On a Windows Vista-based or Windows Server 2008-based computer that has the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) service installed, the private memory size that is allocated by the Snmp.exe process starts to increase after several hours. This problem occurs if the Management Information Base (MIB) II Objects are frequently accessed.
To work around this problem, stop and then restart the SNMP service every few hours.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
