From my System Analyzer Results, I get a warning; "An Active process has a possible leak (outlook.exe).  Does anyone know what this is about?

Hi ?,
Welcome to the Webroot Community.
This is quite common with not only Outlook, but browsers, too. The longer these programs stay open the more memory they consume. Usually restarting the program will take care of the issue. This is not a security issue of any kind and not Webroot related. Rather the problem comes from the program reported, and it's author (in this case, Microsoft).
Please see this KB Article from Webroot regarding this issue.
Hope this info helps, :)
Ok, thanks...
You're welcome ?, anytime. 🙂
