There may be a problem with this extensible counter or the service it is collecting data from or the system may have been very busy when this call was attempted.

  1. unfortunately I do not remember what I did to sort this one, its been sometime, but as I said check the URL listed above it has some solutions listed in that.

    one solution as listed on the above page at eventid is this

    “After changing my network configuration and removing an internal NIC on my server (now my router handles DHCP) I got this event as well as event 1008 from source Perflib (“The Open Procedure for service “AppleTalk” in DLL C:\WINNT\system32\atkctrs.dll failed…”). I checked my NIC card settings. Where the internal NIC handled appletalk and various other items, now the router does – but I needed to enable appletalk onto my servers external NIC to allow domain logins. Once appletalk was enabled event id’s went away.”
