Hello all,

I have a little software problem that I cant seem to find answers to or help with anywhere. I have XP Home(5.1.2600). I re-installed XP many times trying to fiqure out where the problem starts from. I should mention that my computer runs very good and is stable.
My problem is running the performance monitor. It works until I install People PC. The tell me Windows is the problem. I have installed w/sp1,w/sp2,and without service packs. The problem only surfaces when I install my dial up software to get on the Internet. Perfmon quits working. It does not freeze, it just does not work. I have tried w/services at default and all on.
I am getting Event ID: 1517 and 2004(perfnet unable to open the server service). I "think" I get this error when perfmon is working also. I have turned on the server service and perfmon still is frozen.
I have removed and then added the counters and tried creating a custom MMC. Still no results. I have used the Extensible Counter to disable the perfNet.dll. I can not rest until I fiqure this out. There is not alot of resources for performance monitor on the Internet.

Thank you kindly,

Seems like an issue with People PC rather than a perfmon issue to me. I'd check their website for info (I couldn't get in without registering).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
