Use the following steps to enable remote monitoring:
  • Open Windows Explorer on the target Windows XP computer.
  • Select Tools -> Folder Options.
  • Click the View tab.
  • Clear the Use Simple File Sharing check box, and click OK.
  • Verify privileges on the target Windows XP computer as described in Microsoft Knowledge Base article# Q300702.

  • %SystemRoot%/System32/Perfc009.dat
  • %SystemRoot%/System32/Perfh009.dat
You must have at least READ access to the following registry keys on the remote computer:
