Access is denied error when crawling a MOSS content

When we try to crawl a content souce of sharepoint site we sometimes come across the error "Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to this repository, or add a crawl rule to crawl this repository. If the repository being crawled is a SharePoint repository, verify that the account you are using has "Full Read" permissions on the SharePoint Web Application being crawled. (The item was deleted because it was either not found or the crawler was denied access to it.)" as shown in the screenshot below.

To get rid of this error, follow the below steps..

1.Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
2.In Registry Editor, locate and then click the following registry key:
3.Right-click Lsa, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
4.Type DisableLoopbackCheck, and then press ENTER.
5.Right-click DisableLoopbackCheck, and then click Modify.
6.In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.
7.Quit Registry Editor, and then restart your computer.

Please do the same on all the WFEs of the sharepoint farm.

Once done, kindly start the full crawling. This runs without any issues!!!
