I'm using Windows 8.1 Professional 64-bit. Since some time ago, I started to find a "NT Kernel Logger" in "Performance Monitor" --> "Data Collector Sets" --> "Event Trace Sessions", and it's automatically started at boot time. I don't know what's causing that. If I look at another Windows 8.1 Professional computer, it's not there.
The result is that I can't use the NT Kernel event trace data collector in my data collector sets. Any data collector set that uses the NT Kernel event trace data collector (e.g. a data collector set created out of the "System Performance" template) would fail to start automatically.
How do I find out what is causing the NT Kernel Logger to be automatically started? And how do I fix that? I have tried stopping and removing it from "Data Collector Sets" --> "Event Trace Sessions", but it comes right back after reboot.
