Windows Server 2003 RTM
Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1
Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2
In the System event log, you might notice the following information:
Type: InformationDate: MM/DD/YYYYTime: HH:MM:SSEvent ID: 26Source: Application PopupUser: N/AComputer: <Computer Name>Details: Application popup: 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.
The way that I would start troubleshooting is the following:
1) In Perfmon, you might want to do the following:
Add System > % Registry Quota In Use > __________
Check to see what the maximum value it is.
Add Memory > Pool Paged Bytes > ___________
2) Check the sizes of the registry hives in:
Security ____ MB
Software ____ MB
System ____ MB
Default ____ MB
C:\Documents and Settings\
Default User ____ MB
LocalService ____ MB
NetworkService ____ MB
User Profiles # ____
Each individual User Profile sizes ____ MB (Sometimes the median and biggest size can be enough).
3) Please make sure that you don’t have the following registry key set:
124594 Understanding and configuring Registry Size Limit (RSL)
4) If you don’t have the registry key set, install the latest UPHClean in http://blogs.technet.com/uphclean/ .
32-bit UPHClean v2.0 build 18.104.22.168 (beta)
After installing UPHClean, set the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UPHClean\ParametersSHARING_VIOLATION_REMAP (dword) 1 (hex)
Stop and Restart the UPHClean Service.
5) If you still have problems, the information that you gathered in step 2 might guide you to an application or service or driver that is not unloading the registry keys.
Hopefully this will help you narrow down the cause of the warning.

OK So this message is still occurring with the uhpclean installed on sbs 2003 r2 32bit 4gb ram.
% Registry Quota In Use is constantly 93.285
Pool Paged bytes are max 236601344
Registry: security 76kb; default 512kb; system 4608kb; software 151,808kb
This is not a terminal server. User profiles are v. small. Don't have registry key set for regsizelimit.
Any further ideas how to proceed to finding what application or service or driver is not unloading the registry keys?
I have the same issue in Windows XP. How can I solve it ? the problem appears at startup. the warning window belongs to csrss.exe.
download and install UPHClean. This service works in XP, too.
