Event Viewer shows the following warnings (yellow triangle!)
"Source: Userenv
Windows saved user YOUR----------(my computername)\Owner registry while an application or service was still using the registry during log off. This is often caused by services running as a user account. try configuring the services to run in either the Local Service or Network Service account".
Source: WinMgmt
A provider, OffProv. has been registered in the WMI name space. Root\MSAPPS, but did not specify the HostingModel property. This provider will be run using the LocalSystem account. This account is privileged and the provider may cause a security violation if it does not correctly impersonate user requests. Ensure that the provider has been reviewed for security behavior and update the HostingModel property of the provider registration to an account with the least privileges possible for the required functionality".

I have no idea what those messages mean, and would appreciate any help and advice what if any significance they may have.

It's nothing. This event gets logged when a program is accessing the registry when you log off. There's nothing wrong with your computer or anything. Check out the article...

As _Peter_ says, it's not a problem as long as your system is running properly. Basically a "Warning" is Windows' way of saying "a problem was found, but Windows fixed it"

It appears (IMO) to be an issue with MS Office and it's WBEM component and it needs WMI in order to work.

If this is the case, a repair or uninstall/reinstall of MS Office (with all of it's updates) may make the problem go away.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
