Device Manager Shows Up Empty i.e. Blank Then MMC Error Data Box
Running Windows XP Sp3 with all updates.
After a recent boot up problem Device Manager stopped showing data, i.e.
when open to view devices there is nothing there except a blank page.
If left sitting for a couple minutes an error message comes up that MMC
(Microsoft Management Console) has experienced an error.
Is there any way to reestablish visibility in Device Manager without
reloading the machine.
I tried a System Restore roll back and running SFC /scannow without success.
I really don't want to reload.
The machine seems to be operating okay otherwise.

I did not have any success with this fix. It did inspire me to check the
Microsoft Knowledge base. I was not able to identify any solution there
either.

Did you just install SP3?

Device Manager and Network Connections may be blank after you install
Windows XP Service Pack 3

Device Manager may not show any devices and Network Connections may not show
any network connections after you install Windows XP Service Pack 3

Re: Device Manager Shows Up Empty i.e. Blank Then MMC Error Data Box
SP3 was installed from a single slip streamed disk, which is currently
running on two other machines. When initially installed 8 months ago it
worked fine. I believe it was functioning properly 4-5 months ago.
This is a new problem.
I am suspicious of the Norton software currently installed. Actually
suspicious of Norton at all times. What we are running is Norton System
Works.

It appears that Kellys Korner is no more, i.e. it looks like its off line.
