Hi.
Most nights, at about 2am, fssm32.exe starts using pretty much all my avaliable memory. The process is part of F-Secure Internet Security 2006 OEM.
I've already done a lot of research into fixing the problem but nothing seems to apply to me.
Just wondered if anyone knew how to fix this problem?
Thanks.

Does this have build in antivirus? Sounds to me like its either scanning for viruses or malware on your machine at that time. Look in the settings and see if there is a better time you can do it if that time is bothering you.

Turn your f-secure internet suite 'firewall' off - as soon as I did that - the I/O writes in the windows task manager stopped (went up every second until 172K and would go higher - as well memory usage was at 91mb using 40 threads)

I still am seeing the lsass.exe i/o writes rocket up 3 per second on my machine - but at least the fssm32.exe process has stopped doing massive i/o every second.

What is a "Memory Leak" ?
I've heard this phrase thrown around a bit, and never had the sense that it actually meant anything. The "metaphor" of the phrase seems a bit false, as if memory is a "bucket" that has a "leak". I thought about posting this in the Hardware>Memory subforum, but it seems to me that if this is a...

Sound is very messed up!
I have a problem with my sound. It isn't sounding right. When I play music, it will only play the some of the music, but not the Voices or smaller things in it. Also when I play games, I will only here somethings not everything that I used to. My drivers are updated and everything. This problem...
