WEI - Cannot measure processor performance

I have searched for an answer and followed a few suggestions, but keep getting the same error. Here is the log file:

Here's a couple:
Have you disabled/uninstalled Windows Media Player? WEI won't work without it.

How big is your Page File? My WEI wouldn't work with a Page File smaller than 1GB.

Thanks for the reply. I have not uninstalled WMP (works fine).
Page file is 6142MB.

My first suggestion would be to run the System File Checker

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If no help, this is often cause by an older BIOS version, check to see if your ASUS has a newer version for your MB.

Also, this can be a permissions issue. You can try taking ownership of the C:\windows\Performance\WinSAT folder. Also, check the permissions:

Navigate to C:\windows\Performance\WinSAT

Right click on folder and choose properties

Name:  Properties.jpg
Views: 103
Size:  40.7 KB

On Security tab, click on the advanced tab, and see if your permissions look like mine
