What happens if you try to invoke it in two other ways:

(1) Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management

(2) Start>Run>compmgmt.msc

Joe Winograd, Fellow&MVEDeveloperCommented:
Btw, if the two ideas in my previous post don't work, try running compmgmt.msc in an elevated command prompt. If you don't know how to do that, here's one way:

Start>All Programs>Accessories
Right-click Command Prompt and select Run as administrator (this is known as an elevated command prompt)
Run compmgmt.msc in the command prompt window

Open an elevated command prompt (as I explained how to do above) and enter this command:

sfc /scannow

This is called the the System File Checker tool. You may learn more about it here:

If the reason that you're not getting Computer Management is because of missing or corrupted system files, this should fix it. Regards, Joe

And if that does not help, run a Repair Install.

It will not affect personal data or installed programs, but a backup first is always a good idea.

Try checking Task Manager for any stuck mmc.exe processes. If you find any, forcefully kill them then try the Manage command again (or click Start > Run > type compmgmt.mscOK)
