Repititious WMI warnining in Win 2000 Server System Log, Event ID 12104

We keep getting this reptitious warning in our Windows 2000 System Log.  "An event was fired specifying a static instance name that could not be resolved." Source WMI, Event ID: 12104.  This warning comes about every 5 to 35 seconds and eventually fills the system log.  I have no idea what is causing this.  Can anyone help us with this problem?

There is a separate WMI log directory (typically at WINNT\System32\wbem\logs).   Check out the files you find in there to see what's going on.

I'd bet somebody has deployed an application using a WMI Event handler... and you're missing a key piece of the application.
