error on start-up

Now that I'm certified, I don't know s**t. I'm getting an error on the logging on to an account part of startup. It says a registry file could not be loaded and was recovered from a backup/copy. Here's the actual error from the event viewer:

"...Windows cannot unload your registry file. The memory used by the registry has not been freed. This is often caused by services running as a user account, try configuring the services to run in either the LocalService or NetworkService account. "

Help.....what do I need to change?

    You can try downloading a utility called "Regclean". What that does is clean up your registry of any junk that's in there. I find that this little utility can fix some registry errors. What O/S are you running???

    P.S.
    Just do a google search for "Regclean download" and you should find it with no problem.

    Sorry, I spaced it. Am running WinXP Pro.

    I think I got it taken care of. Ran the sfc and it prompted me to insert the WinXP disk.....now the error is gone.

    Thanks for the info...will check out that program you mentioned.
