On a Windows 8.1 laptop I've started getting (about once per week) clusters of 6-12 NTFS Error 134: "The transaction resource manager on volume C: encountered an error during recovery. The resource manager will continue recovery." It does not happen only when restarting, and seems unconnected to any particular activity. The computer functions normally, with no other signs of trouble.
Here's what I've tried:
- Chkdsk /r (no errors)
- sfc /scannow (no errors)
- fsutil resource setautoreset true c:\
- There are no files in the %Windir%\System32\SMI\Store\Machine folder (checked for hidden files too)
- There is plenty of hard drive space.
- I ran a third party hard drive checker (HD Tune Pro) that found no errors.

The steps above came from several sources, some of which were directly relevant to the NTFS 134 error, others which were relevant to Transaction Resource Manager errors:
