Try repairing and rebuilding the WMI service...

Click on start>Run>cmd

On the command prompt run the below steps in order

1. net stop winmgmt
then go to the C:\Windows\system32\wbem directory and delete the Repository directory

2. net start winmgmt

3. cd /d %windir%\system32\wbem
4. for %i in (*.dll) do RegSvr32 -s %i
5. for %i in (*.exe) do %i /RegServer


6. cd /d %windir%\sysWOW64\wbem
7. for %i in (*.dll) do RegSvr32 -s %i
8. for %i in (*.exe) do %i /RegServer

reboot and let me know ...

NOTE: A word of advice... Rebuilding the WMI repository will most probably result in some 3rd party products not working until their setup is re-run & their MOF re-added back to the repository.

The report you posted has instructions on how to attempt a repair of the WMI/MOF files. Have you tried them?

Also, I notice a lot of improper shutdowns. Do you have (or have you had) BSOD problems?

Follow these instructions so I can look at the minidump and also look at your system.

Don't try to rebuild WMI manually on Win7, as you could make it worse. You should execute the following 2 commands from an elevated cmd prompt:
winmgmt /standalonehost
winmgmt /resetrepository

You could also verify if WMI is consistent by running

winmgmt /verifyrepository at the command prompt

if it says inconsistent ... Then follow the advice by Cluberti

If nothing works ... follow this from Microsoft

If /salvagerepository or /resetrepository does not resolve the issue, then manually rebuild repository:

1. Change startup type to Window Management Instrumentation (WMI) Service to disabled
2. Stop the WMI Service; you may need to stop IP Helper Service first or other dependent services before it allows you to stop WMI Service
3. Rename the repository folder: C:\WINDOWS\system32\wbem\Repository to Repository.old
4. Open a CMD Prompt with elevated privileges
5. CD windows\system32\wbem
6 for /f %s in ('dir /b /s *.dll') do regsvr32 /s %s
7. Set the WMI Service type back to Automatic and start WMI Service
8. cd /d c:\ ((go to the root of the c drive, this is important))
9. for /f %s in ('dir /s /b *.mof *.mfl') do mofcomp %s
10. Reboot the server
