Event ID 1008 dnsperf.dll Issues

I got a call from a client, stating that they could not send e-mail or reach their own website, but could reach every other website needed. External people from their network could reach the site in question.

From those descriptions, figured it was a DNS issue right off the bat. So when I got there, I connected to my home machine, verified sites were still up, and got IP addresses for the two sites, main and the website, mail.domain.com

The IP for mail.domain.com worked, but the IP I would get from their main site wasn't working, a bit odd.

Anyways, after further investigation, the server had an error in the Event Viewer (love that utility) as follows:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Perflib
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1008
Date: 4/27/2001
Time: 8:06:55 PM
User: N/A
The Open Procedure for service "DNS" in DLL "C:\WINNT\system32\dnsperf.dll" failed. Performance data for this service will not be available. Status code returned is data DWORD 0.
The fix, found here, worked instantly. My question, since this server is 2000 with SP4, is how did it happen? I can't seem to find any root causes for it, haven't had this problem before as I have administered this server for the past year, and want to know if I can prevent it going forward. This client pays me hourly, and would like the same freedom :)

Anyone seen this before, or know what causes it? TIA :)

That is what I figured, but I thought it was VERY strange that the only sites that were unreachable were sites that are related to the company.

The sites are NOT hosted locally, and aren't even the same name as the domain. Kind of odd, I guess I'll just keep an eye on it going forward :(
