I cant thank you enough for the time and effort you put in on top of your work load, its a real pain having to support a server that was dumped in my lap broken.

Hello Steff :)
This is going to be a multi-part fix. You will not notice any immediate improvement after just the first post or two, but hopefully after three or four we will have you back up and running again. The fact that this is a server adds a few complications, but I am hoping that we can work around those, rather than hit a dead end. Anyway, won't find out until we try :)
I am just putting together the first registry fix to cover the bulk of your corruptions, and then we tweak until we get it perfect. While I am making that, I would like to deal with one of the more complicated corruptions.
First, please use an Elevated Command Prompt: How to start an Elevated Command Prompt in Windows 7 and Vista
reg export HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMPONENTS\DerivedData\VersionedIndex\6.0.6002.18005_0028c5a9\ComponentFamilies\x86_microsoft-windows-p..-wsman-pluginworker_31bf3856ad364e35_none_9a4e9c942522ba6c %userprofile%\Desktop\RegistryExport1.reg
Please right click on the created .reg file > Edit (to open in Notepad), and check it came out OK. Then right click on it > Send to > Compressed (zipped) folder, and upload it here.
Next, please browse to that key in regedit, and open up its subkeys. You should see one which may look like this: ㉦㘵瀡灳畬楧睮牫搮汬 (not sure whether you will be able to see this, but anyway, it looks like Chinese or similar characters).
Basically, that shouldn't be like that. Now, before I see the registry export, I cannot be quite sure of how this key *should* look.
Please note down and send me the contents of that key if it hasn't shown up nicely in the registry export.
I will let you know what to do with it later. You are probably going to have to fix it manually, because it will trip up some of the tools we use, but I can't yet tell you what the good data is for you to correct it yet. All in good time :)
Your next set of instructions will come as soon as I can.
