  Every time I turn around and have a problem with virus software and what is/isn't installed I get the same response. "Our software is just looking at the WMI to see what virus software in installed". My understanding is that Security Center looks at the WMI to see what is installed too.

   Where is this elusive WMI? Registry? I need to determine what the "WMI" things I have installed as far as virus software goes.

Nice little utility but I might be a little over my head here. I searched for some WMI scripts to query the virus software installed on my computer. Loaded the query in to this utility and tried to execute it. All of them came back immediately with a "invalid parameter" error. What am I doing wrong?
