    One of the Windows 2003 servers I look after has developed a problem. I
    cannot use any of the admin tool snapins.

    As an example if I try to open Event Viewer I get the following.

    MMC cannot open the file C:\WINNT\system32\eventvwr.msc
    This may be because the files do not exist, is not an MMC console, or was
    created by a later version of MMC. This may also be because you do not have
    sufficient access rights to the file.

    I can create a new MMC in author mode and add the eventvwr snapin OK so
    everything is not toally screwed but this is a pain in the proverbial.

    Any help is appreciated.

    regsvr32 C:\Windows\system32\msxml3.dll
