So I recently purchased a pair of Bluetooth headphones, and I was using them last night until for some reason they disconnected from the PC and couldn't get them to reconnect. Within minutes, Windows told me I was low on memory, so I closed everything and launched Task Manager. Windows Audio Device Graph Isolation was using almost 5 GB of RAM and rising. I have 8 GB of RAM, and I've NEVER used more than half that, even with heavy graphic-intensive games. I tried closing the process, and it just kept popping right back up, at around 1 GB of RAM, and continuously eating up memory. I restarted, and immediately checked Task Manager. Same thing. Eating up memory. So I suddenly realized that there was a correlation between my malfunctioning Bluetooth connection and the audiodg acting up, so I removed the headphones from the settings, and almost immediately, the RAM consumption dropped.

That scared the living crap out of me. So now that I know what happened, and the cause of it, what can I do to make sure that this issue doesn't happen again? Is this a known problem with Bluetooth audio? I searched Google and found a lot of results, but most pertained to, well, Skype. And these were from last year. So you'd think that would have been patched by now, right? And it doesn't seem to relate to my problem, either, as the consensus among those affected was to restart Skype. But I don't USE Skype, hahaha. So I'm a bit confused as to whether this is a freak occurrence or not.
