Windows® Management Instrumentation (WMI) is a component of the Microsoft® Windows® operating system that provides management information and control in an enterprise environment. By using industry standards, managers can use WMI to query and set information on desktop systems, applications, networks, and other enterprise components. Developers can use WMI to create event monitoring applications that alert users when important incidents occur.

Johanna.... Thanks for your reply. Your input is always appreciated, sincerely.

I had previously read the article you linked, among others. However, some of the discussion in these articles is somewhat vague, at least for a novice like me. To get to the point, it appears to me that WMI software is aimed, at least partially, at monitoring/logging remote Network computer activities by sysadmin folks. In my readings on this topic, sounds like Big Brother watching.
