    ntoskrnl (System) is using 250MB/Memory regularly -Cant get rid of it


    Any help would be so appreciated. I've tried everything I can think of to get rid of it but that isn't much. I cant change the permissions in the system folder of course so I can't seem to change or fix this in any way I have tried. I can hear it running on my computer, right now using 236MB according to task manager. Makes my PC painfully slow its almost impossible to do anything. Started about a week after Windows 10 install, I'm about to go back to Windows 7 as I am afraid if I reinstall 10 it will do the same thing. I have uploaded the zipped file as requested, as well as a screen shot of my task manager and the properties window which I know probably does not do much good. Thank you

    Hi Have you checked for malware?? You might scan your PC with Malwarebytes!
    ntoskrnl is needed but is also a place that malware likes to hide.

    Memory is not your problem for pete sake. Your CPU is at 75+%. RAM usage is not slowing you down. Leave RAM, ALONE!

    I would be more concerned that with minimal programs working your CPU is running at 75 %. Of course it could just be that your screenshot coincided with a spike but still.

    Also you haven't filled out your system specs properly so it's difficult to help you.
    Can you fill out your system specs so I have a better idea what I'm working with?

    If you don't know the values, please download Speccy from Piriform and install. It will tell you everything you need to know:
    Speccy - Standard

    Also, please run MBAM if you haven't already.

    I wasn't having any problems before I installed Windows 10, a few days ago I did a new clean install and wiped
    everything same problem is coming up again. When I google it I find that others have had the same issue or
    are having it but no real good solutions... Thanks for your help

    Thank you TairikuOkami. That may have worked. I know that before I reinstalled windows 10 the other
    day I was having an issue that I could not do anything with my HomeGroup because the P2Psvd.dll was
    not functioning and could not be repaired. We'll see I will post if I have further issues with it. I'm going to mark this as solved
    because it instantly is not acting as it was before, I believe it worked. Thanks again
