When I attempt a "perfmon /report" I receive the following error message.

" Error:

An error occured while attempting to generate the report.


Access Denied. "


I am logged in as administrator so I am confused as to what is going on.

Thank you.

I added my User account to Performance Monitor Users and Performance Log Users as Microsoft suggested and I receive the following when trying to run "perfmon /report":

Error:

An error occured while attempting to generate the report.


Access Denied.


I am still searching for a solution but hope someone here can help. Again, thanks.

You're logged in as an Administrator, but are you running CMD.exe as an Administrator? Commands such as this one as well as gpupdate /force should fail (in the latter case, it may succeed, but skip some policies which you do not have permission to access / apply) when run from a standard command line instance.

Otherwise, check this out:

I disabled the proxy server setting in chrome and this worked.

Was that a custom proxy server set by you, or you have no idea where it came from?
