I have suddenly started having start up problems with mouse freezes and crashes before and after I get to the desktop and according to Event Viewer the cause is application user profiles not unloading on log off - event ID 1517. However after one or two restarts, the pc will work just fine until the next reboot. I have tried installing UPH Clean with no result but before I go through the time consuming proceedure of trying to find the application causing it, I am thinking of carrying out a quick fix repair instal of my Home XP OS and my question is :- If the registry contains rogue unloaded profiles will a Repair remove them and return my Registry to normal ?
Also, the suggested solution in Event Viewer is :- " The problem of unloaded User Profiles is often caused by services running as a User a/c - try configuring the services to run in either the local service or network service a/c.". What does the underlined section mean - in laymans language please.
It seems your Registry Size Limit RSL has been reached.

These problems occur because some Microsoft or 3rd-party application, device driver, antivirus, etc... does NOT stop and release resources when you log off.
Microsoft has released the User Profile Hive Cleanup Service (UPHClean), which monitors the unloading of user profiles and forces open resources to close, or optionally just reports the problem.
NOTE: See How do I cause the User Profile Hive Cleanup Service (UPHClean) to log when it finds resources that won't otherwise close?

Hope this is helpful.
