I'm having a problem with some SMS 2.0 sp2 clients (NT4 SP6a mainly Dell Optiplexes) with Dell WMI Instrumentation installed. On occassion (on some PCs at every boot) after pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del the PC hangs for a couple of minutes and then shows only the username and password fields. You can then logon locally. However, the explorer shell does not start and you have to start it manually. When you then have a desktop up the service database is locked (most services do not seem to have fully completed startup). This situation is fixed by uninstalling the instrumentation and disabling the DMI service. However, this isn't a perfect scenario as I've promised my boss I can produce reports with tag numbers. Is there some prerequisite to installing the instrumentation I don't know about? I'd appreciate any advice you might have.
