Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Internet Information Services 5.0.
Performance Monitor is a graphical tool for measuring the performance of your own computer or of other computers on a network.

On each computer, you can view the behavior of objects such as processors, memory, cache, threads, and processes. Each of these objects has an associated set of counters that provide information about device usage, queue lengths, and delays, along with information used for measuring throughput and internal congestion. Performance Monitor provides charting, alerting, and reporting capabilities that reflect current activity along with ongoing logging.

You can also open log files at a later time for browsing and charting as if they were reflecting current activity. The Performance Monitor counter component collects and logs performance information and allows users with low privileges to use it.
