comment Windows Performance Monitor keeps trying to add unwanted counters
@neosys well, interesting to know that I'm not the only one that has encountered this problem. I've stopped using reports, and so far I haven't run into this again, but if you put your comment as an answer I'll mark it as correct, since it still is a solution.

comment Remote Performance Monitoring SQL Server
Thanks! Indeed, my local machine is running a x86 client version of Windows and the server is running x64. If I had one more point I'd upvote you, but unfortunately I can't :)

comment Why are SQL Server pages 8 KB?
Regarding SQL Server, it has never moved from 4KB to 8KB as you said. It was 2KB in SQL 6.5 and earlier versions, and moved to 8KB in SQL 7.0 and later versions.

comment Why are SQL Server pages 8 KB?
Well, it says on Windows Internals 5th edition that Windows has a small page size of 4KB for both x86 and x64 architectures. Do you have any reference that says Windows moved from 4KB to 8KB? Also, yes, just after posting I realized I should have said "default cluster size of 4KB".
