    Big memory leak problem.


    hey i know that this is a problem that many many people have asked. But i cant seem to find a solution that works for me.

    My memory would spike till im using 98-99% memory whilst doing mundane things like watching youtube. One of the solutions was that Killer Network Manager (which i had) was causing the issue. Following their advice, i removed the driver and reinstalled the one without the bloatware. That seemed to solve it for awhile but just today i noticed it came back. While poking around i noticed several weird things that i haven't seen on other places (maybe im bad at searching forgive me).
    1. i have a 16 gb ddr3 ram and the PC rightfully detects it as such. But when i had processes like Minecraft running, it showed me i was using aproximately 1.8gb to run it. BUT when i changed it to display as a percentage it showed me that its using 66% of my ram.
    2. i noticed that in my memory tab under performance in the task manager, it shows that i have something called non-paged pool of a whopping 8.9gb! I have a feeling its not supposed to be that high but im not very sure.

    Hope if anyone has any insights they could help me.
    P.S Oh and everytime i turn off my pc it says plugin-container.exe has crashed breakpoint exceeded. I doubt its got to with the memory but just thought id post it too

    The problem is the Non-paged pool. The value of 8.4 GB is many times a reasonable value. Typically it will be less than the Paged pool. Problems like this are usually caused by a device driver. Sorry, I can't help with that.

    Hmmmm, i just did a restart and the non-paged pool is 9.2 gb. Is there no way to find out which driver is the culprit?

    Update: I found this site: Memory leak in Windows 8.1 with Killer E2200 and Windows Network Data Usage Monitoring | Blue Blue Wave and tried it out. i screen shot the crap outta everything i was doing cus editing registry yaknow... But my Non-Paged pool is like 140mb now! and my usage is like 15% (at startup. Not sure if normal?) HOPEFULLY
    everything is fixed now. Will update when i am certain again.

    PS. if someone could tell me if the registry i edited would cause any adverse effects on my PC that'd be great! thanks! <3

We need a leak!
As in a leaked alpha build or something? It must be "by penalty of firing squad" at Microsoft for anybody that leaks anything about Windows 9? I wonder how far they really are in the development stage?
