I am having a problem on a clients Dell SBS 2000 Server that after a recent restart to hopefully fix other performance counter problems the CPU is now maxed completly out by a process called dredger.exe. I know this process aslo has something to do with performance counters. The restart was because I manual rebuilt the performance monitors following this Microsoft article:
The reason for the rebuild was because of other problems with the performance counters on this particular machine. Now it looks like it has caused this problem with the dredger.exe proccess however, the only article that I can find that seems to relate to this problem is the affore mentioned article which I can not actually complete now because the computer is running so slow it won't open up the C:/WINNT/system32 folder.
Any help or ideas as to what might be going on would be greatly appreaciated. Thanks in advance.
