Aren't those prompted warning messages controlled by your administrators,
within your office or organization? well pretty much the application control
and policy controls within your organization is not controlled by Microsoft
but by your Administrator.

Better inquire/contact your administrator about the grounds and parameters
wherein that message should appear and how to go over it since you require
such actions without you seeing that message.

If you Google "maximum number of secrets" you will get quite a few hits,
including this thread shown at Techarena. But one answer struck me...."are
you using fake CD burning/copying software"?
That weird error notice could only come from China where the grasp of
English is rather tenuous at best.

The Consitituion is alive and well! Your interpration of it may be
hazy due to you being a Canadian though. The Consitituion protects ALL
citizens from many things. One of them being the rights of many as
opposed to the rights of the individual. You MAY NOT, for example,
yell FIRE in a movie theater, or other crowded place, depite the Right
of Free speech! There are many other examples of inidviduals rights
being limited due to the "needs of the many", as Spock said!

If this is your laptop, you are your own default "System Administrator"
and if this problem remains ... you might try the following...

Investigate the last program you installed...

this error has been successfully removed (or fixed) by uninstalling a
software application that had not successfully complete its installation
process

In this specific case the program was PCTools "Registry Mechanic". In your
case another application may produce the same error. Try uninstalling and
reinstalling the application.

Please post your results to help the next VISTA user

Good Luck

Just battled this out on an Acer Aspire desktop. Vista home premium. It
turned out to be Webroot Spysweeper that was the offending program that
caused the "the maximum number of secrets that may be stored in a single
system has been exceeded" message. Un-installed it and now system restore
works fine. No more message. As a note the program was functioning and
seemingly working ok but apparently something was wrong... Hope this helps...
