Perfomance monitor counters not shown correctly

Hi guys,

I recently installed a win 2k3 web server as a virtual machine on MS Virtual Server. The problem is that after completed the installation i went to perfomance to check some things out. Unfortunately, the categories and the counters were showing in numbers instead of normal names. As a result i can't figure out which numbers respondes to which counter. Have you ever seen this problem again? And how may i resolve it?

Thanks in advance.
