Windows - Low On Registry Space

Some bizzare is happening to me.

I was trying to install cd burner on my pc.
After inserting the cd burner and inserted the cd to install the software, it turns out that for some reason, the cd burner was not being recognized by my win2k os.

I decided to remove it and put back the regular cd.

During this process, power supply died on me because I was shutting down booting up more frequently.

Anyway, I replaced the power supply.

Now, when I boot up the pc, I get an error:

Windows - Low On Registry Space.

Then a more detailed message:

Your maximum registry size is too small. To ensure that windows runs properly, increase your maximum registry size. For more information, see Help.

Does anyone know how to resolve this, please, please?

Thanks in advance

I have a Windows 2000 machine that's giving me a problem. When I boot and log on to the machine, it displays the following error message: Your maximum registry size is too small. To ensure that Windows runs properly, increase your registry size. How can I correct this error?

The solution is to increase the Registry Size Limit (RSL) value. Open the Control Panel System applet and go to the Advanced tab. Click Performance Options, then click Change (in the Performance Options dialog box's Virtual Memory section). The Virtual Memory dialog box, which Figure 2 shows, contains the RSL settings. Increase the value in the Maximum registry size (MB) text box; I recommend at least twice the Current registry size value. You'll need to reboot the machine for the changes to the RSL value to take effect.
