I have a problem in my office network that is driving me crazy. We use Win 2000 computers, and since a few days ago, in the event viewer receive the error: "Error : Perfnet Unable to open the Server service. Server performance data will not be returned. Error code returned is in data DWORD 0."

What is happening is that the app "PCAnywhere" and other app "Symposium" to check how many calls we have. If any of this are working on one of the PCs, I have to format and reinstall again. I make no changes, but I get the same error. Do you have any idea what is this? Thank you for your help.

Sounds like Performance Monitor cannot access the Server service. This can occur if the server service isn't running, or if it doesn't have permission to run.
