Windows Live OneCare consumes all memory - physical and virtual RRS feed

  • Question


    I recently bought 2 copies and have Windows Live OneCare installed on 3 laptops and 1 desktop.  The desktop is running XP Media Center and works fine.  Two of the laptops are running Vista Home and are running fine.  The other laptop is running XP Pro Svc Pack 2.  On this machine, every time Live OneCare is running, winss.exe continues to consume all available memory and causes Windows to add more virtual until I run out of available hard drive space.  The laptop has 1Gb of RAM and winss.exe will cause more than 2Gb of ram to be in use according to Task Mgr.


    Can anybody help with this?
