As per Microsoft: "The performance counter DLL could not communicate with the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Performance Adapter service. WMI allows developers to define high-performance objects. WMI includes a performance counter DLL that makes these performance objects visible in Perfmon. This DLL communicates with WMI through the named WMI Performance Adapter service. When the performance counter DLL cannot communicate with the WMI Performance Adapter service, WMI high-performance objects are not visible in Perfmon. The most common reason they cannot communicate is that the service is not enabled (start type=disabled). Most high-performance objects come from device drivers such as those commonly used for batteries in laptops". See MSW2KDB for more details.
