check something out first. Try booting into safe mode and using a snap-in like windows services or event viewer or any of the other administrative tools. If that doesn't work try sfc/scannow in safe mode and rebooting 2 or 3 times. If that doesn't work maybe someone else can help.

    I also found this tutorial on enabling/disabling mmc snap-in from Brink. Read through and check out the links to his other tutorials at the bottom.

    1. To Enable Computer Management MMC Snap-in
    NOTE: This is the default setting of Not Configured.
    A) Click on the Download button below to download the file below.
    Enable_Computer_Management_MMC.reg
    B) Go to step 4.
    4. Save the .reg file to your desktop.

    5. Right click on the downloaded .reg file and click on Merge.

    6. Click on Run, Yes, Yes, and OK when prompted.

    7. If open, close and reopen Computer Management (compmgmt.msc) to see the change.

    8. When done, you can delete the downloaded .reg file if you like.
