Lansweeper inventory issue with windows 7

Hi:
 
      I´m having problems to inventory computers running windows 7 on AD domain. The lansweeper administration interface show the computers, but they are in a "not scanned" status.

      I´ve followed all the lansweeper recomendations to achieve this inventory, but I still can´t inventory them.(The error code I´m having is "Access is denied 0x80070005" )

      I know, or I should say I think I know, that the problem is WMI. When I look in one of these computers, in their event viewer I can see many event id 63 issues.(I havent posted one of them because the OS languje is spanish). Basically it says that

"one provider has registered itself in the name space of the wmi  ROOT\CIMV2\Applications\* to use the account LocalSystem. This account has privileges and the provider can originate one security infringement if it doesn´t impersonate properly user requests."

i´m sorry for that horrible traduction...

Could some expert give my some advices in order to get rid of this issues?

Please feel free to comment or request more information.

Thanks in advance.

If you're scanning the network then the account used to run the LAN sweeper service, needs to be in the 'Administrators' group of the PCs you're running the inventory on.

@NotVeryFat:

      1.- nice name XD

      2.- As you told, I added the account to the local admin group and it works, so thanks for the advice.

Finally, it´s weird because that account is a member of the domain admins group, wich appears in the local administrators group, but won´t work still I manually add the specific account we use to scan the computers.
