Error when configuring SQL server area configuration

i get this error when i try and configure sql 2005 surface area

Computer localhost does not exist on the network, or the computer cannot be configured remotely. Verify that the remote computer has the required Windows Management Instrumentation components and then try again. (SQLSAC)
