Workaround
To temporarily work around this problem, you can choose to disable handle signing. To do this, set the HandleSigningEnabled parameter to 0 (zero) as described in Performance Tuning Guidelines for Windows Server 2012 R2.

Note This is a temporary workaround and not a recommended best practice because it has potential security implications.
Status
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
