Each data collection returns the following warning:
<timestamp>: <server>: The Add/Remove Software data provider failed to load the user <domain/user> registry hive on computer <server> due to the following error: The system cannot find the file specified.

In registry node “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\” there are some user profiles records without “ProfileImagePath” value.

There are two ways to resolve this issue:
1. Find all records in this node “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\” without “ProfileImagePath” value and delete them
2. Add “ProfileImagePath” value (Expandable String Value) with an empty value to the profiles where it is missing
