When you install or upgrade your computer to Windows 2000, the following Event ID may be logged to the application event log:
NOTE: This entry appears only for the first restart; subsequent restarts do not log this event.
This event is logged as a result of a timing condition between Windows Setup and the loading of the Windows Management Instrumentation service (Winmgmt.exe). The error message has no effect on the performance of the computer.
To work around this behavior you can ignore the events or clear the entries by clicking Action, and then clicking Clear all Events.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows 2000.
