WMP54GS Process leaking handles

    I am having an issue where the Linksys Wireless monitor is leaking handles. I use Process Explorer from Sysinternals to see what is going on and I see that the Process is leaking a handle. The handle is a registry key that is being repeated over and over and over. Is anyone experiencing anything like this?

    When I get about 65,500 handles open, the Wireless Monitor application turns to inactive. The only way to fix this is to reboot or kill the process and launch it again. Then you will have to wait and see the handles rise and rise.

    I got on a Live Chat session with Linksys technical support but when the guy didn't know what a handle leak was, I knew I was out of luck :) I was ulimately told to uninstall/reinstall and this was no resolution. I am running the latest driver for this product from Linksys.

    The registry key being referenced in Process Explorer is:
    Key HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002bE10318}\0011
