HI there, there is no maximum size for a registry, I think it's actually talking about your swap file.

You need to delete and recreate yoru swap file. I'm not sure of your system setup but if you Right Click on My |Computer and click on properties and then click on the Performance tab
Then Settings and Advanced you can change your swap file there. If you have another partition then, add a swap file to that (System Controlled) and delete the one that is most probably pointin at your C:

I've not got XP anymore so the directions I gave you were from memory but recreating your swap fill will fix this problem.

Really I would your swap file before doing anything complicated. This error is often a corrupt swap file.
