    click view at the top then customize and see if you have it set like mine

    otherwise I do not know why your performance monitor snap-in doesn't have the other two choices.

    I found this searching the net:
    How 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\system32
    C:\Windows\System32> lodctr /R
    After that all Performance Counters were available again!
    Hope this helps anybody else too

    These updates are not just for upgrading they are also Windows Update improvements:


    those 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.

    This did the trick

    I have Admin Local & standard MS user accounts. Don't used to login into Admin account at all these days, totally forgot about it .

    But from my standard account, I didn't get an UAC notification as mentioned in the tutorial even though it is set to always notify:

    Good security.. one needs to give a password for every little change, but that's the same as sudo in Linux and worth it.
