If it is broken, fix it

1420p-20[1] Our own Brian Peek chats on how he fixed a leaky handle driver for the Acer 1420P (PDC build) laptop

Brian used a some free tools to figure out why the one of the tablet's processes was growing at 10 handles second and what to do about it.  With the Process Explorer tool and IDA, he saw CreateFile was being called but never closed. 

Brian has the source code and application up for download.  He also goes more in depth on the his actual fix in his post on his blog.
