PSA: Corsair iCUE has a handle leak and makes Windows explorer slower over time

Buddy says hi

Impacted version is current plus several previous: 4.21.173 and below

Handle leak is pretty obvious:


Over time, a day or two, it’ll climb into the several hundred thousands.

Process Explorer shows the handles are to drive resources (including Xbox/Store games that install xhd)



Disabling the storage widget and restarting the service shows handles stay static with iCUE







The handle count grew on my machine about 18-20/second

HTH, unknown when they will fix, I reported this in iCUE feedback 2 years ago.
