Hello all,

Whenever I add get-wmiobject to my script, I've noticed the output window suddenly starts saying things like "WMI Browser: (\\.\Root\blah) Access denied" over and over and it goes through every wmi class and completely slows down my Powershell Studio responsiveness when this happens. How do I stop this from happening whenever I use gwmi?

TIA

I'm currently unable to reproduce this. I have a script that uses Get-WmiObject to update user permissions and I don't have any messages in the Output Panel.

Are you able to provide the exact steps of what you do to make this occur? Do you run the script and then the messages start?
