Windows 7: Registry leaks possible solution?

Registry leaks possible solution?

Occasionally i take the time to view my event logs and try to resolve errors.

I came across a registry leak which viewed

(\Device\HarddiskVolume1\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Windows Live\WLIDSVC.EXE) has opened key \REGISTRY\USER\S-1-5-21-XXXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXXX-1001\Software\Microsoft\SystemCertificates\Disallowed


so i did some digging and tried to figure out why isnt the registry successfully closing itself on shutdown?

i did some research and came across
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\PurgeAtNextLogOff"

Im not EXACTLY sure how this registry works, and what repercussions (if any) would happen by doing this.

i created a string value with the SID in the event log (i.e S-1-5-21-XXXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXXX)
and now i get no registry leaks.


Does anyone know exactly what this registry does specifically? i believe it has something to do with offline files.

Why do you say it's not closing on shutdown? Nothing in what you posted shows that.

i should have posted the entire event
the event log was stating i was leaking registrys on log off
so it seems reasonable to think they werent closing properly.

Hi, In the past few weeks I've been getting the green bar of slowness when I open folders. The usual fix recommended does NOT work. (i.e., Properties > Customize > Optimize > General Items --- that does NOT work). I found a solution on a closed forum, with several people saying it had...
