After installing the Pivotal Business Server (PBS), you notice that COM Surrogate (dllhost.exe) is utilizing almost 99-100% of CPU/Memory at intermittent periods.

NotificationSubscriptionService server task, and with the SQL queries underlying that task, resulting in memory leaks with the Pivotal Business Server (PBS) COM object.
