KB2793908–Leaving WS2012 Server Manager Open Can Cause A Memory Leak

I found this KB article which is a part of a much larger cumulative update (KB2811660) for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. 

When you leave Server Manager running in Windows Server 2012, a memory leak occurs in the Wmmimgmt.exe process.

This one is annoying because Server Manager opens by default.  There’s a tip here to stop that from happening.  I haven’t tried the 2008/R2 registry hack yet: Go to HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftServerManager and set the value "DoNotOpenServerManagerAtLogon" to 1.  There is also a GPO option.

You can get KB2811660 via Windows Update.
