    This doesn't seem to be a unique problem but I haven't fund the solution.

    When I try to open Hardware Manager and other select MMC snapins I get a
    dialog that Microsoft Management Console stopped working.

    I've run SFC as Administrator and SFC finds a corrupt MMC.EXE (apparently a
    Hash problem) but is unable to fix the problem. Is there a fix that can be
    applied to get the console running?

    I can see there's been a massive amount of replies to this question. I'm
    getting
    somewhat of the same when I go to open Diskkeeper 2008. It used to work, but
    now I get this thrilling message, "Microsoft Management Console has stopped
    working" ...
    Is it possible for anyone on here to give a fix for this? Thanks!

    there is a hot fix from widows that fix this problem like a charm

    'When I tried to open Device Manager or the Computer Management window,
    I received an error message: "MMC cannot open the file
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\devmgmt.msc"'
