Counter. Remove Instance Method

Public Sub RemoveInstance ()
This counter is read-only, so any instance that is associated with the category cannot be removed.
The instance is not correctly associated with a performance counter.
An error occurred when accessing a system API.
You can remove an instance only for a custom counter. All system counters are read-only, so attempting to remove one of them throws an exception.
To create a performance category instance, specify an
instanceName on the PerformanceCounter constructor. If the category instance specified by
instanceName already exists the new object will reference the existing category instance.
If the value for the InstanceLifetime property is Process and the performance counter category was created with .NET Framework version 1.0 or 1.1, an InvalidOperationException is thrown. Performance counter categories created with earlier versions use global shared memory, and the value for InstanceLifetime must be Global. If the category is not used by applications running on versions 1.0 or 1.1 of the .NET Framework, delete and recreate the category.
