V 2.4 Memory / Handle Usage

FYI - I’m a relatively new Comodo Firewall user, but I’m an experienced user / developer. I’m running CFP on 2 OS’s / 4 PC’s (Win2K, XP). The Win2k config is -

Win2K Pro - SP4
CFP 2.4.18.184
Other secutiry app’s running - AVG

Problem - PC gets slow over time. VM usage continually increasing with no activity. Likely culprit is CMDAGENT. Pretty sure there is no valid reason to have 54000+ handles (and climbing). Killed off as many ancilliary processes as possible to rule out interaction - no effect.
