Multiple LC Installer Setup processes remain in memory on Windows

I've mentioned once or twice that LC Setup
is "badly behaved" on all platforms.

Finally filed a bug report on the Windows
variant of this problem, which is that
one or more instances of LC Setup/Installer
process can remain indefinitely in memory.

(I've seen a dozen of these zombie tasks!
That can affect system performance.)

Also a couple of workarounds posted,
so if this has bitten you before,
or if you're not sure, check it out.

I don't lose performance from this anymore,
since I have SSD plus the workarounds,
but filing it now so it can be fixed! :)

Here's the bug report:
