I'm getting a number of errors in my Windows 2000 Small Business Server Health Monitor as follows

Server Memory : Critical condition. WMI Status: 8 Timeout reached. Data Collector may be misconfigured.

Processor : Critical condition. WMI Status: 8 Timeout reached. Data Collector may be misconfigured

Server Memory : Critical condition. WMI Status: 8 Timeout reached. Data Collector may be misconfigured.

Redirector : Critical condition. WMI Status: 8 Timeout reached. Data Collector may be misconfigured.

System Information : Critical condition. WMI Status: 8 Timeout reached. Data Collector may be misconfigured.

Cache : Critical condition. WMI Status: 8 Timeout reached. Data Collector may be misconfigured.

There is a common thread here.  Can anyone tell me what is wrong here, and how to fix it.

Tks Ray

    The only thing I can think of that is running is Big Brother that gives alerts.  I can't think of anything else that is using WMI.
