    Screenshot by Lightshot
    This is after 30-60min of having the computer running.
    Late last night it was at almost 6GB!!
    wtf is going on?
    i had Killer Networking - Home those drivers for me e2200 network card, but installed generic once because ive seen that the killer drivers leak ram.
    But this shit is still happening

    Suggestions how i can diagnos this?
    Only thing that helps atm is reboot... and that just helps for a short while

    Did you ever get an answer to this as I have similar problems. Can get to the point of nearly 100% RAM usage after a few hours. I'm using Killer Network driver, do you really think that is a problem?

    I have the same nic. I use just the driver and not the software. My MB is MSI and they offer the download that way. Check yours, Gigabybyte it looks like from you pic and see if they offer just the driver.

    Thanks for that, I think that you have hit it on the head. It appears that running Killer Network drivers together with Windows Network Data Usage Monitor (Ndu) causes the problem. I have stopped Ndu but will try your suggestion as well. Memory usage is still around 25% after 2+ hours of Utorrent open.
    One for Microsoft to bug fix I think

    Good to hear it helped you. One of the first things I researched when getting my MB. Decided right away to nix that software and just use the driver.
