WMI service terminating unexpectedly


  • I've been getting WMI service errors for almost 2 weeks now, very frequently spamming my Event viewer System log (twice a minute). There are two errors I keep getting:

    Event ID: 7024
    The WMI service terminated with the following service-specific error:
    The system cannot find the path specified.

    Event ID: 7031
    The WMI service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 60000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

    I've tried running sfc /scannow and dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth which fixed some files but the issue still persists, even after restarting. I'm on newest Windows 10 N Pro 64bit with media feature pack installed.

    This issue has been reported previously but I haven't found a solution to it yet and didn't want to necro old threads.

    As you can see, it spams my event log quite a lot:
