    Good. Disk imaging means you have a second chance without technical help in many circumstances.

    Replacing a failed disk becomes relatively trivial.

    You can recover from ransomware (have you seen the news?); images act as a full backup from which you can retrieve files; with a Laplink product you can even use your image to automatically set up your new PC or clean installed OS with your programs and settings.

    So, I was wrong. My problem hasn't been solved. My page file continues to fill up to nearly 30gb and then my ram maxes out, I get out of memory errors, and the pc crashes. Nothing I do has either revealed the culprit, or fixed my problem for long. I have tried every fix that I can find online in every forum, to no avail. I am at my wit's end with this thing and really need some help to get this stupid thing to run right again. Anyone have any ideas? I'm happy to give you any information that you might need to help me get this thing running right again. Just let me know what you need.

    And, yes, I installed reflect, backed everything up, and restored it to the beginning, but still have the problem. Neither iolo system shield or windows defender has found any kind of virus in my system. I have run many scans with no viruses found...

    Memory Leaks
    E.g.
    How To Find And Stop A Memory Leak In Windows
    Memory leak - Wikipedia
    Overview of Memory Leaks

    I don't have any experience in diagnosing this, but basically think of a badly written program that leaves stuff in memory it doesn't remove when they are no longer needed. You mission, should you decide to accept it, is to try to identify which program, driver or whatever, is responsible for this leak.

    Use a process of elimination.
    I said previously - leave your PC running overnight in Safe Mode - see if all is ok.
    In Safe Mode, minimal extra programs and drivers are running- basically it should be just the OS (but isn't always in practice).

    Have you ever done that?

    If ok, move on to a clean boot.

    If ok, progressively enable services and startups.There are tools published which are supposed to help with this.I have no experience of them.
    E.g. (and purely as an example- it's very old)

    It appears the culprit may have been hwinfo64. I like to keep an eye on my hardware since it's a 24/7 pc. Hwinfo is customizable and monitors everything that needs to be monitored. However, it would appear that there is an issue running it 24/7 on windows 10 cu. I'm currently searching for a different one that has all the same info, but it isn't easy. There are tons of cpu or gpu monitoring programs, but none that I have found cover every little piece of hardware in one place. Oh well. Thanks again for your assistance!

    I use 8GadgetPack myself, with the Network Meter and CPU Usage gadgets running all the time on the desktop. CPU Usage integrates Core Temp and also shows temps for all CPU cores therein as well. That's all I need to see constantly. For the rest, I use Gabe Topala's excellent (but for-a-fee licensed System Information for Windows Pro, aka SIW Pro) to grab hardware and sensor data when it's needed. It doesn't have to run all the time (nor does hwinfo64, IMHO).
    HTH,

    PS. Here's what it looks like at runtime:
