WMI Error 1065 processing group policy

The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows could not evaluate the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) filter for the Group Policy object cn={C60D9FEB-D1D6-40B5-8A53-1541AE44170B},cn=policies,cn=system,DC=mydomain. This could be caused by RSOP being disabled  or Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service being disabled, stopped, or other WMI errors. Make sure the WMI service is started and the startup type is set to automatic. New Group Policy objects or settings will not process until this event has been resolved.

The WMI filters on certain group policy objects are preventing them from being applied.


1)  Log onto Windows 7 with an administrator account, click Start, type services.msc in the Start Search box and press Enter.

2)  In the right pane of the Service console, locate and right-click Windows Management Instrumentation, and then select Stop to stop the service.

3)  Start Windows Explorer, and then locate the %SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem\Repository folder.

4)  Backup and delete all the files in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem\Repository folder.

5)  Restart the computer.

The files that were deleted will be re-created when the computer restarts.  Note: The Windows Management Instrumentation service starts automatically when you restart the computer.
