    Windows Explorer High CPU and Increasing Memory Usage


    I have an issue with my clean 1809 install (and also it happened before the clean install, and i decided to try a clean one due to it).

    After a few minutes, the Windows Explorer process starts increasing its memory usage and also CPU is around 10%; i'm up to 2gb usage right now..

    Anyone knows what is the cause?
    Could it be Intel RST latest driver installment?

    Using latest drivers from my motherboard page with latest windows updates.

    Thanks in advance.

    What does Task Manager show you as far as RAM usage?
    CLick on Details then Working set size.

    Issue does not seem to be reproducible once reverting back to previous version of Intel RST.
    Seems like either the wrong version was posted on the ASUS PRIME Z370-A motherboard page and its incompatible, or there is something generaly wrong with this version (either from ASUS packaging or Intel originated).

    I will continue discussion there since it might be motherboard vendor specific..
