Solution 1:

A possible solution might be to rebuild the performance counter via lodctr (run inside a "run as admin" CMD):

lodctr /R

If this caused the error message:

Error: Unable to rebuild performance counter setting from system backup store, error code is 2

run it a 2nd time until it shows:

Info: Successfully rebuilt performance counter setting from system backup store

Solution 2:

Another possible solution might be to check the page file (it shouldn´t be fully disabled) on the affected server and re-adjust that if needed.
