WinXP SP2 on a laptop.
 
C:\>pslist

pslist v1.28 - Sysinternals PsList
Processor performance object not found on P4
Run Exctrlst from the Windows Resource Kit to repair the performance counters.

The curious thing about this error is that perfmon.msc runs fine on this machine, as well as ProcExplorer, editing the columns to provide additional performance counters.
 
I've seen the discussion about 
lodctr.exe /r %windir%\system32\PerfStringBackup.ini
 
The date on this file is yesterday, after applying MS SQLServer SP2 maintenance (manually, because MS Update does not work).
 
Why is pslist the only program to fail?   Perhaps this is a clue:
 
C:\>lodctr.exe /r %windir%\system32\PerfStringBackup.ini
Error in file: C:\WINDOWS\system32\PerfStringBackup.ini.
drivername parameter was not found in the [info] section of the file
There is no [info] section in this file.  How does one recover from errors like this?
 
Like others in the thread, I want to do some logging of process behaviour over time.   I'm also looking at tasklist. 
 
Ideally, I would like to customize procexp.exe for the columns/frequency I need, and run that from the command line (not a gui).

I am having the same error. Is there a solution?
Plus there is no "Exctrlst" in my XP or 2k3 ResKit....
