    Hey All,

    I seem to get alot of these Warnings in my Event Log and was wondering if you guys had anything similiar and possibly know a solution. It's on both my laptop and desktop if I may add.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Yes I get that a lot on all systems now, it didn’t start until after I installed SP2. Microsoft claims in most cases its Antivirus software that causes this (not releasing the registry) at shutdown or logoff.

    Microsoft has a tool to correct the problem and unload the user profile.

    UPHClean is what its called. You can read about and download it Here


    I haven’t used it yet but friends have gotten sick of that in the event viewer and installed this tool and not looked back.

    You can read what it will do Here

    Although annoying, it is safe to ignore. Or you can use the tool mentioned above.

    Yeah, I agree it's both annoying and safe to ignore. SP2 has been getting bad press lately, which is a shame. I have run that tool on a few computers, where people who stare at the event log all day are complaining, other than that I leave it alone.
