Usually we encounter slow logoff of our account in Windows. This is because when a driver or application opens a registry handle and then does not close it, the registry is stuck there and the system shows that the registry is still being used by that driver or application. The problem occurs when we logoff and Windows try to unload the registry of that particular user and the system shows that the registry is still being used by a process.
User Profile Hive Cleanup Service ensures that the user sessions are completely terminated when a user logs off. This service monitors the logged off users that still have registry hives loaded. The service releases any open handles that are still left open by applications and drivers.

If you’re running Windows 7 or Windows 2008 Server, you may see in Application Log repeated events with ID 4107 or if you’re running Windows Vista then the Event log ID can be 11. This event ID means that the certificate “Microsoft Certificate Trust List Publisher” has expired and the URL cache needs to be cleared in order to stop getting this message.
So how do you clear the certificate URL cache? It’s very simple. Just go to the command prompt by writing cmd in the Search Programs and Files box in the Start Menu and then issue the following command from the command prompt:
certutil -urlcache * delete

I’ve come across a new problem in Windows 7. I have enabled hibernation so that I can resume my work without opening all the programs again after starting my computer. The problem is that whenever I resume my computer after hibernation and logon to Windows, the screen dims out and I can’t use any of my laptop brightness keys to bring the brightness back.
I was searching for a solution in the Microsoft Knowledge Base and found out the solution. Microsoft confirms that this is a problem with Windows 7 and has issued a hotfix as a solution. I’ve also read that this problem may also occur in Windows 2008 Server which I have never encountered in my server machine because it’s always on and never sleeps 😉
The hotfix can be downloaded from here. One has to give his/her email address on the download page and the hotfix download link will be emailed to the user.
