    Edge and Chrome memory leak ? Memory usage 80-97%

    Now i'm using windows 10 but I had this problem also when using windows 8.1pro.
    The windows 81.pro I have the original dvd here and I tried few times to make clean install.
    Also windows 10 I got it free online and the same problem.

    For example now i'm using Edge I have two windows opened in one I have 10 tabs open and in the other I have like 20 tabs open. But the problem happen also with two windows and 6 tabs open in each one.

    The problem is that once I start Edge or Chrome on windows 81.pro or windows 10 I see in Task Manager that the memory usage is about 60%. Then after some times without doing anything special the memory usage raise to 80-85% then ine many cases also to 96-97-98%.

    Now and in most of the times I have in the background a game running in this case battlefield bad company 2 that take about 600-800MB of memory.
    But it happen even if I close the game.

    The only way to push the memory usage down is in the task manager to shut down the Edge/Chrome and all it's tabs.
    Then to start the browser again.
    I tested my pc with memtest I don't have any memory errors.
    I don't have any blue screens. Can't figure out where is the problem.
    My brother have like 10-15 years old pc then my one with 4GB ram and he can open like 20 tabs of chrome without a problem.

    While the memory usage raise to 85-98% everything is running slow all the pc is slow almost freezing.

    Before finding a fix I was wondering if there is a way to dig and find what cause the problem.
    And also if there is any fix already i would like to know about since i couldn't find anything yet.

    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.
