    This event ID warning happens when the disk performance counter is
    disabled and you have a program trying to collect performance data on
    the disk. You might have a tool or program that is set to run at this
    particular time and it tries to gather data as part of its routine. To
    fix this enable the disk counter, at a Command Prompt issue the
    following command:

    diskperf -y

    See:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;296187
    Application Log Events Generated When You Start Performance Counter Query
    (Written for Windows 2000 but also applies to Windows XP)

    I don't think however that this event in particular has anything to do
    with your not being able to access the internet at that time, but maybe
    something else that the underlying program or tool is doing might be
    causing other problems.

    @John John MVP
    The dos command that you gave me does not seem to work on this computer I
    get a message that says:-
    diskperf-y is not recognised as an internal or external command operable
    program or batch file. Any other sugestions? I went into the regestry direct
    and changed the default value from (preferance not set) to 1is this correct?
    i am still getting the "Warnining" in event viewer.

    "-y" is a switch and needs to be separated by a space. So, as suggested
    by John John - MVP, type this command:

    diskperf -y

    Maybe just a typo on your part but you need to space the command from
    its switches. Diskperf is the command and -y is the switch, make sure
    that there is a space between them:

    diskperf -y

    Any other sugestions? I went into the regestry direct

    You mean the 'Disable Performance Counters' value? If you set it to 1
    the counter is disabled, if you want to enable it set the value to 0 or
    delete the value altogether.
