Hello guys, I am @ work attempting to help a user through the phone. This is the error that comes up 'the endpoint format is invalid'.

The reason I am posting is because I have NEVER encountered this error. Very little info found on the web. I have managed the user to access safe mode with networking and connect via TeamViewer but I have found nothing. I have tried chkdsk(does not seem to perform it), system restore(also fails), but that error keeps coming up. Has anyone here dealt with such problem?

Note: User is accross our border(Mexico) so it's not as easy as going over to check it out : (

After three hours guys I was finally able to resolve it here are the steps...

"1.Log on by using an account that has administrative credentials.
2.Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
3.In Registry Editor, locate and then click the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

4.On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD value.
5.Type SystemPages, and then press ENTER.
6.On the Edit menu, click Modify.
7.Click Decimal, type 31000, and then click OK.
8.Quit Registry Editor."
