Windows 10: Desktop using 23,9/24GB of RAM Solved

    Desktop using 23,9/24GB of RAM


    So recently I installed an additional 16GB of RAM in my pc and everything was runnning fine. I upgraded to Windows 10 and installed all the programs I use etc.
    Now my pc was always using around 30% of the ram, however it soon became 60% and now it is using 99% from startup.

    Here are some steps I already performed with the results from those steps:

    • I ran a virus scan, with nothing showing up
    • I checked my startup programs, nothing wrong with it in my eyes
    • I ran sfc /scannow which showed up with nothing aswell
    • I ran Kasperky AntiRootKit, nothing showed up
    • I ran Malwarebytes which showed up clean
    • I ran SuperAntiSpyware professional, nothing showed up(except some cookies which are deleted now
    • I ran WPR -cancel in CMD, No trace profiles running



    The programs that start when my PC boots are:

    I hope anyone of you can help me find a solution to this. I know windows10 leverages memory better than windows 7, but it shouldnt be 100% use even when idle.

    Here is a screenshot of my resource monitor:

    So this time I rebooted my pc after all of these steps:

    • I ran a virus scan, with nothing showing up
    • I checked my startup programs, nothing wrong with it in my eyes
    • I ran sfc /scannow which showed up with nothing aswell
    • I ran Kasperky AntiRootKit, nothing showed up
    • I ran Malwarebytes which showed up clean
    • I ran SuperAntiSpyware professional, nothing showed up(except some cookies which are deleted now
    • I ran WPR -cancel in CMD, No trace profiles running

    And one of them fixed is, as I now booted with 1.9GB in use, which climbed to 3.8gb when all programs were started(Chrome, Razer Synaps etc etc)

    Will update if pc keeps up this boot cycle and I will leave my pc on for tonight and post the results tomorrow.

    Disable every program and see if it helps. Look at the picture you posted and almost every program has high start-up impact
