That's normal - let's look at the files themselves....

Ok - I think I know what the problem is.... The files are in use
Now all I have to do is work out which service is using them

Nope - the only controlling service I cna find is the Winmgmt service.
Ah! I see the problem

Try this instead ...

Net Stop Winmgmt /Y
CD /D %Windir%\system32\wbem

Ren Repository Repository.old
Net Start Winmgmt

That's not the problem
The problem is that Winmgmt isn't allowing itself to be stopped.
let's see whether that can be fixed easily....

That all looks normal.

What happens if you try to stop the service while in Safe Mode?, or in a Clean Boot? How to perform a clean boot to troubleshoot a problem in Windows Vista or Windows 7

The command Ren Repository Repository.old was successful after a clean boot!

Ahah!
good - the obvious question then becomes what was blocking it.
More on that later.
reboot while still in 'clean boot', then reset the clean boot to normal and reboot again
what result do you get now from
