After you install Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 (SP4), a memory leak condition may occur on a server that also has Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) installed. When you try to log on to the server computer, you may experience one or more memory errors. Additionally, the server may stop responding (hang), and event ID 2020 may appear in the system event log.
This problem may occur if programs generate remote procedure call (RPC) network traffic. This problem may affect MOM because MOM generates RPC traffic when it communicates with managed agents.

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section of this article.
Although this memory leak problem is known to occur with MOM, other programs that generate RPC traffic may also trigger this problem. You may experience this problem after you install Windows 2000 SP4 even if MOM is not installed or otherwise implicated.
The change in the Userenv.dll file is to fix a token leak issue in the Windows 2000 SP4 Services.exe process. The leak occurs whenever a thread that is executing some of the userenv functions does not impersonate the user for some reason.
