I am having frequent failures during multimedia file transcodeing (ConvertXtoDVD) or ISO-splitting (DVDFab6) and also when using DVDStyler). The following entries always appear in the Event Log :

Event Type: Warning
Event Source: PerfDisk
Event Category: None
Event ID: 2001
Date: 8/12/2009
Time: 8:25:28 AM
User: N/A
Computer: CATBOX4
Unable to read the disk performance information from the system. Disk performance counters must be enabled for at least one physical disk or logical volume in order for these counters to appear. Disk performance

counters can be enabled by using the Hardware Device Manager property pages. Status code returned is data DWORD 0.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at

0000: aa 05 00 00 ...

The Hardware Device Manager property pages have NO such setting as suggested above. I have repeatedly run DISKPERF -Y or DISKPERF -YD and re-booted. The problem always reappears the first time I run

the same kind of task. "chkdsk /R /X" reports all 3 drives clean. I have defragged all drives using SysinternalsSuite - Contig+PowerDefragmenter. The Microsoft events link is of no use whatever ! Would

defragging the page file make any difference? How about installing and running "Caschman 7.0" ?

Any advice greatly appreciated !!

System info :
XP Home, SP3 (32 bit)
CPU - AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+
GPU - All-in-Wonder 2006 PCI-E Edition
