I have a Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 machine that recently shutdown due to a power cut, after rebooting the Performance Logs and Alerts Service will not start.
When I try to restart the service is stops automatically with a message that it has no work to do.
Also in my event log I have the following error message
The performance strings in the Performance registry value is corrupted when process Performance extension counter provider. BaseIndex value from Performance registry is the first DWORD in Data section, LastCounter value is the second DWORD in Data section, and LastHelp value is the third DWORD in Data section.
Any ideas how to fix this corruption.
