Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

I believe the steps we took on our servers when we had this issue was the following:

1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
2. At the command prompt type the following commands (and press ENTER after each command line):
UNLODCTR <counter>.INI
LODCTR <counter>.INI

The <counter> stands for the specific dll name that is not found and listed in the error logs....

Wow, thanks for the quick response, but it's not one of those, I've already checked them. The actual error message I get is The Open Procedure for service "NwlnkNb" in DLL "C:\WINNT\system32\perfctrs.dll" failed.  Performance data for this service will not be available. Status code  returned is data DWORD 0.

also, have you updated to at least SP3 on W2k yet?
Yes, the missing performance counters. The "Disable Performance Counters" registry entry described in the article usually works for me; simply replace the "RemoteAccess" registry key mentioned in the article with the service that's bugging you.

Thanks a lot. Your second idea pointed us in the right direction. Removed the counter from performance logging and re-added it successfully. Seems to have worked perfectly, much appreciated!
glad to have been able to have helped.... these are the annoying type of errors too cause they can really begin to fill up a log file if you have multiple counters getting the 1008 error...
