    CBD--

    What were you doing when this happened, and can you look in Event Viewer and see if you have an error number--because although processor performance object is findable, the error isn't easily found. This doesn't help us for this error, but is what comes up when you search "processor performance object":

    Processor Object

    Processor Bottlenecks

    Re: What is this error (WinXP Pro)

    I installed the new System Mechanic 4.0. Everything woks fine except a couple of Tabs. If I hit eather of these tabs a error window comes up and they just keep coming one after another on top of each other: Unable to locate the " Processor" performance object. They pop up like the heart beat of the process in task manager. Even though everything still works within that tab, they still keep coming.

    I also have Version 4 installed but haven't explored it very much to date. Gimme a specific tab to check and we'll see if I get the same problem as you. Looks like you may have found a glitch in System Mechanic innards, rather than an OS problem.

    I searched Iolo's KB and came up with zip. You might try calling them 1-877-239-4656 (8A-5P Pacific) and have sales patch you to customer service or tech support and see what they say--also if there are any updates you might add them.

    At Optimize Click on Defragment Memory or At Maintain, Click Utility Bar and Check Enable Utility Bar. Eather one of those.

    They will work but I still get the Error Window one after another.

    Cowboy,

    I saw your post and tried out my version of SM 4. It is doing the same thing as yours. Searching through the IOLO site showed nothing.

    So I cranked in a message to their support group and got a support ticket number from them. They promise an answer in max 48 hours, so I'll see what they say and post back, hopefully, with an answer.

    I've been using version 3x for a long time and haven't had ANY problems. I think V4 might need a little debugging. IOLO has been very responsive to things like this, so lets see what comes of it.

    Re: What is this error (WinXP Pro)

    Thanks Viking. Let me know what they say. I also had been using SM 3.8 for a long time with no problems, and I just had to have 4.0 <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39> Oh well, hopefully it's just a little bug and they will have a fix for it because I like the new 4.0 version, minus the errors that is.

    Re: What is this error (WinXP Pro)

    Hey Hoss! When I ran just now, I got a message that there is an update available, so I let it do its thing. I was updated to 4.0b and I don't get any errors by using either of the choices you mentioned. Maybe there was a "bug" and they've found it. Are you at 4.0b?

    Re: What is this error (WinXP Pro)

    I'm using 4.0b and I checked for updates and there was none, I had the latest. I am wondering if those two options have a dependency on something I have turned off in WinXP Services or something?

    Re: What is this error (WinXP Pro)

    OK guys I found the fix. 1st off, I used a tweek at one time that Disabled Performance Counters. So go into Regedit:
    Click to select the following key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServices

    Select Find from the Edit menu.
    In the Find What field, type Disable Performance Counters.
    Click Find Next. This will locate a Performance key that may have this Registry value set to 1.
    If the Registry value is set to 1, set the value to 0 or delete the Registry value.
    Press F3 to find the next occurrence of this Registry value.
    Repeat the previous two steps until there are no Performance keys that have the Disable Performance Counters value set to 1
    Restart Windows and it's fixed.

    Re: What is this error (WinXP Pro)

    Way to go, Cowboy,

    That did it for me too. How many keys did you find? I think I had at LEAST 24, maybe more ! Stopped counting.

    It will be interesting to see what Iolo comes up with in answer to my support post to them. I'll post back with the SM answer.

    Good Job. <img src=/S/bravo.gif border=0 alt=bravo width=16 height=30>

    I only had 3 or 4 that was set at the 1 value, the rest was enabled with the 0 value.
