Have you already eliminated these two known issues as possible candidate solutions?

Double checking, because it's caused untold grief over the last few years... please don't be offended at the question -- but to confirm: you do know that running a command prompt (is not equal to) simply running a command prompt while logged in as an administrator user... yes?

Are you running Windows 2008 (32 or 64 bits) or Windows 2008 R2?
Are you in a domain, or non-domain environment?

When you open Power Shell with 'run as administrator' permissions and execute the 'Enable-PSRemoting' commandlet, does it give you an error message?

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Yeah I always run as administrator with anything becouse it can bring funny issues up. To answer the question I am running Server 2008 R2 in a domain environment.

And just to confirm, if you execute "setspn -l <yourservername>" you don't have an entry which starts HTTP ?

setspn -l will list server principle names.  If you have one which looks like "HTTP/<servername> <accountname>"... clip it to notepad, and try running "setspn -d HTTP/<servername> <accountname>" to remove it.  (You can put it back later using the exact command with a "-a" instead of a "-d".)

(Well... this assumes you didn't try everything from the first article... since that blog post doesn't actually tell you how to find and remove the HTTP SPN.  The article does indicate that the HTTP SPN needs to be gone during installation, and when the scan is actually performed.)
