    splwow64.exe consumes memory

      I assume that this is something not under Workstation's control, but when I run Workstationon Vista, the process splwow64.exe keeps consuming more and more memory, along with 22-25% of CPU time, eventually to the tune of gigabytes of RAM when it starts to interfere with the host machine's performance. Thus I kill the processat least once a day, where it reappears and starts consuming memory again.  

       

       

      Any ideas on how to slap either Workstation or splwow64 so the memory consumption will stop? 

       

       

       

       

       

      I run multiple XP and CentOS as guest OSes most of the day.
