“Input string was not in a correct format.” while installing SQL Server 2008

I have re-installed Windows 7 and other applications on my laptop this morning. While installing the SQL Server 2008, I have got the following error message.

I have selected all  the features including SSRS and SSIS, and the event log was showing like below.

After spending few minutes on the web, I realized the problem with my performance counters and I wanted to rebuild it on my laptop. Here is the steps to rebuild the performance counters!

Step 1: Open the command prompt (Make sure to Run As Administrator otherwise you will get an error :))

Step 2: Enter the “LODCTR /R” command and hit Enter key

You will be getting the following success message!

That’s all, try to install the SQL Server again, No problem at all!

Thanks /R
