VBS script stopped working

I have a vbs script to copy the security event log so that I can back it up. I got the code from MS and it has been working for months, but last night it stopped. The code is:

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate,(Backup,Security)}!\\" & _
        strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colLogFiles = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * from Win32_NTEventLogFile where LogFileName='Security'")

For Each objLogfile in colLogFiles
    errBackupLog = objLogFile.BackupEventLog("c:\scripts\security.evt")
Next


When I run the script manually, I get the following error (on a command line):

C:\scripts\SecLogBackup.vbs(9, 1) (null): Cannot start a new logon session with an ID that is already in use

I suspect that a windows update changed some security permissions. Is there a way to make it work again without removing recent updates?

Thanks in advance

http://forums.iis.net/t/1168512.aspx seems to indicate that it's a conflict with KB980436.  Do you have that installed? Can you remove it and reboot, if so?

It turns out that sharepoint and wsus weren't working either (even though all of the services were running). I removed the update and rebooted and everything appears to be working properly again. I don't understand why I started having problems last night when the update was installed in 2010. But thanks for the help.
