    running windows 7 with only flashget (32bit) and nod32 (latest release) on 64 bit ultimate RTM version and I seem to have a possible memory leak as over 2-3 days all system resources are taken and eventually you cant run IE or any other programmes has anyone else encountred this with either of these 2 programmes ? or is it possible something else is causing it?.

    I use Free Download Manager from freedownloadmanager.org and it is the same as Flashget and all those other ones. Plus it is very small and doesn't eat memory for lunch.

    well why i asked if its tracked back to specific application is because im having memory leak in audiodg.exe as well and need to disable sound enchantments to fix it. However this is more probably Creative fault and their X-Fi drivers then Micosofts...

    If you read the link that i provided u carefully, u would see that in his case, ESET was the culprit. Do you use it ? Then UNINSTALL it, and see what happens.


    EDIT : apparently x64 combined with ESET/NOD32 and dl managers is a bad combo

    So frosty, you need to uninstall nod32, cause it's causing this issue for you too. It's a bad combination together with win7 x64 and dl'managers.

    Use another AV, like Avira, or AVG, or something you prefer.

    I couldn't agree more - these security suites - most of them have this memory leak issue - they are going crazy to scan all the downloaded files from dl-managers, but they just "forget" to release the RAM when they finish the job, and so the RAM gets fully used after a few downloaded GB...

    I have to agree with Genuine555 there. A lot of download managers are known to do that. I would honestly stay away from them when possible. One I know that is good though is Bitcomet. It is a torrent downloader but also works as a basic downloader if it is integrated into the browsers lol
