I thought I would post this just in case anyone else runs up against it. I had one server where all the monitor sets were showing "counter not responding"

Tried everything under the sun. Went to the system, performance monitor worked. But, the counters never got created.

Finally checked the Agent log and found "ERROR: execFile() will not run C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe because it is not a valid executable."

I searched for cmd.exe to verify that the cmd.exe file referenced was the proper size and date. Left it at that.

No luck still.

Finally today I copied over another cmd.exe from a differant directory that was the same size and date. And , now things are being created and reporting in.
