    Wouldn't that show the same as System Explorer?

    I don't know, does it? If you could confirm this it would be nice to know that there is no bug or something in the program you use

    I'll check and let you know. Wow! Thats weird Axe0, Task Manager shows a completly different story..

    Task Manager shows Cyberfox burning up the memory now instead of Edge. I cleared cookies and cash on Edge and went back to the Motortrends website and below is what I got. So System Explorer and Task Manager are not agreeing with each other from what I can tell....

    Maybe all this is normal? I have read here at the forum, and other forums that memory is meant to be used completely, so maybe this is normal. My CPU at 99% though, I hope that is normal too.

    Taskmanager I find is the best to check memory, CPU & disk usage

    What that program showed is not normal, but at least you know that Edge isn't using that much as that program shows

    Triple boot - Win 10 Pro, Win 10 Pro Insider (2) - (and a sprinkling of VMs)

    I hate to mention the obvious, but Shutup10 may be in a P*&^%ing contest with the OS. Try telling Shutup10 to shut up (turn it completely off) and see what happens.

    Sorry for not getting back to this thread in a while. I thought of the same thing Tomcat. Shutup 10 shutting things down that Windows 10 doesn't want shut down, causing a big fight.

    Lately though, even with Shutup 10 running, things have quieted down. I have Edge on MSN website with a video playing and Cyberfox with 3 tabs open and TBird running and memory is hovering around 175,000, which I can certainly live with. So maybe it was Edge updating itself or something, not sure. Just glad its quieted down.

    @axe0
    I agree, I think Task Manager is the most accurate. I may just get rid of System Explorer, since I don't use all the other functions on it anyway, just the processes, which I can do from Task Manager. Plus, System Explorer itself puts a slight load on memory when its running too.

    Glad to hear things have quieted down. Maybe the AE update helped a bit.....
