    You have multiple versions of JRE installed, uninstall all and install the latest 121, if you use it at all.

    This is a known issue since 10 was released related to CPU/HDD/memory usage.
    There are various suggestions starting with disabling Superfetch, Windows tips and such.

    Roadblaster, the approach I would take is to find some way way to scan the exact memory allocation, or attach some debugger, to that specific System process and go from there. Or use some system-wide monitor like ProcMon and filter it to that System Monitor.

    Yeah but to be honest this is the old win10 Version 10.0.10240. So I'm due for an upgrade anyway.

    Yes, I have had something called "Program" left runing from a bit of freeware which did no uninstall it.

    Looks like you should check all the "Start Up" software via google to see if you can turn it all off, as looks like a lot of bloatware.

    Still need to see Details for which programs are consuming memory.

    Try autoruns to remove the software you can not find:

    Oh nothing's running that I'm not aware of there. It all just adds up over the months.
    Here's my processes. Been running for 10 days, wow.


    So in conclusion, after this very helpful thread, I ended up reinstalling windows, upgrading it to 14393 and solved.
