Accessed Denied when Querying WMI

I have several machines that I get Access Denied on when querying through WMI. If WMI is corrupted the below batch usually fixes it, but not in this case.  Any best practice steps on resolving this? All accounts used to query are domain admin.

It turns out I had to re-join the machine to the domain. Thanks for the attempt though. :)

I see the script runs locally - right?

So... do you get an error when running the script?  Or just an error when querying WMI?

If the later, when querying from remote or local or both?

Yes it runs locally. No error when running the script. I get the error when remotely checking wmi.

Can you query WMI locally on the affected computers?  Perhaps you only need to enable remote connections to WMI on those systems...

What version of Windows are the problem hosts running?  If it's post-XP, review the steps in this TechNet article to verify that remote management is enabled on the systems:
