WMI service grayed out Server 2008 R2

I upgraded a 2003 R2 server to Server 2008 R2. Before the upgrade, the WMI service was fully accessible. After the upgrade, it is grayed out. Can't install anything now that uses the windows installer. UAC or firewall are not the issue (turned off). Any ideas?

From an elevated Command Prompt, complete the following steps and post the results:

1.      net stop winmgmt <Enter>

2.      Winmgmt /salvagerepository %windir%\System32\wbem <Enter>

3.      net start winmgmt <Enter>

4.      exit <Enter>

Thanks all - I dropped it out of the domain into workgroup and was able to fully access the service. I appreciate the responses.
