PC-Cillian and Windows default profile

Just updated a stand alone machine to Trend Micro PC-Cillian Internet Security 2008 and when I logged it in I got a message saying there were not enough system resources and I would be logged in with the default profile. Huh? Stand alone machine, not enough resources? My ar@#! A reboot didn’t fix the problem so it was off to Google.

 

The result was this article:

which basically tells you that PC-Cillian is a resource hog and you need to make some registry changes to allow more page pooled memory. The above article contains a link to a Microsoft KB article that did the trick for me.

 

It seems that a few other people are getting the same problem now. Phew, it wasn’t me after all!
