winlogon seems to have a memory leak
Posted on 2004-10-12
Can someone help me fix a memory leak on my windows xp machine? the machine would not boot at all even in safe mode. i used winternals ERD program to get to a dos prompt and was able to del the pagefile, during boot up I would get an error message about low virtual memory. This worked and I was able to reboot once and see that the winlogon.exe service was hogging all the ram. it kept going taking more and more ram.
any thoughts other than a full install. I did try a repair early on in this process but that did not help.
