    explorer.exe uses all virtual memory, Resource-Exhaustion Detector


    Had this problems twice, with no clue what the cause is.
    It has happened when writing to a HDD so i guess it's that process that goes awry.
    The two were very different and a long while between each other (weeks probably).

    Windows successfully diagnosed a low virtual memory condition. The following programs consumed the most virtual memory: explorer.exe (4100) consumed 26833801216 bytes, mpc-hc64.exe (8684) consumed 434368512 bytes, and chrome.exe (15320) consumed 429498368 bytes.
    No clue what the reason is, was thinking it might be my overclock, but it's hard to identify as it's so rare and random.

    These, however i am starting to think it might be my overclock still, even though it should be stable,
    have had some very weird issues i can't always reproduce, like Audio Glitches etc, but no BSOD, so frustrating;(

    On what drive is the page file?

    If you think it is due to overclocking, I would remove the overclocking.

    It's automatic, but on the SSD (C: ) drive.

    Problem is i can't reproduce the issue so it's so hard to confirm it's the overclock,
    my stress testing all seems fine (Prime95 Blend, 12hour 7000mb (out of 8gb)).
    It's such a weird issue as well, i mean why does Explorer eat all virtual memory, why not any other application.

    EDIT:

    Trying to get DISM restorehealth thingy to work, but no matter how i do it i doesn't detect the source.
    Tried both esd and wim versions;(

    What is the exact command you use for restorehealth?

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:F:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess
    That one, with F being my drive.
    Also tried replacing wim with esd on the esd version.

    There are a few ways to resolve the restorehealth problem, but what files are corrupted exactly?

    I don't know if anything is corrupt or not, just that sfc /scannow fails, but i don't know if that is the cause of my problems.
