When running one of the tasks in the action pane of System Center Operations Manager 2007, the results may be displayed in a window as unformatted XML. This is due to a SQL transform that was added in the RTM (original) version and was changed with Service Pack 1.  If you install a slipstream version of OpsMgr SP1 you will not see the issue.  Also note that in my experience, simply installing SP1 on top of an RTM installation will not resolve this either - you'll only avoid this if you install a slipstreamed SP1 version from scratch.

If you can't or didn't install a slipstream version of SP1 then you can run the following script in the SQL management studio to correct the issue:

use OperationsManager

if not exists
(
    select * from dbo.UIDatatypeTransform inner join dbo.Datatype
    on ( dbo.UIDatatypeTransform.DatatypeId = dbo.Datatype.DatatypeId )
    where dbo.Datatype.DatatypeName = 'WorkflowsReport'
)
begin
insert into dbo.UIDatatypeTransform (DatatypeId, LanguageCode)
    select DatatypeId, 'enu' from dbo.Datatype
    where dbo.Datatype.DatatypeName = 'WorkflowsReport'
end

update dbo.UIDatatypeTransform
set Transform =
