As far as I know, this is a regression: The previous stable version didn't have this problem.

What GPU do you have, NVIDIA perhaps? If yes, try to disable monitoring of the NVIDIA power value. There's is a known memory leak in NVIDIA drivers.

There should be a value called "GPU Power". Especially that one.
There's also v461.09 available.

Hi,

I've updated my NV drivers to version 461.09, and I've restarted HWiNFO afterward, but the handle leak seems to still exist:

Yes, it looks like 461.09 is still affected. You'll need to disable monitoring of that power value for the time being.
