Preferred Solution: Windows 7 explorer.exe running at total memory after a few min. "memory leak?"

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Solved: Windows 8.1 where is all my memory going? memory leak

Ok, I had hyper-v enabled. Although it wasn't running, it seems as though windows was still reserving some resources for it. Once I disabled it via "turn windows features on or off" and restarted my memory usage immediately returned to the way it was.

Hi. Recently I copied my P2P download folder to a new, larger hard drive. I've noticed that whenever I open the folder, my computer starts running rather sluggishly (I have a 2.8 gigahertz celeron, and 1 gig of ram). This has never happened before. I look in the task manager, and explorer.exe is using near 100% of cpu power, what I believe is called a memory leak. This is solved by restarting explorer.exe, but it comes back every time I open the folder, whether it's from the shortcut on the desktop (which really is a shortcut to a Kazaa application that then opens the folder, or so it seems to me...) or from My Computer.

I'm anxious to solve this problem. Thanks!

Daniel
 

A:Explorer memory leak?

Actually, a memory leak is where the application continually consumes more and more memory.

I think what you have is a spyware/malware infection. First step would be to get rid of Kazaa, since that's implicated in tons of these kinds of reports.

Hey everyone. I am running Windows XP and I installed SP2 about a month ago. I just noticed a few days ago that under my processes, explorer.exe is getting out of control. When I start up, it is at the normal 20,000 K. However, it then continues to climb. For example, I restarted an hour ago and it is at 52,000 K already. It climbs to upwards of about 200,000 K. I'm assuming this is a memory leak of some kind, but not sure. Last night I did a virus scan, ad-aware scan, cleaned the files up, a defragged. While everything else is running great, i still have this "memory leak" with the explorer.exe. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:explorer.exe memory leak?

Hmm... I just checked mine, and it's using 52,380k, never checked it before. I haven't had any virus or spyware issues, so that may be normal.

I have a Vista computer. When I log onto a limited account (but not the admin account) explorer will have a memory leak. It will increase rapidly till it takes up about 2,000,000 kb of memory, at which point my computer will dump the physical memory and crash. I do not know what is causing it, or why it does not happen to the admin account. Starting in safe mode does not prevent the memory leak, but if I turn off explorer and run everything using cmd or taskmgr, then the computer runs normally.

I have a win 7 64, asus M4 a785 MB with 4 GB RAM

I am trying to identify a memory leak. After a reboot I am typically at 1638 MB used and it gradually rises over a few days to about 3000MB used.

Now my problem is that if I open "Process explorer" (the one from systernal) and dump the usage and compare them, they are not changing.
SVChost, system explorer , mbam... all stay approx the same for a total load of 1240MB.
There is another approx 400MB used that grows to 1700MB and that I cannot track.
any others tools to diagnose the total memory and where it is used.

Ever since yesterday, I get instances of Explorer.exe randomly generating and sucking up CPU cycles, memory, and handles. I don't know where it's coming from. But it seems that a couple instances of ctfmon.exe always appear before it happens. I've run AVG, Spybot, and MBAM to try to track this down. I've tried starting the system with only Microsoft services. I'm no closer to a solution.
I can't troubleshoot this one on my own. Help.

Hello, I'm running a 64 bit Windows 10 laptop. On idle, the System process is showing a high memory usage of more than 150 MB, usually more than 200 MB. Using poolmon the pooltag SpDN showed up with a memory leak. It leads to the Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver, iaStorV.sys. How should I go about fixing the problem?

A:High memory usage / Memory leak caused by Intel driver

Hi,

Since this is a Intel driver I doubt the WDK can fix it.
You may try to see if there's a more current version of Intel's RST available for download and see if that fixes the leakage issue.

A:General Win7 memory leak and Unknown memory usage?

Hi mesohamster welcome to SevenForums

First I recommend uninstalling Avast then we could go from there . Using Revo Uninstaller

Click on the app inside RevoUnistaller and choose uninstall
Click on Yes to agree you want to uninstall
If you get the builtin Uninstaller for the app use that and once you're done click Finish
Back inside RevoUninstaller click on Next
Let RevoUninstaller scan for left over registry keys . Click on Select All and choose Delete .
Once done click on Next.
Let the left over files and folders be locates then Click on Select All then click Delete then Next and you should be done .

A:Troubleshooting Excessive Memory Use (Memory Leak?) after playing vid.

Have you looked in Chromes own task manager to see if you can find a tab using excessive ram?

Using the Task Manager in Chrome Browser

See if indeed closing the video tab actually deletes the listing from the task manager perhaps?

Has anyone else noticed that chkdsk uses all available physical memory if you let it run long enough I find that if I run chkdsk and leak memory usage memory / high chkdsk watch the memory usage in task manager it jumps by about MB every seconds or so until it either finishes or hits around GB at which point my physical memory shows used I'm running GB and the system of course slows to a crawl If you just run a quick chkdsk on your boot drive you may not notice it but try running something longer like chkdsk r on a flash drive or chkdsk f on a bigger internal drive but not chkdsk high memory usage / memory leak your OS drive as this would require a reboot and watch the memory usage climb I have duplicated this on both systems I have running win My XP machine checking the same USB flash drive uses a much more normal amount of memory for chkdsk - MB Anyway just looking for suggestions as I have old hard drives that I would like to check Normally I would run all at once but with this system it's just not possible as they each use about MB of memory and once all the system RAM is used up the disk checking process slows down a lot

A:chkdsk high memory usage / memory leak

chkdsk /r is implys /f if you only doing NTFS format then try /I or /D or /C

/I NTFS only: Performs a less vigorous check of index entries.
/C NTFS only: Skips checking of cycles within the folder
structure.
/B NTFS only: Re-evaluates bad clusters on the volume
(implies /R)

Hello all New member here I have had an issue with my PC since I quot upgraded quot to windows earlier this year that is driving me batty Unfortunately I upgraded the hardware motherboard CPU and RAM at the same time so I can't rule out a hardware issue completely The issue stuck around despite a total hard disk wipe and reinstall from scratch I'm a relative noob as far as this sort of troubleshooting and I'm really not sure how to proceed My normal modus operandi has been to simply wipe and start over if I ran into serious enough issues but that did not work this time always Leak. runs Memory of Probable System memory out Months of google searches have not really yielded any progress so I thought it could not hurt to ask here So the problem Basically the longer the system runs the more memory it uses Eventually it freezes up and itf you let it alone long enough after this starts it will finally reboot itself Doing Probable Memory Leak. System always runs out of memory anything intensive hastens the process of memory drain basically the harder it works the faster it happens If I am using the PC hard it only takes a couple hours to Probable Memory Leak. System always runs out of memory burn through all GB If I am away for days with nothing but background processes running it takes a few days but it eventually crashes and reboots The only thing that might be slightly out of the ordinary for most users is the fact that I use the PC as my TV and DVR through Windows Media Center and the use of a Silicondust HD Homerun Prime cablecard tuner Other than that it's pretty basic stuff on my PC I don't do any gaming these days and usually the hardest workout the machine gets is downloading large files like movies I will try to attach a few snapshots of task manager etc as I gather you folks can make more sense of them than I can If you need anything else please do not hesitate to ask I am sick of rebooting my PC all the time to avoid crashes Any and all help would be sincerely appreciated Alan

It also depends, what kind of and how many extensions you have.
Some of them might be causing it, try to temporarily disable all.
Finding a cause can be difficult, you can try CleanMem Free.

A:Memory Usage Goes Up Gradually (Memory Leak)

Hi, in cases like this I like to look to the most obvious cause and one very often ignored. One of the major problems in Vista XP and 7 is a corrupt pagefile . Can return all sorts of problems and is simple to fix and perfectly safe. Is the paging file on the C drive? Or have you moved it somewhere else, if on the same drive as the OS then:-

Go to control panel, system and security system
Click on advanced tab
In the performance section click on settings
Again click on Advanced

Select the Virtual memory custom tab and set max and min to 00, 00 click on set then apply and ok out. Reboot computer.

Now go back to VM settings and select "system managed size" again press set and apply and ok out Reboot to take effect.

This has created a new pagefile and set the VM to the preferred settings.

Let us know how you get on.

Just got on the computer now, and suddenly everything seems to be slow, I checked the memory and found out that some program is using 94% of the memory, when I was looking for the program I found out that no program is using that amount of memory, 200 at most.

I downloaded RAMmap to map out the memory, and found out that about 94% of the memory is Nonpaged Pool (unallocated?)
. Please see the image below:



As you can see the memory leak clearly.
This is a new PC with windows installed a few days ago.

Here is a second picture, after a computer restart, without firefox it gets to 15% although there is no application who is running on 15% (of 8G, is about 1,000MB of process, which in the picture you can see that it cant be). - maybe it's ok maybe not, in both cases there is a leak as you can see in the first post.

Hello everyone!
 
Google Chrome browser, along with their extensions, are responsible for excessive memory consumption on Windows OS.
 
As the Chrome closing in management tasks, be observed a significant reduction in the use of memory (seen but not captured).
 
Using Windows Kit, Poolmon.exe, with open or closed Chrome the value of CM31 tag leak is pretty much the same, just over 80 million bytes.
 
CM31 relates to what?
 
Remembering my English is not the official language.

Has anyone noticed after their computer has been on for extended periods of time that they have no memory left. Initially after booting Windows 7 memory usage is at about 37% but after 10hours or so the memory usage is up to 93% (even with no visible user programs running) and im getting the error:insufficient resources when trying to open programs.

I have 4gb of RAM.

Anybody know of any fixes for this?

Hi Rupert and Welcome to the forum. Well, i guess that could be due to spyware or virus infection.Could you post a screenshot of the task manager (Processes tab) so that we can get some hint. When did you 1st notice this change? Which anti virus software are you using? Did you recently download or install anything?

Hi there,

This is maybe the wrong section, but I did not know which one to pick:


I experience issues when I open directories with big HD movies in it (around 4-10GB). The media player loads fast (VLC, KMP, WMP) but the video never starts.
After 5-10 secs, my computer starts to run very slowly, I figured out that it was caused by page faults. Indeed, my memory usage goes from 10% to 97% (I have 4Gb, x64 WIN7) in 10secs.

Even though none of the process in the task manager shows a usage of 3.5Gb, I figured out that killing Explorer.exe releases the memory instantly.

This problem avoid me to play HD movies without killing explorer which is very anoying...

Does any one knows how can I deal with this issue?

Thank you!

You are going to have to install and run SysInternals Process Explorer from Microsoft.com, and find out what sub process of svchost is eating up your RAM.  Svchost is known to be malware using that filename.  Most likely you are infected, so I suggest you follow the cleanup steps to a T, to make sure your machine is clean first.

I have a clean XP pro pc that crawls after startup as it uses up to 300MB to run windows update. It is only obvious what is happening by displaying peak and Virtual memory usage in task manager. With 1gb of mem it is Ok but with 500mb it is unusable until WU has given up after about 20 minutes. I have tried Dial-a-fix to no avail and deleted the windows update executables to force a reinstall, which worked but has not fixed the problem. Is there some clever way to reinstall Windows Update?
According to Microsoft this memory leak was a problem with XP SP1 but I am using SP3 so the patches must already be installed!

So you have 1 gig of RAM installed with XP SP3..... do you have your install disk(s) available and usable? I would recommend a repair install to see if that helps.

It kind of does sound like malware, doesn't it? I'd keep looking.

Have you tried a system restore to before that last update?

Have you pressed ctrl+alt+del and poked around to see if you can find a resource hog? Under the processes tab in the mem and cpu columns, and just in general in the performance and networking tabs, is anything just running away?

A:Windows 7 chkdsk memory leak?

Maybe it's not faster but somehow more accurate or more likely to correct problems successfully?  Without looking into the implementation, it's impossible to know what's better, or really even
if anything's better, but it's been stated it's allocating this memory by design.  We have no choice but to live with it.  There are a LOT more important glaring problems in Windows 7.
-Noel


When you say "it's been stated it's allocating this memory by design" are you referring to the following quote from

http://blogs.msdn.com/e7/archive/2009/08/10/what-we-do-with-a-bug-report.aspx
"from their perspective the memory usage was by design and was a specific Windows 7 change for this scenario (the /r flag grabs an exclusive lock and repairs a disk and so our assumption is
you’d really like the disk to be fixed before you do more stuff on the machine, an assumption validated by several subsequent third party blog posts on this topic)."
He states that the behavior is limited to the /r switch but I've seen it with the /f switch - the memory usage increases just as quickly, the only reason it doesn't get as high is because chkdsk /f doesn't take as long.
It might be nice to get a little more information from someone on the "file system team", but if they truly have looked at the issue as he stated in the blog, then it either isn't a bug or it is but it would be too much work to fix when weighed against the
small number of complaints.
Anyway, I don't want to get off topic, and I think it's fine if you disagree with me, but I just genuinely want to hear from other people that are facing the same "issue" that we are (if you can call it that).  Who knows - maybe there is someone out
there with a specific configuration whose chkdsk only uses the good old 30MB or so of RAM and he can give us all a little advice.

In the last week or so, I have to reboot my pc almost every day because the RAM usage gets up to 93% and I can't do anything, even launch taskmanager. When I've caught it before it was too full, I saw that almost nothing was listed as using RAM (system was at like 80MB). Essentially, RAM is "in use", but the use is not explained by taskmgr or perfmon.

I'm prepared to learn that it's a BIOS or mem controller issue, but it never happened in several years of XP and Vista on the same rig. Also I see I'm not the only one with the same issue on Win 7 64bit:

Somebody tried to shut him down, but I have a feeling his complaint is as legit as mine. There's no excuse for Windows using all of the memory if it can't flush when you need it.

Ideas?

Blaming windows would be the first reaction, but is it warranted? I have no such problem, with 64 bit. Maybe, you have a virus, or maybe all your memory is not recognized. There are a lot of areas to look into before we can assume that it is windows.
Many times the A/V is a memory glutton. Other times other things are going on in the system, indexing, or a virus scan. All things to think about.

if I leave my computer unattended for an extended period, the RAM usage climbs up to around 80% and leaves me struggling to use my computer when I return. It is not one process that causes this - but nearly everything, Chrome itself can get up to 100,000 KB memory usage, along with every other process on the computer. The only way to resolve it is to restart my PC.

This doesn't occur if I stay on the PC and do not leave it unattended - but for reasons I cannot fathom, if I walk away for 15-20 minutes, it'll start to hog the memory and make it unusable again.

I've been told it's because of the Superfetch service - but upon disabling it, there was no notable increase in speed. My other Windows installations work fine - as does Ubuntu, so it doesn't appear to be a hardware issue.

Any suggestions as to what to try?

Hello,

Over the last few weeks I've been noticing the memory usage on my computer increasing slowly over time as the computer stays on. I am running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit with 4GB memory and am running both Avast Antivirus and Malwarbytes and neither have found anything suspicious.

While looking at my Windows processes in task manager, I noticed that one process, scan2pc.exe, has almost 18,000 handles, way more than any other process. In addition, some of my processes keep increasing in their memory usage. nvtray.exe seems to be the biggest culprit, starting out at around 1,000K but if I leave my machine on for a few days will balloon to over 500,000K. Could malware or a rootkit infected my machine? I'm not blue-screening or experiencing crashing programs (yet), but the memory leaking is certainly bothersome. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello SebaaVH,

You appear to be one of those affected by this Google Chrome bug that only affects "some." Now, since I don't know if they ever fixed it (I don't use Chrome), I would suggest trying a different browser (i.e., Firefox or Opera) to see if that fixes your issue. Now, some have stated they fixed their issue by clearing their browser cache but that would be just a band-aid IMHO:

Regarding your League of Legends issue, I don't play it myself but your issue (or something similar) has come up several times quite recently and, if you do a Google search for that issue, you will find tons of people having issues when playing it online. You might be better off seeking assistance at a gaming forum for that specific issue IMHO.

Good luck.

Hey, so over the past few weeks my computer has been getting random CPU spikes, where there's only 3% being used but it says it's using 100% of it and freezes.

On top of this, Windows Update seems to be taking up a lot of memory - and I mean insane amount, I've seen it go up twice as high as in this screenshot. For now, I keep the service disabled rather than cripple my machine, but when it's enabled it's always when it's "Checking for new updates"

After further investigation it seems like both of these problems are caused when I am doing something over the internet. The CPU problem happens when I'm downloading games off of Steam (as well as random things as well, but it always happens in that scenario) and the memory problem always happens when windows update is checking for new updates.

How do I fix this?

Hi,
That's not good that you let this issue persist for six months. There's some things you should try here. For one, download DR. Web CureIt. Do a google search for that and it should pop up. It's probably better if you run it in safe mode. post back the log when it finishes. note that this scan will take a long time. Make sure that when presented with options, you select cure and then move incurable. After that, look for Kaspersky's free virus removal tool 2010 and run that. That should find some stuff if anything will. kaspersky has very strong find and removal capabilities. Finally, run an online scan with Eset online scanner. You can find it at eset.com/onlinescan. Post back the three logs in your next reply. Hope this helps.

Good luck,

Hiya

The NNTP (Network News Transport Protocol) service in Windows NT 4.0
and Windows 2000 contains a memory leak in a routine that processes
news postings. Each time such a posting is processed that contains a
particular construction, the memory leak causes a small amount of
memory to no longer be available for use. If an attacker sent a large
number of posts, the server memory could be depleted to the point at
which normal service would be disrupted. An affected server could be
restored to normal service by rebooting

Lately, my windows explorer has been running at an incredibly high rate. Likely a virus on my system, but I don't know what. Malwarebytes keeps picking up spyware and adware and whatnot, and I run the full scan, supposedly get rid of the issues, and then restart my computer as it requests, but it seems that my computer is still running very slow. Additionally, I've got some form of Google search redirect virus. Every time I click a link, it redirects me to a different website than what I was looking for. Apparently Malwarebytes either cannot find, or is incapable of removing the issue. I made sure the version I have is the most recent.

Any ideas? I'm attaching a photo of the insanely high memory usage, so please, if you see anything out of the ordinary, let me know.

Reading around I thought IE eliminated it's memory leaks but I definitely have it when I use IE8.

I typically have three windows of IE8 open and within one will have multiple tabs, maybe five or six at the most. Over time memory usage definitely grows and is not reclaimed as tabs or even windows are closed. Only way I can reclaim memory is by closing all windows and putting computer to sleep. When I awaken it and start again memory usage is back to it's initial state. But then it will grow again as I use IE8. Seems to happen no matter what websites are visited so I don't think a specific site is causing the problem.

Is it a problem somewhere in my system or is it just how IE8 really is?

Just installed windows 7 64-bit with 5gb of RAM. I usually run WoW, MSN, itunes and google chrome all at the same time and it'll be ok for about a day, and i usually let it hibernate (ALOT). when i turn it back on and run the same programs memory useage is at 99%, and im CERTAIN it shouldn't be. WoW is running the most memory and it's only a gig, the rest added up should only be at 2-3gb maximum. Is the memory having a leak or is it relative to the hibernation?
Thanks,
Nick

A:Memory leak

Well, when you come back from hibernate, the same thing that was there when you went into hibernation is there when you come back. If you wanted to clear the open programs, just shutdown instead of hibernating. Then when you boot, the memory usage would be less. I must admit, though, I hate shutting down. I just put mine to sleep.

But the hibernation itself won't increase memory usage. And I doubt your memory is "leaking" out. You might try running a memory test, just to make sure you haven't lost some of the chips to failure. I don't have a specific program to try, so unless somebody else has a recommendation, you'll just have to Google to find one.

If WoW uses 1GB and the other programs use 2-3GB, 3 + 1 = 4. And if the system (OS and other background stuff) uses a little under 1GB, there's where all your memory is going (4 + 1 = 5). That could explain it....

What is the memory usage after a normal boot? (before opening any programs)

If the computer has been running for a while, and I put in a DVD, the player tells me I can not run the DVD and I shoudl turn down teh resolution. I get a problem when I try to run the Madden 2003 game (tells me that there is not enough memory). If I reboot, everything works just fine.

I did not have this problem before I added the RAM, and I did not install anything new when I put in the RAM.

Any ideas about how to deal with this? Any good apps to find the memory leak?

Got to the conclusion that it might be a memory leak. Looking at the task mamager, every time I open a page, the amount of available physical memory goes down. Then later, in 10 or 15 minutes when I open the task manager again, I have no numbers and the computer acts up. Is it a memory leak?, Can I fixing it just changin the memory stick?, Please help.

Hey guys.
I recently re-installed my Windows 8.1 on my SSD.
Installed drivers, updated them and everything is fine.
But I am having a slight problem with memory not sure if it's a memory leak?


Basically sitting here with Google chrome open with 2 tabs open and the default Windows 8.1 programs running. I do not understand how 2gb of memory is being used.
I also play a Massive Multiplayer Online game called Wildstar that uses up 2gb of memory because it's such a big game.
I feel as though there's something up with my PC and there's something missing?
Can anyone help, thanks!

A:Memory leak

I don't see anything unusual or a cause for concern.

Adding up items in the memory usage columns will never equal total usage. It was never intended that it would. The screenshot does not show the full process usage which will typically be much higher. There are also some very significant users of memory that are not processes, not all of which are shown by Task Manager.

For what you have running 2 GB usage on an 8 GB system does not seem at all unusual. Also understand that memory usage in a modern OS is highly dynamic. Current usage might seem high but that is only because there is currently no better us for the memory. Memory was designed to be used, not sit idle. If a large application requires more memory the current usage will be automatically trimmed back, drastically if necessary.

Memory management in any modern OS is highly complex, far more so than most people imagine.

I don't know if this is related to the saving pictures effort (thus the posting in this section) or the OS or something else but after I have done a right click and save of a number of pictures I suddenly get no response to the right mouse click and I can't even get task manager. If I exit some of the files in my program tray it sems to free up memory and then I can download again or enter into task manager. Seems that something consumes memory and doesnt release it. Any clues?

A:memory leak

Hi ijusth !

You can check the memory and cpu usage of all running processes via the task manager, provided you're able to view it when the problem occurs. I suppose that if you run the task manager beforehand you'll still be able to bring it in front by using Alt+Tab.

In the task manager (processes tab), go to view => add columns and check the box in front of virtual memory. Tell us if you see any process taking most of your memory or cpu usage when the problem happens.

How much ram do you have and at what size have you set your pagefile ?

I have 4GB of memory in my computer and for some reason if I leave My computer on for the day when I get home in the afternoon the memory usage is up at 60-90% and my computer starts getting really Laggy and slow. Then I have to turn it off and after a restart its fine for the rest of the day. I am very careful and only install programs I can trust so I'm guessing its a bug somewhere?

Hi,

I was just downloading somes big files with jdownloader while watching a movie, but the system was slowy getting laggy, so I checked the memory usage and i was almost full (90% of physical memory in use) and perfmon could not show me anything.

Right now, about ten minutes later, the memory usage is still the same, I killed jdownloader, java and kmplayer , but it still the same. I cant find who is guilty. I post some screens.

My cfg :

Core2Duo E8400 3GHZ
4GB DDR2 PC6400
Win 7 x64 Ultimate
Notes : I use nod32 AV (not smart security). Superfetch is off.

Try uninstalling your antivirus for the time being. Usually when you are downloading something or working with large files, there realtime scanners are a pain.

A:memory leak

As discussed previously, it sounds like a resource leak, but the real questions are "what's leaking?" and "can it be worked around without (re)coding the component in question?". This is all assuming you're already on the latest version of all the components involved, which tends to have a way of resolving (embarrassing) known resource leaks

The best way to troubleshoot is to start a Perfmon log straight after a reboot, and to keep it running until the "freeze" symptom manifests itself. Given it can take days, the trick is to keep the log file from growing to a monstrous size. That's done by being selective about what's being monitored, and how often perfmon records a "sample".

As a suggestion, create a Perfmon counter log to record all instances of all counters under the following objects:

- MEMORY
- PROCESS
- PROCESSOR
- SYSTEM
- THREAD

Set the sample interval to say 2 minutes, and kick off the log soon after the next scheduled reboot. Stop the perfmon log only once you're confident that the machine is clearly being all weird in the particular way which you wish to analyse.

If you need more info on how to create the perfmon log, just yell. Ditto if you'd like assistance in analysing it. There's nothing particularly personal in there other than the hostname of your server and the names of the processes running on it.

A:Memory Leak

Since you've got Process Explorer on your system - use it to identify what processes are running under that particular svchost.exe process (PID 992) Once you find what's running beneath it, let us know and we'll be able to move on with more stuff to do. (the easiest way to get the info is to hover your mouse over the svchost.exe process - then the program will pop up a list of services that are running under that process).Are you performing any debug routines? I see that mdm.exe is running - this can be a result of a manual debug, or can be the result of an error.I also notice what may be 2 anti-virus programs running on your system. This can cause major problems as they compete for access to files, and they compete for access to system resources. I'd recommend turning one of them off immediately.I'd also suggest running this free, online scan (must use IE): http://safety.live.com/ It will scan for malware, clean your registry, delete your Temp files, and defrag your hard drive.

Hey all Over the course of the past few days my PC seems to be suffering from high memory usage What's interesting is that I found this thread on this same forum in which the OP was having the exact same issue as me The PC starts fine and remains fine while Memory Leak? in use but allowing it Memory Leak? to sit for long periods of time with no activity will cause memory to be eaten and unable to be released I checked for any aliases that the Win Ramnit virus may be hiding under but can't seem to find anything I'm more than willing to post any screenshots of my Task Manager and whatnot but I'll have to get back to you on it as it takes a bit longer to for a substantial amount of my memory to be eaten due to the fact that I have GB Feel free to ask Memory Leak? for any screenshots in the meantime so I know what to grab Has anyone else other than Walter Odim experienced this problem

A:Memory Leak?

You have 32 GB installed physical RAM?

Please provide a tasklist. Bring up an Admin CMD prompt & paste:

A Notepad will open. Save it and attach to next post.

Check out Resource Monitor (RESMON). Click on Memory tab; click on Working Set to sort in descending order. What items are using the most memory & how much?

About five days ago I began having problems with my physical memory leaking from start-up I'm running Vista Home Premium on Leak Memory a Dell Inspiron notebook G hard drive and G RAM When I open task manager right at start-up I have around mb of free physical memory but over the course of - minutes that amount drains to about - free mb At the time of the quot memory Memory Leak drain quot my CPU is running at and once I've lost most of my physical memory the CPU goes down to about with intermittent spikes of up to I also noted that I have instances of svchost exe and when I run the resource monitor during the quot drain quot it is svchost using most of the memory disk and CPU I've tried running the memory diagnostic tool disk clean-up disk defragmentor full system virus scan Dell system scan two different PC file registry clean-up programs and restarting my computer after disabling ALL start-up programs w msconfig on top of contacting Dell twice The only time I don't have this memory issue is when I run my computer on safe mode If someone has any idea what could be causing this please let me know

A:Memory Leak

Your pc is just caching your unused memory. It is not leaking dude. Vista manages memory differently then previous operating systems. Hmn let me put this into words - Vista is designed to use your free unused memory into a cache called "super fetch" which in turn allows you to make use of all your ram instead of it being wasted. What "super fetch" does is it caches all of your frenquently used programs etc. into your unused memory. And of course we all know that ram works much much faster than a hard drive. It really does speed up your computer. And whenever you need that cached memory for lets say an application, Vista will make room for it instantly replacing the cache with your program. And over time Vista will study your computing habbits and cache the things you use more frenquently and not caching the things you do not. "Super fetch" is one of the many great features Vista has to offer.
