In my new Lap top (Inspiron 1720 with Vista Home premium), the message "WMI provider host has stopped working" appears systematically after booting (and this happens since I got the new computer). If I reboot it may appear again or not, it looks as a random behaviour. After the message, the computer looks working normally (I am using only office and internet), but it is slower to access my home network.
Which is the function of WMI and is it possible to avoid this stop working?
I have exactly the same problem on my XPS1330 with Windows Vista Home Premium. I have submitted a request for getting the hotfix from the link provided below. I am not sure whether that particular hotfix is applicable to my laptop. Previously, I did not succeed with the following hotfix :
When I tried my luck with the above hotfix, I got a message saying that it was not applicable for my pc.
I would appreciate any help in identifying the right hotfix for my laptop - XPS 1330 with win vista.
The message that I get at the final stage of startup is :
WMI provider host has stopped functioning and must abort (this is a translation from swedish).
I give below the full details from the events viewer :

Extra information om problemet
I hope that these details suffice to identify the problem.
Thanks for the suggestion, but I repeat that the computer came from Dell with Norton installed (with 18 months of included subscription) and not McAfee. And Norton is still running and I didn' change anything
Shall I follow equivalent steps, provided that something equivalent exists with Norton?
