    Hi, I'm using SpywareGuard 2.1.0 regularly and I've noticed a strange thing that occurs on my pc, after a while when I look at the Windows Task Manager I see that sgbph.exe (which I suppose is the SpywareGuard Browser Hijack Protection is using a lot of handles, for example now the row in question said something like:

    sgbph.exe
    CPU : 00
    CPU Time: 0.00.01
    Memory used: 4036 KB
    Handle: 9814
    Thread: 1

    as a test I disabled the Browser Hijack Protection from the control panel
    of SpywareGuard and then reenabled but after 30 secs the process returns using a lot of handles.

    Now I've looked at the Task Manager and the handles are at: 15160 going up.

    I'm asking if anybody as the same problem as me, and if this problem is real.

    Thanks in advance.
    Alex

    Hi Alex,

    Yes, this is a known bug to be fixed in the next release, though no date for that release has been set yet. So the problem is indeed real. ;)

    Here's a thread where Javacool commented a little about this:

    Best Wishes,
