    MMC could not create the snap-in


    When I try to access Windows Firewall Advanced Settings I get an error:"MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might not have been installed correctly."I have followed instructions on various forums attempting to fix, such as:deleting the relevant registry keyre-installing the .net frameworkrebootingNothing seems to work.Other snap-ins appear to have the same problem.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    MMC - Could not create the Snap-in

    Having Windows 10 Version 1703 64-based on a HP Laptop.

    Tried to install gpedit.msc, but continuously have error message

    'MMC could not create the snap-in'

    with 'CLSID: {8FCOB734-A0E1-11D1-A7D3-0000F87571E3}'

    Have tried trolling Google with all suggestions

    1) sfc /scannow - with no issues found

    2) MMC could not create the snap-in - Recherche Google

    3) Fix for MMC could not create snap-in for Group Policy Object editor at Multiplay Labs

    4) Enable/Disable Group Policy in Windows Xp from cmd or Regedit

    5) How To Fix MMC Could Not Create The Snap-in - Troubleshooter

    Where one suggests to delete the 'CLSID: {8FCOB734-A0E1-11D1-A7D3-0000F87571E3}' in the registry to create a new clsid on reboot/restart, I cannot delete it as it returns as an error.

    Have installed the gpedit.msc on my Tablet with no issues with same gpedit download.

    Any clues
