I suspect that the WMI Performance Adapter is the culprit. Try starting it up again.

Or maybe not - apologies. Are other WMI services running OK? Everything I've seen points to some sort of WMI error.

Also, do you mean that the Dependencies tab is missing, or just that you see no dependencies listed?

everything's running fine and the tabs no missing the dependencies aren't showing up. i mean i can research them externally and find out, but this is a pain.

hold the phone, i just turned WMI back on and that was it. how did you guess?

I guess that he didn't guess. That was deep knowledge and/or experience! :cheesy:
