Winlogon memory leak is back. RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI All.

    Having trouble with my Win XP pro workstation.  After giving up the first time, thinking maybe I had some sort of virus, I reinstalled the OS.  The winlogon version I have is 5.1.2600.5512 which I assume came with SP3.

    Have searched high and low, but all the references to this issue point to bugs in the SP2/SP1 version of winlogon.

    Monitoring with perfmon shows a steady increase at the rate of about 4-5 MB/hour

    Funny though, that I haven't seen this issue on my other Win XP systems.

    Any ideas ?

  • Thanks for the hints V.F.

    After installing MS Security Essentials, the system ran like a dog, so disabled McAffee.

    Now the memory leak seems to have stopped.  Although its worth noting that the MS scan didn't show up any issues.

    I'll monitor and post again tomorrow.
