Perflib sharing violation

I'm starting to see more often the following error message in the backup log on various Win2K workstations. These are from three different computers.

 

 

 

"C:\WINNT\system32\Perflib_Perfdata_2ac.dat": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

 

"C:\WINNT\system32\Perflib_Perfdata_2f4.dat": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

 

"C:\WINNT\system32\Perflib_Perfdata_304.dat": can't read, error -1020 (sharing violation)

 

 

 

These computers are logged out with nothing running. The path and first part of the filename are always the same. Only the very last part, after the last underscore, changes.

Hope this helps
