Event Log : Userenv.dll Event 1517 - user profiles are not properly logging off

windows server 2003 running terminal services.
windows 2000 AD

on the windows server 2003, i see this in the event log alot:
userenv.dll error id 1517
Windows saved user DOMAIN\,user. 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.

i scanned through the services in services.msc, and i don't see any listed as localservice.

how do i resolve these errors?  it appears that it is happening for almost all users... both on the local domain, and those connecting to the domain via terminal service.

I had similar errors on a dedicated Terminal Server awhile back and resolved it by removing the server from the domain and re-joining it. I had found the suggestion in the following link. You may want to have a look at it as there are other more attractive suggestions to look at first:
