Perfmon only showing numbers

I have a Windows 2003 server, and have run into a weird issue with the Performance monitor. Using perfmon if I try to add a counter the "performance object" shows only numbers, as opposed to a component like "processor". Similarly, the sub-menu of selecting counters from a list also only shows numbers.

On the server you will see two empty values from:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows

NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib\009

Both 'Counter' and 'Help' were present, but had no values assigned.

To correct this you need to go to a working server, export this key and import it into the nonworking server.
