If you're unable to start MIK6 on your Windows machine getting the following exception:

System.Management.ManagementException: Invalid namespace
at System.Management.ThreadDispatch.Start()
at System.Management.ManagementScope.Initialize()
at System.Management.ManagementEventWatcher.Initialize()
at System.Management.ManagementEventWatcher.Start()
at MixedInKey.Services.SystemEventsListener.SetUsbDriveListener()

at System.Windows.Threading.ExceptionWrapper.InternalRealCall(Delegate callback, Object args, Int32 numArgs)
at MS.Internal.Threading.ExceptionFilterHelper.TryCatchWhen(Object source, Delegate method, Object args, Int32 numArgs, Delegate catchHandler)

The solution:

1) Open up 'Computer Management' (Right click on the Windows 'start' button)
2) Select 'Services and Applications' (left side panel)
3) Right click on 'WMI Control' > 'Properties'
4) On the [General] tab you should see some error messages
5) Go to the [Backup/Restore] tab and choose to manually restore
6) Select the file aptly named 'Corrupted.rec' found in 'C:\Windows\System32\wbem\Repository'
7) Wait for the service to restart
7) Start MIK6

...And Bob's your uncle. Enjoy!
