|I had a look around and nowhere can I find that XP has a registry size limit, there are no registry entries for RSl in my versions of XP Home and Pro. UPH mentioned in response #2 seems to be a cure for a profile unload problem, or potential problem, where resources are not released at logoff not a problem with RSL (Win 2k etc but not XP).|
The UPH Overview states:
The User Profile Hive Cleanup service helps to ensure user sessions are completely terminated when a user logs off. System processes and applications occasionally maintain connections to registry keys in the user profile after a user logs off. In those cases the user session is prevented from completely ending.
I take this to mean that the user profile hives are released in order for the user logoff to complete not that UPH is some magical registry "cleaner" which will remove registry entries, a very dangerous practice at the best of times.
Further comments appreciated. Where are the big guns when we really need them?
