TYVM, I did use that. Also used http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/tweaking_com_svchost_exe_lookup_tool.html which I found to be a little better, but still have memory leaks affecting page-load, mouse\touchpad among other noticable issues. Again thanks. :)

Mark Russinovich’s blog articles describes how to work through memory leaks using his advanced sysinternal tools. Involves a bit of navigating and detective work though. Examples here (http://blogs.technet.com/b/markrussinovich/archive/2009/03/26/3211216.aspx) and his blog. (http://blogs.technet.com/b/markrussinovich/) I recall one of his articles described tracing handles, dll's, threads, etc for a driver issue. He had proved that it was not developed properly.
