When I run this CDF document on my desktop, each time I press "Run again" the Task Manager shows that the MathKernel.exe process associated with the CDF player uses increasingly more RAM.

However if I try it on a laptop with the same OS (Win 7 Ultimate) the memory usage remains more or less constant. What could be wrong with the first CDF Player? I tried to reinstall it but the problem persists. I should add that the first computer has Mathematica 9 installed but the laptop has only the CDF Player.

Could this be some interaction between the CDF player and Mathematica? Even if I have Mathematica closed when I run the CDF document it will show a Mathematica.exe process running.
