    Fixing Windows Performance Counters

    Some users have resolved SPM related performance counter issues by running this Microsoft Windows command as Administrator: "Lodctr /R" (the R is uppercase).

    This will rebuild the Windows Performance Counters if they are corrupted somehow.
    See these Microsoft KB's for more detail:

    Steps to run the command "Lodctr /R":
    ========================================
    You'll need a DOS prompt with elevated privileges (even above the normal Admin):

    1) Start Menu/All Programs/Accessories, right click on "Command Prompt" and select "Run as administrator".

    2) At the command prompt, type in "Lodctr /R" and hit Enter. (Please note that the R is uppercase)
    Example:
     cd c:\windows\system32
     lodctr /R
     cd c:\windows\sysWOW64
     lodctr /R

    3) This command may take several moments to complete, and if successful should display something like:
     Info: Successfully rebuilt performance counter setting from system backup store

    4) Resyncing the counters with Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI):
     WINMGMT.EXE /RESYNCPERF
     Stop and restart the Performance Logs and Alerts service.
     Stop and restart the Windows Management Instrumentation service.

    5) In some cases, restarting your computer is necessary to complete this process.
