To avoid a lot of Q & A about your hardware and OS configuration, please click on this link to
Edit System Specs

Filling this out, at least partially, will save a lot of time. Another advantage is when posting a new problem, the person answering can just click the My System Specs link in the bottom of your post. No need to search for the information.

If you have multiple systems just indicate that in the System Specs so that we know why many of the fields are blank.

Searching using these terms:
xperf disk path name: Unknown (0x0)

gets me a DOC file with some mumbo jumbo about path unknown is during system boot when the prefetcher is doing some yadda yadda. Anyway, it should be 3rd in the google results if you want to read it.
