Cause

Sometimes  during cdm probe on windows environment appears max restart error

The log entries indicate a problem with the perfmon counters which are used by the cdm probe. 
 

Environment

Resolution

To resolve, follow the instructions in this Microsoft post to rebuild your performance counters.

%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\lodctr /R

Additional Information

When you use the System Monitor tool, some counters may be missing or do not contain counter data. The base set of performance counter libraries may become corrupted and may need to be rebuilt. Additionally, you may need to rebuild any custom (.NET Framework application created) counters or any extensible counters.
