How to Fix Windows Performance Registry Corruption
Well I'm still testing InstallShield installers today and thought I'd add another interesting and cryptic issue to the blog that I saw when an uninstaller removes performance counters (or fails to for that matter). The error described below is not InstallShield's fault, but instead corruption in the Performance Counter Registry that is encountered during an uninstall. However, since it occurs on uninstall it will certainly bubble up in you related installer logs. As I posted last night, the best way to troubleshoot InstallShield errors is to search the Internet; so I hope this post can help someone out.  Below is the complete description and fix that worked for me and a few others:

Corruption of the Windows Performance Registry, possibly due to Windows Server 2003 SP1. See the related thread:
