I have a Windows Server 2008 domain controller with a bunch of Windows XP and 7 hosts. When I attempt to use Group Policy Results Wizard on some of the Windows 7 boxes I receive the error "Access Denied." Windows Firewall is not enabled on these machines. What gives?

It operates at Windows 2000 functional level.

According to a post on there, running the following commands in Command Prompt solves the issue:

cd /d %windir%\system32 
regsvr32 /n /I userenv.dll 
cd wbem 
mofcomp scersop.mof 
gpupdate /force
