Unresolved Recurring Event ID 1008 and I need assistance in applying steps in the posted solution

I have viewed a posted solution for an issue with search criteria: Unresolved Recurring Event ID 1008
However, I need some assistance in understanding the steps I need to follow.
For example, I don't understand what is the - worker process identity and How do I perform an iisreset (step 8 in solution).
Also, do I run the net commands from a command prompt?

Yes, now that makes more sense... you came to the question with a preconceived solution which is not necessarily the right thing for your problem.

Please see this page regarding the error you are seeing:  http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=1008&eventno=70&source=Perflib&phase=1

You'll note that one person resolved this by installing "the Extensible Performance Counter List tool from Microsoft, and I disabled the performance counters for "ASP.NET_2.0.50727".

Well, first lets determine if you in fact need to follow these steps.  Do you have .Net 2.0 installed and do you require it for any reason?

Yes, I do have .NET 2.0 installed and I require it for an application (EDI Enterprise).

Okay, just so we're on the same page, I'm assuming that you are referring to http:Q_21692349.html

Steps 1, 2 & 8 are commands to run from the Command Prompt.

The worker process identity is a value that you need to determine by opening your Task Manager (right click on the task bar and select Task Manager) and viewing the specific process for the EDI Enterprise application.  On that line there is a name which will be in the User Name column which is probably something like "LOCAL SERVICE", "NETWORK SERVICE" or some user account.  This is what you need to use for the command line entry in Step 2.

I have checked processors in task manager and I can only see one process that may relate to EDI enterprise.
EDI makes use of SQL and there is an entry for this (application - sqlmangr.exe, username - administrator).
So do I use administrator for the command line in step 2?
Is it harmful to OS if I make a mistake ie. enter wrong username in command?
Please explain, how to perform iireset (step 8)

No, the Worker Process is one of the w3wp.exe processes that are running or it could be called aspnet_wp.exe.  Most likely you have more than one running and figuring out which one is a bit tricky:  http://weblogs.asp.net/owscott/archive/2004/09/21/232628.aspx

If you don't see them, make sure that the "Show processes from all users box is checked".

Then, if you can't figure out which one it is. You'll have to do it by process of elimination -- stop each process, one at a time, and then test to see if your application still works after stopping each one.

You would NOT hurt anything by entering the wrong name on the command... all that command does is to add that user to the IIS_WPG Group in Active Directory.  You can actually do this through AD Users & Computers if you wanted.

In task manager I can only see W3prefch.exe ad W3proxy.exe there is no aspnet_wp.exe
I can't find a specific process for the EDI Enterprise application that you have refered to previously
I'm a little confused as to what EDI Enterprise has to do with the event log filling up, I thought it's got to do with .NET
I still don't know what is the worker process identy that I should use in command.

When you look at the task manager, you need to check the "show processes from all users" box at the bottom of the window.

When did the topic of the event log filling up come up in any of this conversation?

Sorry, it seems I have made it difficult for you to help me.
To get things clear: I am having a problem where the app event log is filling up.
A new Event 1008 occurs once every 5 seconds or so. Here are the event properties:

The Open Procedure for service "ASP.NET" in DLL "C:\WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_perf.dll" failed.  Performance data for this service will not be available. Status code  returned is data DWORD 0.

I am using ISA. I want to try and clear the URL cache (as suggested in http:Q_21692349.html).
How do I clear the URL cache? Can I do this while system is 'live' - will this affect logged on users?

Note: I have selected show processes from all users.
