I searched the knowledgebase and found references to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912399 however, that did nothing for me.

Has anyone seen this before and if so, help...

I do not see anything in the System Log that is related.

Did you grant the Read & Execute permission to the Network Service account on the performance counter ?
If so maybe try reinstalling the monitoring service.

I followed the directions in the microsoft article and that did not work, mainly because I did not have the files or paths referenced.  I did notice two directories in the SQL directory that reference MSSQL$SHAREPOINT and MSSQL$SBSMONITORING, so... I went in there and gave Read and Execute permissions to all the DLL files in Binn directories and the errors have stopped.

Thanks, you pointed me in the right direction.  Appreciate it.
