Multiple Perflib error in VMware

Here is the problem:

Checking through the errors logs today on my server I got the shock of my life! It seems about every three seconds I get a Perflib error in VMware. (over 120,000 errors in 7 days)

Windows cannot load extensible counter DLL Vmware, the first DWORD in data section is the Windows error code.

The problem is I'm sure this is causing the network lag I have been having lately. The Vmware hosts windows server2003 and contains a business related application that had to be installed separate from the main SBS server 2003 because of sql (the business related application is using Oracle).

I have a very good network that moves all data through the server, running DHCP, file/print sharing, sql, AD, DC etc.

I have had no problem until I installed this VMware. I will explain

We needed to install a new business related application, The tech's from this company had me install Vmware from MS (the latest). It turned out that this version (the new one) wouldn't fit there needs, so they installed an older version (i'm thinking 1.0.5), and they say I should NOT upgrade.

So now I'm in a bind, I cant upgrade, so if microsoft fixed this error in VMware r2 I'm screwed. Does anybody have any answers?

Hmm, I dont think that will work, my error is totally different and doesnt mention a service at all..

The problem seemed to have stopped itself after the registry fix a few days ago. Thanks
