Details
Product: Windows Operating System
Event ID: 61
Source: WinMgmt
Version: 5.2
Symbolic Name: WBEM_MC_ADAP_PERFLIB_FUNCTION_TIMEOUT
Message: WMI ADAP was unable to process the %1 performance library due to a time violation in the %2 function
   
Explanation

Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) could not process the performance library. If this event is logged when the computer restarted. This may be a temporary error.

For other instances, the performance counter registries might be corrupt.

   
User Action

If this error occurs when the computer restarts, no user action is required.

If this error continues to occur, identify the performance counter registry that leads to the corrupted registry entries, and then restore the registry to a previous version of PerfStringBackup.ini in the %SystemRoot\System32 folder.

The %SystemRoot%\System32 folder will have several PerfStringBackup*.ini files that represent the snapshots taken as more performance counters were added to the system.

To restore to the previous snapshot, at the command prompt, type
Lodctr /r:PerfStringBackupXXX.ini

If this does not work, re-try with an older PerfStringBackupxxx.ini file.

After you determine which file works, perform a text file difference between successive PerfStringBackupxxx.ini files to identify which counters need to be re-installed. When you determine which counters need to be reinstalled, re-install the program.
