I've been having this problem for some time now:
Unable to open the Server service. Server performance data will not be returned. Error code returned is in data DWORD 0.
This error is caused by Perfnet, and I really have no clue on how to stop it from occuring again.
I'm using Windows XP Service Pack 2, I'm having Nod32 as antivirus.
The machine I'm running these is:
