I have a dell comouter running XP (1.8 P4, 128 mb) that has a memory leak. It's not in any of the processes listed in the task manager but memory slowly grows to use all virtual memory even when the computer is not being used for anything. Here's the log:

Is this a work computer? It looks like you definitely need service pack 1a. I can't guarantee that this will fix your leak, but it just might. Either way it looks like you need it.

The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to infection.
Click here: http://www.microsoft...p1/default.mspx
Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.

This is a work computer. I work for a small non-profit with 4 employees working on a tight end of the year budget. I thought the computer was updated but I will make sure on Monday and send another log afterwards if the problem persists.
