windows-low on registry space

this system has reached the maximum size allowed for the system part
of the regestry. additional storage request will be ignored.

Over 150 users remote into the server to use programs and files. No one can login to the server, and this error is comming up when I reboot the server. What does this error mean, also how do I keep this error from happening again?

I think you can fix your problem by installing UPHClean.  Also, see the following thread from another forum where someone solved the same problem using this method:
