can you not start it at startup? – soandos Jun 28 '11 at 20:44
No you can only specify a time (schedule) to start it – nobody Jun 28 '11 at 20:48
The answer to this problem is to use logman start "custom policy" as a startup script for Scheduled Tasks/Task Scheduler – nobody Jun 28 '11 at 22:08

Add a shortcut to perfmon.exe in the StartUp menu. It has not the exact behaviour as clicking performance in taskmgr.exe but maybe you'll find it useful enough.
