The first user who logs on to a workstation after the
computer is restarted may experience slow logoff times (more than 60 seconds).
When this problem occurs, the Userenv.log file contains entries that are
USERENV(76c.818) 13:06:00:133 MyRegUnLoadKey: Hive unload for S-1-5-21-789336058-1580818891-1801674531-1106_Classes failed due to open registry key. Windows will try unloading the registry hive once a second for the next 60 seconds (max).
Windows cannot unload your registry class file. If you have a roaming profile, your settings are not replicated. Contact your administrator.
DETAIL Access is denied. , Build number ((2195)).
Diagnostic tools (such as Oh.exe) show that Lsass.exe has an open
handle to this key.
The Activeds.dll dynamic-link library (DLL) creates COM
instances during initialization. This indirectly causes a handle to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes
to be cached. If Activeds.dll is initialized by a thread in a
service process while the thread impersonates a user, the handle persists after
the user logs off.

This problem was first corrected in Windows 2000 Service
is an alias of HKEY_USERS\_user_sid_Classes
, which is a user's private classes hive (the
Data\Microsoft\Windows\UsrClass.dat file). When it accesses HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
(which is aliased to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes
), Advapi32 first checks HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes
for an override. An open handle to the user's private classes key
is cached for performance reasons.
If the IPSec Policy agent is
running (it runs in Lsass.exe), it loads and initializes Activeds in the System
context during the startup process. User class key overrides are not possible
in this case. However, if the agent is not running, the first time that HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
is read may be in the user's context (that is, by an
impersonating thread during the user's logon process). This causes a handle to
the user's classes key to be cached.
