    Insane memory usage, can't find leak.


    I've been trying to figure out what this memory leak is, but it doesn't seem to be a driver issue or any malware. This only started happening when I installed windows 10.

    I have tried various resources trying to find what it using all the ram but no luck, and RAMMap hasn't been working for me, assuming it doesn't work on windows 10 yet.

    I've had my computer on for a majority of the day and i started at only 3GB usage, which is about the normal usage, but over time RAM just starts to get eaten up.

    Also Sometimes when I try to shutdown my PC, it just gives a quick error that I can't read (Only appears for a split second or sometimes not at all but I hear the error notification on the speakers) and restarts windows and I can't seem to find the error log...

    Your paged and non paged pool is high (2 GB in total). Those are usually caused by device drivers generating interruptions, but they generally increase as more apps are opened.

    To see how much memory you (the user) use compared to the whole RAM use, just go to users tab. If your total use compared to whole is just too low, i.e. Windows idle RAM usage is around 4 GB or so when you close all programs, there's a memory leak within the system drivers/start up programs etc. IMO a typical idle RAM usage would be around 2 GB when running for a while or around 1.5 GB or less after just booting up.
