High memory load on Cisco ASA 5510

I have a Cisco ASA 5510. The memory load keeps increasing. Unfortunately, i can't restart the device this week. Right now I'm at 84%. How can i find out what is causing this every slighly increasing usage of memory and reverse it?

This is the e-mail notification i'm receiving every 5 minutes:

<162>Aug 09 2012 11:53:15 ASA : %ASA-2-321006: System Memory usage reached 84%

I have attached the output from "sh pro mem" and below is "sh ver", but not sure if this is enough information for you.

Result of the command: "sh ver"
