Intel 1XConfig.exe memory leak

I would like to know if anybody noticed a handle leak in the
1XConfig.exe process. It is a slow leak - around one handle every
few seconds; the process starts off with around 300 handles, and ends up
with tens of thousands after several days.

The number of handles can be checked via Task Manager - you need to add
the handle count column, or via Process Explorer from
http://www.sysinterls.com. With the latter, I found that the handle
leaked handle is of Mutex type.

This leak makes me suspect the process to be cause of  delays when the
laptop resumes from suspend, or hibernate. I noticed that the more time
passes since I rebooted the system, the more time I have to wait until
the system is up and running when resuming - hence my suspicion.

Any help welcome

I have solved the problem myself. I have uninstalled the full Intel  program and reinstalled it and now everything is OK.

A better trick is NOT to use at all the Intel Software but instead to use the Software that came with the Wireless card. In my case the Linksys Software.
