This error occurs due to a problem with the Windows Performance Counters, fortunately this can be solved.
Click Start, type cmd right click cmd.exe, and select Run as administrator.
At the prompt, type lodctr /r and press ENTER.
Apparently, Windows keeps some counters cache in the registry at
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib\009 \
Help. If this cache becomes corrupted (has blank lines), you get the above errors - and
lodctr /r rebuilds that cache.
