I have a Dell 4600 PC. When I am burning DVDs after about 3 DVDs created my system will freeze. This requires a hard shutdown to restore my system. I read one forum that suggests it could be a RAM issue and another suggests it could be a temperature issue. I checked my Event Viewer and every time this has occured I get two errorswith source LoadPerf Event 3011 & 3012.

Event Error Source LoadPerf 3011 says:
Unloading the performance counter strings for service WmiApRpl (WmiApRpl) failed. The Error code is the first DWORD in Data section.

Event Error Source LoadPerf 3012 says:
The performance strings in the Performance registry value is corrupted when process Performance extension counter provider. BaseIndex value from Performance registry is the first DWORD in Data section, LastCounter value is the second DWORD in Data section, and LastHelp value is the third DWORD in Data section.

My question is this - does anyone know what causes these errors and what I can do to fix the issue?
I know a hard shutdown of the PC is not the best thing to do. Because I have had to do a few (not too many) - is there something I should do to ensure my PC doesnt get messed up by these hard shuts?
