Perfmon metrics on Windows

Hi there, we started using metricbeat for monitoring our windows machines including MSMQ perfmon counters. When using metricbeat 7.6.2 it starts reading them just fine, but after an hour or so it compains that it cannot read counters while they are perfectly readbale using powershell. IF I restart metricbeat service in starts to read them again and then fails. After reading this topic Could not get Windows Performance Counters since Metricbeats 7.3.0
I decided to give 7.2.1 a try and it works flawlessly for more then 24 hours.
Our OS is Windows Server 2012 R2 and metriebeat version is 7.6.2
COnfig looks like this:

- module: system
  - cpu
  - memory
  - network
  - filesystem
  - diskio
  - process
  enabled: true
  period: 600s
  cpu.metrics:  ["percentages", "normalized_percentages"]
  core.metrics: ["percentages"]
- module: windows
  metricsets: [perfmon]
  period: 600s
  perfmon.ignore_non_existent_counters: true
  perfmon.group_measurements_by_instance: true
    - instance_label:
      measurement_label: msmq.queue.size
      query: \MSMQ Queue(*)\Messages in Queue

Hi, I not tested the Metricbeat version 7.6.2 yet. For me the versions 7.6.0 and 7.6.1 are running fine in OS Windows Server 2012R2 and Windows Server 2016. But I configure the performance counter in the modules.d\windows.yml file. May be you try this. May be it helps.
