Memory leak in IE 10
« on: December 31, 2013, 11:28:33 AM »
Hi.
I have PrivDog 1.8.0.18 installed along with CIS 6.3.302093.2976 in a Win7 SP1 x64 system.
The IE addons show a "PrivDog extension" under AdTrustMedia and a "PrivDog" under "Not available". Both enabled.
I also have Simple AdBlock enabled under addons, but disabled using its icon (it shows as grayed out).

The problem is with some sites, like Google.com, Hotmail.com and a bunch of other random places.
Memory (Private working set) of IE keeps on climbing above the 700MB at which point IE just can't do any work.
If I kill IE and it auto-restarts with the same page, memory starts climbing again.

If I disable the "PrivDog extension" under AdTrustMedia, the problem disappears (the second "PrivDog" entry still shows as enabled) and IE memory stays at the usual 60-140 MB.

Is it a PrivDog bug, or some setting that has to be set somewhere?
Anyway I can generate a trace log for it that might help resolving the problem?

Thanks.

Hi kanenas,

Thank you for your feedback.

I have PrivDog 1.8.0.18 installed along with CIS 6.3.302093.2976 in a Win7 SP1 x64 system.
The IE addons show a "PrivDog extension" under AdTrustMedia and a "PrivDog" under "Not available". Both enabled.
These are records about PrivDog plugin, first one is for the extension itself and second one is for a command button.

The problem is with some sites, like Google.com, Hotmail.com and a bunch of other random places.
Memory (Private working set) of IE keeps on climbing above the 700MB at which point IE just can't do any work.

If I disable the "PrivDog extension" under AdTrustMedia, the problem disappears (the second "PrivDog" entry still shows as enabled) and IE memory stays at the usual 60-140 MB.


This looks like a memory leaks and we'll investigate them and fix in future version.

Thanks a lot for your time and help,
  Alexander.
