RuntimeBroker.exe size blowing up (>1GB)


  • Hi!

    Recently, I got a memory warning under Windows 8 on my 8 GB laptop. The culprit was RuntimeBroker.exe, which was >4GB in size. As to my understanding, RuntimeBroker.exe is a security process for Metro-based apps. I suppose that this is not intended behavior, and that this might be relevant for Windows security. Searching the net showed me that several people had the same symptoms, all running an app called "The Time". The bug can be easily reproduced by installing the current version of that app.

    Will there be a fix from Microsoft?
