Advanced option to disable certain performance counters?

I'm not familiar enough with the Windows performance counters API to know if this is possible, but it'd be useful to have an advanced setting which could set an allowlist and/or blocklist for performance counters.

The reason for this request is when TrayStatus loads it results in several warning and error events being logged to the Application event log. For at least some (all?) of these events it appears that there's no issue with the performance counters themselves, but due to TrayStatus trying to open counters which are privileged (e.g. Lsa, Server). As such, they always fail and an event is logged.

Interesting! It may just be that we're enumerating all of the available performance counter categories when it starts up to build the list for the custom counters, but we'll put this on the list and see if there's anything we can do.

Thanks!
