How Do I Increase Registry Space

Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -

My computer is displaying the following error message frequently.

Windows: Low On Registry Space

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

According to my understanding I need to increase the registry space in primary drive where my Windows XP Professional has been installed, but I don’t know how doing this.

It is highly requested to please help me in connection with the above concern.

Thanking you in advance.

How Do I Increase Registry Space


The registry is such type of data repository which has limited size in Microsoft Operating Systems but you can increase the size limit when your running out registry space.

Just go to the properties of ‘My Computer’ by right clicking on that, and go to ‘Advanced Tab’. Select ‘Performance Options’ then Change.

Observe ‘registry size’ area in the bottom of your current window and check current vc maximum. If they are closed, get increment to a bigger number.

If you are increasing like 22MB to 250MB (size significantly), you may have to increase the paging file size also.

Finally, restart your computer to support the larger registry space and self-setting of the operating system.
