Re: NScontrol service registration fails for no reason aaargh...
I haven't experienced this problem myself but I suspect that at a
minimum you'll fill your application log (event viewer) with events
indicating that the perf counters were not accessible.
Can you rebuild the corrupted counters? Seems like I remember reading
an MSDN article a while back that outlined some steps for doing that.
I don't know if it works or not.
