This error is due to a bug: this issue occurs because some allocated memory is not freed when you use the Win32_Service WMI class to query some service information.

NOTE: this hotfix is available only on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 systems.

To solve this boring situation, specially when you're monitoring remotely several servers or systems with WMI queries, you will need the following hotfix (provided by Microsoft): https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hotfix/kbhotfix?kbnum=981314&kbln=en-us.
