My gadgets and process info are attached. Notice how sidebar goes from 500 megs to 20 megs when restarted.

And yes my mistake... I'm running 7068

Well as I said this leak occurs (and becomes exponentially worse) when a computer is running for more than 36-48 hours consecutively. So while it doesn't look bad when you start it up it gets pretty bad in time.

An update on my end... I've had some success with eliminating the ping plotter. Continuing testing to make sure it is that.
