Trouble running Performance Monitor. 'Unable to add these counters....

I've attempted to run the Performance Monitor and I get an error message. "unable to add these counters:

\Memory\available MBytes

\Memory%Committed Bytes in use,

\Memory\Cache Faults/sec

\Memory\Cache Faults/sec

\PhysicalDisk(*)%idle Time

\PhysicalDisk(*)\Avg. Disk Queue Length

\Network Interface(*)\Bytes Total/sec

This is a home computer and it's developed some stabile issues and crashes randomly. This is a home built system and I'm trying to determine if the issue is hardware or software related.

    Looking forward to your feedback,
