    Backwards Compatibility Service (macompatsvc.exe) memory leak

      This issue has been plaguing me since I upgrade to v 5 of the McAfee Agent (5.0.0.2620) a couple of months ago. There is a memory leak in macompatsvc.exe that causes RAM usage by this service to creep up over time. If left unchecked, I have seen it get to 1.8Gb (the longest I've left it before biting the bullet and restarting the agent). I have a batch task ready to go that I'm planning on running if this doesn't get resolved soon - but it's ridiculous that I should be looking at the ballache of doing this. There is another forum post from other users detailing this problem - has anyone had anything back from McAfee with an explanation/ETA for a fix?
