Helpsvc problem


Recommended Posts

Lately, last couple of months, every once in a while Helpsvc (service used for help and support on windows xp) starts itself up and has a huge memory leak - the service is DISABLED but somehow it starts while I am doing whatever and starts eating memory up - today the mem leak topped out 600MB  :uglystupid2:

I run xp sp1 - is anyone having a similar issue ?

how can you be sure of that - upgrading is not always a solution - I have not been experiencing this problem before, it started all of a sudden - so I dont think that even microsoft is aware of this issue - i highly doubt sp2 would fix it

While it may not fix your problem SP2 does resolve a ton of other problems not to mention keeping your current in the upgrade path which is critical.
