Windows 7: MMC could not create the snap-in.

13 Nov 2016   #1

windows vista 64
MMC could not create the snap-in.

When I try to access Windows Firewall Advanced Settings I get an error:

"MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might not have been installed correctly."

I have followed instructions on various forums attempting to fix, such as:

deleting the relevant registry key
re-installing the .net framework

Nothing seems to work.

Other snap-ins appear to have the same problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

I saw in other posts the first step should be: SFC /SCANNOW I did that and attached is the CBS.log file. It said at the end that Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. I tried rebooting with no luck.

gpedit.msc - mmc cannot create the snap-in
Like the title says, it gives me that error. The other .msc's load fine in the MMC but gpedit will not. I've searched for this and tried every solution I've found, but nothing works - they were all solutions geared towards XP and Vista: registering the dll's, changing the registry entry in the...
