No physical/logical disk counter

I am trying to configure a counter in perfmon, but there is no option for physicaldisk or logicaldisk.  I tried running diskperf.exe -n, then diskperf.exe -y , but no luck.  Any help?

To add counters to a log
Using the Windows interface

Open Performance.
Double-click Performance Logs and Alerts, and then click Counter Logs.
In the details pane, double-click the log you want to modify.
On the General tab, click Add Counters. For each counter or group of counters that you want to add to the log, perform the following steps:
To log counters from the computer on which the Performance Logs and Alerts service will run, click Use local computer counters.
Or, to log counters from a specific computer regardless of where the service is run, click Select counters from computer and specify the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) name, such as \\MyLogServer, of the computer you want to monitor.

In Performance object, select an object to monitor.
In Select counters from list, click one or more counters to monitor.
To monitor all instances of the selected counters, click All Instances. (Binary logs can include instances that are not available at log startup, but which subsequently become available.)
Or, to monitor particular instances of the selected counters, click Select Instances From List, and then click an instance or instances to monitor.

Click Add.
 Notes

To open Performance, click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Performance.
When creating a monitoring console for export, be sure to select Use local computer counters. Otherwise, counter logs will obtain data from the computer named in the text box regardless of where the console file is installed.
For a description of a counter, click the counter in Performance counters and then click Explain.

try to re-register the perfmon application using regsvr32 aspperfc.dll
you may also need to re-register the pdh.dll as well because it is a helper dll.
