My hmdebug.log grows continully.  The only entry in the log is:

09:31:17 00002c70 548, D:\HEALTHMON\hmagent\action.cpp 0x80041013

This is listed over and over again, every few seconds.  I have done some research, but can't determine what this means or how to get rid of it.

Looks like you're not the first person to encounter this.  This link offers a solution, but apparently you have to obtain a hotfix from Microsoft to fix the problem permanently:


Otherwise it's a matter of stopping the WMI service and deleting the file whenever it gets too big.
