Windows low on registry space error message

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

I have a Dell Presario laptop and specifications are Win XP Pro (SP2), 3 GB RAM, 90 GB HD with Dual 3 GHz Xeons . The Antivirus software has been replaced recently because the older version does not provide enough security. However, after the substitution, following error message appears when the laptop restarts.

If I choose OK, the system will continue to work. The system file name is C:WindowsSystem32Config and the size is 10.3 MB.

This laptop is new, a few software is installed. However, if reboot the laptop, this message does not appear again. Is this message a false notification so that we can just ignore it?




“The system has reached the maximum size allowed for the system part of the registry. Additional storage will be ignored"

Open C:WindowsSystem32Config in Windows Explorer 
and open Tools>Folder Options>View.
Confirm that hidden files, file extensions for known types and system files are set to shown.
Then choose ‘Details’ and report back here the size of System file.
Currently that System file on my computer is just over 7MB and warning messages never appear.
In fact, one MSDN article is found and says that error message is called ERROR_REGISTRY_QUOTA_LIMIT.
However further explanation e.g. how to fix this and what caused the message is not found.
If System file is very large, then Registry Cleaner program is required to fix this
or there maybe something else involved or that error message is erroneous
