    When trying to stop the Windows Management Instrumentation service, you get this error:

    Windows could not stop the Windows Management Instrumentation service on Local Computer

    Error 1052: The requested control is not valid for this service.

    In my case, I think that it is the antivirus preventing me from stopping the Windows Management Instrumentation service, because the antivirus service is a dependant service. for me, I’ll just restart the computer to restart the Windows Management Instrumentation service. for those looking to stop the service so they can do something like install BizTalk Server, a little research tells me that disabling the service, then restarting the computer will enable you to stop the Windows Management Instrumentation service.

    For others, running the WMI Diagnostics Utility may help you troubleshoot your issue.
