PhysicalDisk counters missing from Performance Monitor

I have a Win2k SP4 Server that has decided that the PhyscalDisk counters in PerfMon are no longer important.  I know that they used to be there, because I had a saved PerfMon on my desktop with those counters in there.

I tried replacing perfdisk.dll from a 2000 Server SP4, but that did not seem to help.

Exctrlst.exe reports that the PerfDisk Counters are enabled.  

When I run diskperf, it reports this:

Both Logical and Physical Disk Performance counters on this system
         are currently set to start at boot.


Any ideas?

Did you install any other HD monitoring software, such as Dell Openmanage or your server manufacturer's equivalent?  These programs have taken away both physical and logical counters for us on multiple servers.

Nope... the server has a promise raid controller in it, but I have not done anything with the software in some time (at least longer than the counters were last working).

have you run
diskperf.exe -y
on this machine?

might even be worth turning it off with the -n switch, then turning it on again with -y

I did run diskperf -y

I'll try turning it off and then back on.

Your answers didn't really help, but I do apprecate the effort.  Points to both of you.
