I keep getting this warning in my applications event log.
Can someone explain to me what it is and how I can fix it?

Event Type: Warning
Event Source: Userenv
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1517
Date: 4/26/2007
Time: 10:57:07 AM
User: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Computer: MAIN
Description:
Windows saved user MAIN\Admin registry while an application or service was still using the registry during log off. The memory used by the user's registry has not been freed. The registry will be unloaded when it is no longer in use.

This is often caused by services running as a user account, try configuring the services to run in either the LocalService or NetworkService account.

Thanks!!

You should be able to fix it with the utility to download here...

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

If that doesn't work, see below.

According to Microsoft, this happens when services run in a user account instead of LocalService or NetworkService.

Make sure you "Default User" account is listed also. Sometimes admins delete accounts and they delete this account. (Right-click Start, hit Explore, and verify it is there.)

Make sure you add SYSTEM, LocalService and NetworkService and grant them full control on the folder. Make sure the folders under this folder receive the same rights.

I get this error on a lot of XP systems - it has to do (as jwinathome says) with a service that's running as a user account. I haven't figured out which program it is, but it's gotta be a common one with the number of errors that I've seen.

At times the User Profile Hive Cleanup Service will fix it, but at times it won't. I haven't seen this error cause any significant problems, although it does have the potential to corrupt your registry (and can, therefore, cause problems with starting Windows).

I'd be interested to know the results of your troubleshooting!

Good luck!

I will try that. I also keep having problems with websites-I can usually access them, but when it comes to downloading or uploading something, it freezes up. Could that be related to my current problem?

I am also getting this warning in application event log:
Event Type: Warning
Event Source: WinMgmt
Event Category: None
Event ID: 63
Date: 4/26/2007
Time: 6:26:32 AM
User: MAIN\Admin
Computer: MAIN
Description:
A provider, OffProv11, has been registered in the WMI namespace, Root\MSAPPS11, to use the LocalSystem account. This account is privileged and the provider may cause a security violation if it does not correctly impersonate user requests.

Thanks for all your help!

Here is a page devoted to that error...

I don't believe it would be causing a conflict, but perhaps someone with a better knowledge may say differently.

In general, Warnings are just that - warnings that something isn't quite right, but it won't cause an error condition to pop up on the system. Seen in conjunction with Errors, warnings may give you valuable clues to locating the cause of the Error.
