Re: XP performance monitor disabled
Their software may have it's own connection monitor? Changing service packs and reinstalling Windows wouldn't be needed. You may be able to refresh the taskmanager with the steps seen in the help files in the taskmanager windows or isolate the process People PC uses that interferes in order to disable that. That usually requires a registry edit or contact them about this directly.
