System Recovery 2013 Windows 8 issues
I downloaded evaluation copy of System Recovery 2013 and installed it on my Windows 8 Pro 64-bit laptop. Install itself was easy and flawless but after a system reboot my problems started. When I tried to run System Recovery 2013 first time I got an error message "You do not have sufficient privileges to perform the operation", and SSR launcher would exit. I tried to run SSR as "Administrator" but got same message. I went through Windows event logs but counldn't find anything regarding SSR privileges. I also went through documentation and didn't find any references about this message during application launch.
I also noticed that my laptop fan was blowing at full speed, as I investigated the issue I saw that Windows WMI process was consuming 30% of CPU time (4 thread system), WMI was stuck somehow. Windows restart did not fix WMI, it was in same state after every reboot.
As I wasn't able to run SSR and my Windows was broken by stuck WMI process my only option was to uninstall SSR 2013. Uninstall was VERY slow but fortunately it did succeed and my laptop is running normally again.
My laptop is high spec system, Core i7 2640M CPU, 16 GB RAM and SSD, so problem should not be because of lack of computing resources. Windows 8 is pretty clean install, no 3rd party AV agents of firewalls at this point.
Any ideas what might have gone wrong?
