It's likely not a problem then. Yes, memory leak of a process is often detectable through task manager or performance monitor.

Kaspersky on the other hand is probably a different story, because if memory serves me (no pun intended) it will install a multitude of drivers deep into the system.

I noticed you have a huge amount of "handles" showing in task manager (746,383). That's ~104 times more than I see on my computer (7,146). You can check the amount of handles per process by enabling the Handles column in Task manager. It might lead you in the right direction to determine the source of the problem.

Also, since chinga69 had a similar problem perhaps he will share his solution.
my problem is not fixed it is ongoing

Do you know what type of resource is being leaked in your case? Is it attributable to a process? If so, does the act of restarting the process/service have the effect of "resetting" the situation?

all i have seen so far is
sql server use up to 800 meg of ram
then media portal freezes and when i check some how mediaportal exe has taken the ram some how
i havent checked any further but i have turned on handles now so will check if i can find out more now
it can run for 2 hours or 2 days then the problem shows up

SQLServer attempts to collect as much memory as it can get its hands on, but it's all given back when it's needed. (SQL's own internal memory management complexity rivals that of the OS.)

The fact that your symptom is periodic and measured in days-after-reboot is strongly suggestive of a resource leak. It may not be a handle leak though - there are many other different types of memory/resources which are sometimes leaked due to programming oversights.

We should probably give the OP their thread back, but if you'd like to troubleshoot, I or others here can possibly help.
