    Memory usage being up at 80 -100% (Help)


    Hi. A couple of days after Windows 10 was released i upgraded from previous Windows 8.1. I had a problem with windows 8/8.1 with my Disk usage always going up to 100%, this problem carried over to windows 10 luckily so did the easy fix for it. (For me disabling Background intelligence Transfer service and Superfecth seems to do the trick)

    However lately I've gotten a new problem, with the memory usage being at 80% up to 100%.

    Memory usage being up at 80 -100%-memmory-100.pngMemory usage being up at 80 -100%-83-.png
    It seems to be hidden processes so does anyone know how i can find the source of this?
    I tried downloading Windows driver kit (The latest one i could find was for Win8/8.1) and poolmon was able to show me the hidden processes.

    However when trying to identify the processes xperf doesn't seem to want to work with me

    I'm not that good on this kind of stuff and all this was just me reading and trying out methods that i found when looking for help.
    So does anyone know how i can fix this?

    try using this command, run cmd as administrator first
    Code:
    cd drivers
    hit enter, then
    Code:
    findstr /s tagname *.*
    hit enter again. wait for a second, it'll display what *.sys file(s) is causing the memory leak

    How long should it take for it to respond?

    nonononono it's not like that. replace "tagname" with the 'tag' of process in poolman.exe which eating a lot of resource. You see your Poolman.exe screenshot? look at the "tag" section, there are lots of "something" using a lot of your resources. for example, "Proc". So replace it with the tag name, it will be like this.
    Code:
    findstr /s Proc *.*

    it seems that you forgot to enter this command
    Code:
    cd drivers
    ....before entering findstr command. it will change the search location on C:\System32\drivers to locate *.sys file(driver files), not .dll files as shown on your screenshot.

    open your explorer, navigate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers . find that/those file(s). Right click > properties. look at the detail tab. It will tell you what driver is this file. Update the driver, if available.

    oh, and make sure the tag name you are looking for is the "non-paged" one. not the paged one. Look at the poolmon.exe screenshot.

    I did i and i found the drivers so how do i update them? All iv'e been familiar with is hardware that you navigate in the drivers in the device manager. And should i do this for all the .sys files i see here or is there one specific i'm looking for?

    And i'm not sure what you mean with the paged and none-paged one. Should i not do this to the processes that poolmon categorized as "Nonp"?
