    I recently noticed that the Zemana Antilogger Free exe on my computer was adding a handle about every second. For now I've set the exe to NOT launch at boot as it isn't critical for encryption to be enabled. When it was running though it would happily eat upward of 20,000 handles by itself which is more than the rest combined and easily 10x (or more) than any other program on my system.

    In an attempt to figure out if it might related to a conflict with something on my system I wanted to reach out here and see if anyone else using the free version might check the handle count for the exe and let me know if it is playing nicely for you.


    Update:
    Took a while but I found the cause. Any time a virtual machine is running ZALF eats handles every second. Otherwise it seems to play nicely. Reported to their CS.
