I've setup a simple testing for periodically create a TElHTTPSClient object in a Timer, and access a https url, finally Close(true) it by following your sample code, by monitoring the Memory counter (Virtual Memory and WorkingSet) for this process, I can see these counters keep rising and getting over 10 times than initial values (it will grows more if test lasting).
Later I add the Dispose() call besides the 'Close(true)', those 2 counters are getting fine.
And I noticed there're another function of 'Destroy()', did I need to call this as well?

key code for testing:

private TElHTTPSClient HTTPSClient = null;
        private void timer1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
                HTTPSClient = new SBHTTPSClient.TElHTTPSClient();
                // Client Only Production Key
                SBUtils.Unit.SetLicenseKey("XXXXX omit here XXXXXX");
                HTTPSClient.OnData += new SBSSLCommon.TSBDataEvent(HTTPSClientOnData);

                string url = "https://www.msn.com/";
                int res = HTTPSClient.Get(url);

            catch (Exception ex)
                // adding by my guess
                // did i need call this as well?
                // HTTPSClient.Destroy();

        private void HTTPSClientOnData(object Sender, byte[] buffer)

        static void Main(string[] args)

VERSION we used:
SecureBlackbox.HTTP, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5a62fa96d0ac43

Regarding the support ticket, our company might lost the registration email, and Only I can provide is the license key, does that help?

Thank you for contacting us.

Calling Dispose after Close is enough to free allocated memory correctly.
