OH DEAR!
I've only seen that once before - and palmed the 'client' off on the MS ITPro forum.....

I suggest you can try the following:

1. Re-registered the following DLLs.
a. Net stop vss
b. Net stop swprv
c. Go to system32 folder by typing
d. CD %systemroot%\system32
regsvr32 ole32.dll
regsvr32 vss_ps.dll
Vssvc /Register
regsvr32 /i swprv.dll
regsvr32 /i eventcls.dll
regsvr32 es.dll
regsvr32 stdprov.dll
regsvr32 vssui.dll
regsvr32 msxml.dll
regsvr32 msxml3.dll
regsvr32 msxml4.dll
regsvr32 Vssapi.dll
regsvr32 Vssui.dll
e. Net start vss
f. Net start swprv
2. Disable all security program (such as McAfee) to check whether this is the issue. 3. Test the issue in Clean Boot mode.
4. Refer to the following article to check the issue.

OK
let's see if this does anything.
Open an Elevated COmmand Prompt, and run the following commands....

Net Stop Winmgmt
CD /D %Windir%\system32\wbem
Ren Repository Repository.old
Net Start Winmgmt

WAIT 10 minutes, then reboot.
Then try the VSSADMIN LIST WRITERS again - if you get any output this time, run another MGADiag report.
