Consuming Windows events with agent v8.4, getting error: EventHandles returned error The parameter is incorrect

Had Elastic agent 8.4 running consuming windows events using the System integration and the ingest stops with this warning showing right before the ingest stops:

I am really keen to know what can be done to debug it further.

Error document:

agent.type: filebeat
agent.version: 8.4.1
data_stream.dataset: elastic_agent.filebeat
data_stream.namespace: windows
data_stream.type: logs
ecs.version: 8.0.0
WinEventLog[] EventHandles returned error The parameter is incorrect. eventlog/wineventlog.go windows

log.file.path: C:\Program Files\Elastic\Agent\data\elastic-agent-8d7885\logs\default\filebeat-20221126-10.ndjson
log.level: warn

Additional messages preceding this event:

"message": "Input 'winlog' failed with: input.go:130: input failed ( The parameter is incorrect."
"message": "Error occured while reading from Windows Event Log '': The parameter is incorrect."

The issue is very intermittent, so I am a bit reluctant to leave the debug running for long periods of time.
