Event viewer notice



Just dicovered the "Event viewer option". I wonder whether
I should do something about one of the warning and if so,
what? this is the text:(I am not able to use the MS link
mentioned in the warning):

Event Type: Warning
Event Source: WinMgmt
Event Category: None
Event ID: 63
Date: 9/3/2004
Time: 2:01:49 PM
User: ........

A provider, HiPerfCooker_v1, has been registered in the
WMI namespace, Root\WMI, to use the LocalSystem account.
This account is privileged and the provider may cause a
security violation if it does not correctly impersonate
user requests.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at

Any idea? THANKS !

Either Emeril Lagasse has planted spyware on your computer, or the following
article from MSDN (Microsoft Developers Network) applies:
"Cooked Counter Provider

The Cooked Counter provider is a high-performance provider that provides
calculated ("cooked") counter data, such as the percentage of time a disk
spends writing data. The difference between this provider and the
Performance Counter provider is that the Performance Counter provider
supplies raw data and the Cooked Counter provider supplies performance data
that appears exactly as in System Monitor. The Win32Provider instance name
is "HiPerfCooker_v1".

Clear as mud? Bottom line: Internal Windows housekeeping - nothing to worry


Ted, you had me laugh so much!! Thanks for the info. I
feel better. It shows how all these warning are worded in
incomprehensible language for the average user. Why do
they show this as a Warning with a big exclamation point,
as if something needed to be done!!! Again, thank you.

Glad I could help. Microsoft has a language all its own. Even their press
releases can be incomprehensible. On the other hand, warnings like the one
you came across were not intended to be understood by mere mortals like us.
