Hi Sean, 

It seems very strange that you’d get a different number of processes with each run. Coupled with the IOError and the path being /mnt/hgfs (VMware host to guest), I would try to first rule out something weird with VMware Tools data transfer. Can you copy the memory dump into your virtual machine and run Volatility against the local file?
