svchost.exe memory leak.


Hello all,

As soon as Windows is starting up, svchost.exe slowly starts growing. Programs do not start initially, until I wait 5 minutes and then terminate svchost.exe

Ofcourse, this kills all the services, causing a restart of svchost and thus the most important services, strangly, this does not restart the memory leak.

I'm not sure how to solute this problem. I know that there was a problem with Windows 2000 and DCOM1.0 (or 1.1, I forgot) where the DCOM services checking caused a memory leak.

I'd expect that they have fixed that in Windows XP, so I'm not too sure if it's the same problem. Seems a bit.. unlikely.

Does anyone have an idea?

SC

My System
Hello SC,

How many services are running at startup? Look thru the BlackViper site to see how many are necessary.

This is for startup apps:

How much RAM installed? Should have at least 250MB.
