Default Re: Any software to locate memory leak?

If that's the case you can check the startup tab in msconfig and add things one a time and narrow it down to which program might be causing the issue.

If it doesn't stop the memory leak than chances are either a service is hosed or your pc has a virus. In either case a repair or a reinstall might be the easiest solution.
This was over multiple installs and I always had AV software on it. I've since put Win7 RTM on here and have no issues. I think it may have been my FTP server software as I changed to Filezilla after the last reinstall. Not sure nothing ever showed up in resource manager eating up that much memory.
