    Hi all,

    I've got this issue on my system, where my system memory is been eaten up by some process which I canít see it on the task manager - process tab. I'm in the process of developing this system which uses a .dll library from a different team. As such of my code I donít do any much of memory handling. May be I would have called a malloc twice but I've made sure all the memory which was allocated are freed out at end. But the system will be used heavily and i could see that the memory is getting eaten up rapidly. To find out which process was consuming the max memory on the process tab. I donít see that any process with such a huge number. I suspect there is some hidden process which invisible from the task manager just killing my system.

    Is there anyway i could find consequence of this? Any tool which i could use? I almost thought of every possible away by far.

    Thanks guys

    You could try process explorer:

    Process Explorer
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
