A massive memory leak in the latest version of Windows 7 could delay the launch of Microsoft’s latest operating system. The leak, which was first reported on several Windows websites and has been confirmed by Randall Kennedy, contributing editor at Techworld sister site, Infoworld.
According to Kennedy, the RTM version of Windows 7, occurs when the chkdsk.exe utility is run. Chkdsk.exe scans the PC’s hard drives looking for errors in the files and file structures. The memory leak – which can cause the PC to stop operating – occurs when chkdsk.exe is run on secondary disks, as opposed to the disk Windows is installed on.
Kennedy said that the bug would be more likely to affect IT administrators than everyday users, since admins are more likely to run Windows 7’s diagnostic and repair functions. But he speculated that the bug may affect the core NTFS file system, either delaying the planned Windows 7 release date or causing IT to hold off on deploying Windows 7 until Microsoft issues a patch or service pack.
