Has the fix been rolled out to Norton 360 18.104.22.168 yet? I am still hitting the leaks and am at 10,004 handles for System. Earlier today I had to disable/re-enable Norton to stop the leakage

I'm very sorry for the incorrect information earlier, but apparently the NIS and N360 patch releases have been held up in anticipation of Microsoft's Windows 8 RTM, which I beleive is scheduled for late July or early August.
In the meantime, this problem can be worked around by clearing out your web browser's downloads folder either by deleting the files there or by moving the files elsewhere.
Again, I'm sorry for the misinformation about the patch release date.
