Memory Leak

Hello peeps,

I have a memory leak on my machine and would like to trace the driver / program that is responsible for it.

Can anyone recommend a standalone program that can help me get to the bottom of this?

Thank you.

Must be something that runs on boot up if you don't know what it is.
Either disable everything or run in safe mode, check the memory doesn't increase over time in task man. Then just start turning things on a one at a time to find the culprit.
I'd prioritize any amateur apps/small business apps first. Eg I'd be surprised if Skype was leaking and no one had reported it.
