Microsoft has acknowledged that after you install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) using integrated media, you may see the flowing WMI error is logged in the application log after every reboot.
Here’re the details of the WMI error:
Log Name – Application
Source – WMI
EventID – 10
Level – Error
User – N/A
OpCode – Info
Task Cat – None
Keywords – Classic
Details – Event filter with query “SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA “Win32_Processor” AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99″ could not be reactivated in namespace “//./root/CIMV2” because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.
According to the software giant, the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) error was introduced in the creation process of the Windows 7 SP1 DVD/ISO. There was an issue in the creation process that caused a WMI registration to remain in the DVD/ISO.
“Since the registration is designed to work only during the DVD/ISO creation process, it fails to run on a live system and causes these events. These events are not indicative of any issue in the system and can be safely ignored. If however you want to prevent these events from getting generated and want to remove this specific WMI registration manually, please follow the steps mentioned in this article for running the workaround script,” stated Microsoft in KB2545227.
To resolve the issue, run a script to stop the Event ID 10 messages. To run the script follow these steps
