    Windows saved user BANZIA\banzia registry while an application or service was still using the registry during log off. The memory used by the user's registry has not been freed. The registry will be unloaded when it is no longer in use.

    This is often caused by services running as a user account, try configuring the services to run in either the LocalService or NetworkService account.

    The TrueVector one is to do with ZoneAlarm. Have you noticed anything wrong with it? Looks like its trying to display an error message but can't find the message to display. Looks like you might have to reinstall ZoneAlarm to get rid of this.

    Ipsec is to do with VPNs so unless you are running one I would disable the service from starting automatically with Windows.

    The nVidia one is to do with your graphic card drivers. Are you noticing any errors with that?

    There will always be some errors or warnings in the logs. A lot of the time they are one-offs and if the system doesn't have a problem they can relatively safely be ignored.

    Hi Nick, Thanks for replying, I was wondering if you would see the post. I have not noticed anything with regard ZoneAlarm, appart from the usual pop ups ect....

    Not sure what you mean by vpns , could you explain, and how to disable ect....

    I know what your saying with regard to the error messages ect.... but just to be sure I thought I should ask. I would also like to view TechGuys archive on xp, how , where can I find it..

    Thanks again...

    If you haven't noticed anything unusual you can probably leave it (if it ain't broke...) but you would want to check that its still protecting you properly. Go to this site http://grc.com/intro.htm
    and run their shields up app online. Just for peace of mind really.

    VPN is Virtual Private Network and IPsec is IP security. I get the feeling that you are a home user so you won't be using either of these. For more info on IPsec and what it does type it in in XP's help search dialog. There's more there than you would ever want to know. To disable it, go to Control panel / administrative tools / services. Scroll down to IPsec, then double-click on it and change the startup type from automatic to manual or disabled. Hit apply and Ok your way out. The service won't start, or cause any further error messages.

    The TechGuy archives for this forum are available from the top of the NT/W2k/XP forum page. That are fully searchable. You could easily lose half your life in there.

    Hi Banzia

    Yeah I sure remember you. Its always a pleasure to help out people coming back for second helpings.

    Weren't the fireworks great? I though the whole thing was really well organised. Now if only we can get the neighbours to stop letting them off as well.....

    Yeah I enjoyed the fireworks, most of the concert to...

    The Fireworks issue is really current up here in Glasgow, they are being used as weapons here.... as well as just bloody noisey.

    I have just tried the shields up site (bookmarked) and after downloading the plug and play app my system is secure, not that anyone would find me interesting enough to hack...

    I have still to go into services and disable the apps you mention but will have a go later.

    I take it you do not have to go to work tommorow, as your are up late...

    You guessed right. Big lie in tomorrow as the kids were up late watching the show too, so no early wake-ups from them means extra sleep for me too.

    Ah sweet slumber swathe me with thy purple cloak, and all that! :D
