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
