Default Virtual memory explosion

process igfxsrvc.exe seems to own about 2gb of
virtual memory, according to process explorer.
Memory leak?

It's an intel graphics driver I think.

Machine is latitude e5400 from 2011.

Fix?

Yes, that is the Intel graphics driver. But the reason it eats virtual memory is unclear... Ben Myers

I can download a newer drive for intel mobile chipset for the E5400 from the dell site
but it doesn't tell me whether to execute it or do something else with it

-rwxr-x---+ 1 rhh None 2398864 Jan 5 13:23 Intel_Mobile-Chipset_A00_R215241.exe

(downloaded but what to do with it)

If I kill it the VM use goes away and some time
later it's restarted itself

Then gradually starts eating VM again.

Just running it seems to work. It creates a driver folder that's installed on reboot.

Now it runs at about 1mb instead of growing to 2gb.

Thanks, I did that on speculation that they wouldn't tempt you with something that wouldn't work as expected, and it
seems to have worked okay. The ig*.exe start small and stay small instead of growing to 2gb over a day now.
