    High Memory Usage

    Hello, I have a question.

    The system process (ntoskrnl.exe) using excessive amount of RAM. So, how do I fix that?

    If you are still having a problem you might try ESET online scanner. I solved high memory usage by finding a virus that no other scanner found.

    I had this issue where it would stay around 100-200mb while idle and jump to around 2gigs when I launched some games, I found out around reddit a service called superfetch is bugged and since it was disabled it hasn't budged past .1mb.

    If you want to try it yourself go to services- right click properties on Superfetch- under startup switch to disabled and reboot. And by the off chance you have a killer network driver, I heard those can cause this issue as well if its not updated.
