Oh. OK. I am less confused now. Thank you for your patience. I've never
encountered this thing called windows management instrumentation before so
I'm starting with a knowledge base of zero (other than what I glean from
google and learn from you from your kind efforts).

I right clicked on the WinXP SP2 "My Computer", pressed "Manage",
"Services and Applications", and right clicked on "WMI Control",
"Properties" which then said "Connecting to Windows Management" and
brought up a 5-tab "WMI Control Properties" form.

Pressing on the "Logging" tab for the first time, I see it was actually
set to "Errors only". As a test, I set it next to "Verbose" and noticed
LOTS of new logs showed up in C:\windows\system32\wbem\Logs, e.g.,
Framework.log, provss.log, wbemcore.log, WinMgmt.log, wbemprox.log, etc.

Looking in the various logs, I find strange reports such as:
CWbemProviderGlue::Init 12/18/2005 11:14:14.228 thread:3982
[d:\xpsprtm\admin\wmi\wbem\sdk\framedyn\wbemglue.cp p.199]
Failed to open thread token: (1008) 12/18/2005 11:14:14.228 thread:3984
But my D: drive is almost wholly empty (except for something hidden called
"System Volume Information" and "MSOCache".

Do these tell us anything?
