One more question are you logged in as an administrator?
I found this searching the net:
sourceHow to manually rebuild Performance Counter Library values.
Article ID: (KB)300956
This article is originally related to Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000, but I tried the part which is listed under Rebuilding all Performance Counters worked for me. Just open a Command Prompt running under administrator rights and do the following:C:> cd windows\system32After that all Performance Counters were available again!
C:\Windows\System32> lodctr /R
Hope this helps anybody else too
source WindowsITProthose changes are important.Additionally, with the Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 servicing releases also comes code for Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012 R2. Joseph assures us that Windows 10 is not coming to Windows Server just because these updates are applicable, again suggesting that Microsoft will be using the new plumbing for additional deliveries. It's possible that in the future this Windows Update version will become mandatory and a requirement for receiving new updates.
Here's where you can get the applicable updates:
Windows 7 WU client (requires SP1): https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2990214/
Windows 8.1 WU client: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3044374/
P.S. For Windows 8.1, the April 2014 roll-up (2919355) is required as a prerequisite.
Good security.. one needs to give a password for every little change, but that's the same as sudo in Linux and worth it.I have Admin Local & standard MS user accounts. Don't used to login into Admin account at all these days, totally forgot about it
