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???

    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 the error is gone.

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