Last Updated: 1/30/10

If Windows Vista won't detect your antivirus software then try these commands:

Method 1:
winmgmt /verifyrepository

If WMI repository is reported to be inconcistent, run this command:
winmgmt /salvagerepository

then restart

Method 2 (force repository rebuild):
net stop winmgmt /y
cd %windir%\system32\wbem\
ren repository repository.old

Then restart

these command should work in Windows 7 as well.
