Does anyone know how to resolve a major memory leak with Microsoft Forefront on a Windows 2008 R2 64x  server? It just continues to rise till all RAM is consumed from start-up.  

My System is an ASUS P5Q Premium w/ 8Gb Ram I also have SQL 2008 R2 installed.

I have stopped SQl which dropped the ram signficantly, but it was ONLY when the Forefront Service 'MsMpSvc' was STOPPED for the 2nd time that RAM flatlined.  Even after Realtime Protection is turned OFF ram climbs to 100%.

Should I just reinstall AVG Server Security?

You should anyway exclude large files from file scanning, these are especially files from SQL Server, Exchange Server or other big files. This affects all virus scanners.

For e-mails, uses gateway scanners and for SQL server DBs, I can not see a reason to scan them.

Unfortunately Nothing is being scanned.  The service just kicks off from boot and never stops.  Some say its certain updates that send it silly then it settles back down. This wont cut it, so the best option is uninstall and try the release version because it works Ok when it does. Thanks anyway bembi.
