Hi everyone. I have an Acer Aspire 9410z laptop with Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP2. I can't seem to get the Performance Monitor function to load correct in the Reliability and Performance monitor. If I bring up the R&P monitor, and then click directly on Performance Monitor, I get an error message: "MMC cannot initialize the snap-in". However, if I select Reliability Monitor first, and then click on Performance Monitor, I get a blank white graph. If I then attempt to add counters via the green "+" sign or a right click, the dialog box that comes up is completely devoid of all object and counters.  Here's what I've tried thus far...

 

- Ran "sfc /scannow" which found no file corruption.

 

- Verified that "Performance Logs and Alerts" and "Windows Management Instrumentation" services are running. 

 

- Rebuilt performance counter library with "lodctr /r" from admin command prompt, and then verified that most of them were actually enabled with "lodctr /q".

 

- Reviewed similar issues on Microsoft website (kb127207, kb300956) to no avail.

 

- Don't really see any errors in the Event Log.

 

Been working on this for 3 days now and I'm about out of ideas, so any advice would be kindly appreciated. Thanks in advance...

Just an update. I've trudged through some additional similar threads on various websites and as a result have run the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility, and the System Update Readiness Tool for Vista. Still no luck though. Any thoughts?
