My WMI meters and perfmon can't monitor other computers.

Do the following:

Start -> Run -> secpol.msc

Navigate to:
Local Policies : Security Options

In there look for:

Network Access: Sharing and security model for local accounts.

Chances are that's set to Guest Only. Set it to "Classic - local users authenticate as themselves" and you should be back in business!
