Ever since last Tuesdays update load for Win7/64/Pro, and Acrobat and Flash etc., I've been getting the following at shutdown:
Windows detected your registry file is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded now. The applications or services that hold your registry file may not function properly afterwards.
0 user registry handles leaked from \Registry\User\S-1-5-21-2987587682-1074968332-1067063631-1001:
This happens every shutdown. What would I get a message when no registry handles appear to be leaking. Went into registry and checked S-1-5-21-2987587682-1074968332-1067063631-1001. Found it under HCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\InternetRegistry\User\S-1-5-21-2987587682-1074968332-1067063631-1001 . Default value was empty. Also found is same branch under \protected Storage System Provider and in three keys under Windows Search\ProcessedSearchRoots\0007.
Can someone tell me what this warning is being generated and how to make it stop -- occurs ONLY at shutdown. Thanks.
