I checked out the latest etl with event viewer. Personally I see nothing that would cause this parameter error. There is a repeated error that was eliminated by setting the RPC Locator service to automatic; if I zip up the etls and upload them would you please look over them. Thanks in advance.
Due to no reply I am assuming your found little if anything of interest in the etl files.
For my case at least here is what solved the problem. I moved the c:\windows\recovery folder to a flash drive and everything worked perfectly after that. Somehow the contents of that folder was "confusing" the computer.
Thanks for your time. Hopefully this will help someone else.
