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)
 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):
 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.
