Unknown System Error 0x80041014

Recommended Posts

Running the latest Speccy on a friend's old XP SP3 box gives the above error for every line item in Speccy, both on the summary and detail pages.

 

Nothing in Event Logs when Speccy runs, so no idea what this could be.

 

Any advice welcome.

 

Cheers,

 

Nige

Make sure WMI service is running and that the user has administrative privilages on the computer (these are usually the cause of this error)

@Nwpsys:

 

You're not the only one with this problem.

http://www.tweaking....php?topic=638.0

 

 

Try a program called "Windows Repair" (www.tweaking.com) and make sure you - at least - tick "Repair WMI". The program can solve A LOT OF (not all) window problems. I don't know whether this program ("Windows Repair") is able to restart the WMI service. "Window Repair" is a first step to a more stable computer system. Perhaps the Piriform moderators can create a FAQ section/thread here on the forum ? Where an answer can be provided for a number of recurring errors in Speccy ? And their solutions ?

Yeah I have had this problem a few times too... I am not 100% sure what is messing with my WMI since I was never able to pin it down.

 

anyway copying this into the comand prompt fixes the problem 99% of the time

 

cd /d %SystemRoot%\system32\wbem

for %i in (*.dll) do RegSvr32 -s %i

for %i in (*.exe) do %i /RegServer

 

I am not sure why it doesn't work if saved as a batchfile but hopefully this will help some people

Follow the instructions in post #4. The program "Windows Repair" executes the same commands.

KapnJackSparrow's three commands worked great for me, just cut and paste into a command window. Some programs ran or gave messages for the third command, just closed or ignored. ran up speccy all fine.

If you want to make it a batch file then you need to use %% in place of a single %.
