Component Services hangs on Win2k Server

In my Windows 2000 Server, the Component Services Administration MMC either won't show anything under Component Services or sometimes shows "Computers" but nothing under that. The MMC runs, but when trying to drill down, it either locks up ("Program not responding") or it just exits. Can Component Services be reinstalled or repaired somehow?
This sounds a lot like a known bug that surfaced after Windows 2000 SP4 was released. There is a specific hotfix available for it called "Windows 2000 Post-Service Pack 4 COM+ 1.0 Hotfix Rollup Package 28." For more info check out MS KB Article 829181.
