For Windows XP and Windows 2000 Servers:
winmgmt /clearadap winmgmt /kill winmgmt /unregserver winmgmt /regserver winmgmt /resyncperf
For Windows 2003 Servers:
wmiadap.exe /c wmiadap.exe /f lodctr /R
For Windows 7 and Windows 2008 Servers:

After the last command, there should be a “WMI Repository has been reset” message returned that verifies the command was successful.

- Run the following commands:
cd C:\Windows\System32\wbem\ for /f %s in ('dir /b *.mof') do mofcomp %s NOTE: This will take a minute or so to complete. for /f %s in ('dir /b en-us\*.mfl') do mofcomp en-us\%s
Open Performance Monitor to verify that all counters can be loaded.
