This event ID warning happens when the disk performance counter is
disabled and you have a program trying to collect performance data on
the disk. You might have a tool or program that is set to run at this
particular time and it tries to gather data as part of its routine. To
fix this enable the disk counter, at a Command Prompt issue the
following command:

diskperf -y

See:
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;296187
Application Log Events Generated When You Start Performance Counter Query
(Written for Windows 2000 but also applies to Windows XP)

I don't think however that this event in particular has anything to do
with your not being able to access the internet at that time, but maybe
something else that the underlying program or tool is doing might be
causing other problems.

@John John MVP
The dos command that you gave me does not seem to work on this computer I
get a message that says:-
diskperf-y is not recognised as an internal or external command operable
program or batch file. Any other sugestions? I went into the regestry direct
and changed the default value from (preferance not set) to 1is this correct?
i am still getting the "Warnining" in event viewer.

"-y" is a switch and needs to be separated by a space. So, as suggested
by John John - MVP, type this command:

diskperf -y

Maybe just a typo on your part but you need to space the command from
its switches. Diskperf is the command and -y is the switch, make sure
that there is a space between them:

diskperf -y

Any other sugestions? I went into the regestry direct

You mean the 'Disable Performance Counters' value? If you set it to 1
the counter is disabled, if you want to enable it set the value to 0 or
delete the value altogether.

started receiving the same error Perfdisk (id:2001) and PerfNet (id:2004).
the two errors are always together and they are preceeded by a WMDM PMSP
Service message - not sure if they are related. from what i have found is
that the

diskperf -y

is used with Windows 2000 server. I ran the command on my Win XP SP3 pc
with all patches. the command is unrecognized command.

i have not added any regestry entries at the moment.....saw the error today.
still looking for a solution

thanks...stlcc1
