I found somewhere on Technet that kb 960127 might cover this, but I don't find that kb article. Who can find that?

I found this ( http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlsetupandupgrade/thread/c9cb944d-6264-4530-9e00-ee92da3e939f/ ):

================================
Got this one figured out.  The performance counters were corrupted.   You can see this by opening perfmon and noticing a bunch of numbers instead of the actual counters themselves.
In order to fix (or you might want to check before you install), run:
c:\windows\system32\lodctr /R
This will reload the performance counters
=================================

 This worked.
