Seeking a way to find a memory leak (LoadLibrary and FreeLibrary)

Hi expert,

Here is my questions -
1. What is the different when I implicitly link in the DLL in the VC project vs. calling LoadLibrary and FreeLibrary in the source codes?
2. In my testdriver, I called LoadLibrary and FreeLibrary multiple times (> 5000), and I see the private byte in perfmon slowly increase to about 6MB.  Is this enough of evident of telling me the DLL that I load has memory leaks?  If so, what will be the approach to trace this issue?  If not, what will cause the 6MB showing in Perfmon?  I was expecting a straight line in the perfmon since I think the freeLibrary() should give back what it took from loadLibrary().
