RAM Leak Win8.1_64x (Memory Leak) + Picture.

Q: RAM Leak Win8.1_64x (Memory Leak) + Picture.

Just got on the computer now, and suddenly everything seems to be slow, I checked the memory and found out that some program is using 94% of the memory, when I was looking for the program I found out that no program is using that amount of memory, 200 at most.

I downloaded RAMmap to map out the memory, and found out that about 94% of the memory is Nonpaged Pool (unallocated?)
. Please see the image below:

As you can see the memory leak clearly.
This is a new PC with windows installed a few days ago.
Win8.1 64x (all up to date) intel i7 haswell, z87g45 Gaming, 8Gram, gtx650ti boost, 128G ssd.

Preferred Solution: RAM Leak Win8.1_64x (Memory Leak) + Picture.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: RAM Leak Win8.1_64x (Memory Leak) + Picture.

Here is a second picture, after a computer restart, without firefox it gets to 15% although there is no application who is running on 15% (of 8G, is about 1,000MB of process, which in the picture you can see that it cant be). - maybe it's ok maybe not, in both cases there is a leak as you can see in the first post.

It is a device (tablet and mobile phones) with this assembly 6.2.8175.winmain.111217-1215 will be holding a Sinovski Steve (Steven Sinofsky) and Steve Ballmer (Steven Ballmer) at Consumer Electronics Show CES 2012 that will take place from 10 to 13 in January 2012

According to a MS China employee, the sign-off of the public beta is expected around mid-Feb, and refering to the WZOR schedule, and also MS has officially announced that the beta release is in late-Feb., don't expect any official release until then. Rumors were flying around that a leak of 8175 is expected soon.

Source: Windows 8 news coverage here - Neowin Forums - Page 6

Some bugs of build 8175
1) Win+R, then type msconfig, go in startup tab, and click on "Open Task Manager" and you get a "Task Manager has stopped working"
2) In IE10, go on youtube, open 3 tabs with a video, get a BSOD.
3) Touch Keyboard is crazy, and if you do a fast typing, he crash.
4) Software issue: just launch cpuZ make crash your OS.

Source: News/Discussions on Windows 8 Beta (Sources: WinUnleaked & others) - Page 81

If it leaks would you try it before the feb beta ?

As you know i wouldnt resist to a new build...lol...

Hi everyone,

Just recently, I've been having major problems with memory usage. Right when I reboot, all processes in my taskmanager are at normal, with the majority of programs running at 5-6 megs. But as I run a few programs, the memory usage of the majority of processes suddenly jump up to 30-40 megs.

For example, foobar2000, which usually takes 5 megs, now takes 44 megs. But if I close it and restart the program, it's back the normal 4-5 meg level, but it gradually consumes more and more memory.

Could this be the result of a virus? I ran Symantec and Spysweeper and came up with nothing (and even these scans are running at much lower speeds than normal).

CPU usage is also normal, just a memory problem.

Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Possible memory leak?

Read other 11 answers

Reading around I thought IE eliminated it's memory leaks but I definitely have it when I use IE8.

I typically have three windows of IE8 open and within one will have multiple tabs, maybe five or six at the most. Over time memory usage definitely grows and is not reclaimed as tabs or even windows are closed. Only way I can reclaim memory is by closing all windows and putting computer to sleep. When I awaken it and start again memory usage is back to it's initial state. But then it will grow again as I use IE8. Seems to happen no matter what websites are visited so I don't think a specific site is causing the problem.

Is it a problem somewhere in my system or is it just how IE8 really is?

I don't have a good start time on this. I noticed it last weekend.

I am running Win7 x64, release version from MSDN. If I leave my machine on for 8+ hours, when I log back in it is using 5GB of memory. I have 6GB installed.

I have confirmed no spyware or viruses. I checked processes using Task Manager and Processes Explorer and nothing is using over 150MB and total was just less than 2GB when adding them all up.

It isn't making a whole lot of sense. What could be using RAM but not reporting its usage other then the OS?

Just in case it matters the machine is a 2008 Mac Pro, dual Xeon, 6GB RAM. Antivirus is AVG (which I have removed while I am not using the machine to see if that is the memory hog).

Any thoughts?

i pretty much have the same issue, except mine doesnt use that muchof my RAM. I have 4 gigs installed and i notice the longer i leave my machine running the more ram it eats up. It can go up to 2 gigs with nothing running even though when i boot up it only uses about half that.

What version are u running? Im on RC 7100

Got a WinME box. I just added 512 MB RDRAM (Kingston), now have a total of 768 MB. GeForce4 Ti 440 video card.

If the computer has been running for a while, and I put in a DVD, the player tells me I can not run the DVD and I shoudl turn down teh resolution. I get a problem when I try to run the Madden 2003 game (tells me that there is not enough memory). If I reboot, everything works just fine.

I did not have this problem before I added the RAM, and I did not install anything new when I put in the RAM.

Any ideas about how to deal with this? Any good apps to find the memory leak?

Hi, recently I've noticed my comp has been having issues with slowing down a lot after being on for a day, I decided to start looking into the processes yesterday and noticed 1 svchost.exe process using 1.7gb of ram, about 8 hours later it was using 2.6gb of ram. After rebooting the readings went down to a more normal looking level with the physical memory use while a couple of programs are running being about 50% (my system has 4gb of ram)
I have been keeping task manager open and watching the memory usage, most of the svc processes increase slowly with occasional small dips but the increase is very slow, there is however 1 process that is increasing by about 1mb every 3-5 minutes. This process is the one involving network programs (winhttpautoproxy, wdiservicehost, nsi, netprofm, fontcache and fdphost)
I hear all these processes are linked to server 2008 which i didn't think was installed and thought wasn't needed on a standard home computer.
I double checked and ran a malware scan and a virus scan which both came back clear, so i have no idea what is causing such a rapid memory drain.

Got to the conclusion that it might be a memory leak. Looking at the task mamager, every time I open a page, the amount of available physical memory goes down. Then later, in 10 or 15 minutes when I open the task manager again, I have no numbers and the computer acts up. Is it a memory leak?, Can I fixing it just changin the memory stick?, Please help.

I recently formatted my hard drive on my laptop, and started FRESH. I have my D Drive mostly used for storage, and my C: drive as the main drive for Programs. D is in Fat32 format, C: is in NTFS. I recently am running into what seems to me to be numerous svchost.exe openings and they seem to be sucking up a lot of memory, even when I'm not online (disconnected from internet).

I have run Spybot Search & Destroy, and Ad-Aware SE (which I keep up to date) and have removed any problems. I have run an online scan at http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ and I have no viruses detected. I have done a full scan using my Norton Anti-Virus, which I keep up to date, and nothing. I have done all my Windows XP Service Pack updates (including SP2) and Critical and Security updates for all application software.

It just seems to be spiking, my CPU usage 38%-78%-100% and the only thing I can think of, after shutting down all unused applications, is that it may be a memory leak somewhere.

Any ideas? Here is my log attached....

If I exit some of the files in my program tray it sems to free up memory and then I can download again or enter into task manager. Seems that something consumes memory and doesnt release it. Any clues?

Hi ijusth !

You can check the memory and cpu usage of all running processes via the task manager, provided you're able to view it when the problem occurs. I suppose that if you run the task manager beforehand you'll still be able to bring it in front by using Alt+Tab.

In the task manager (processes tab), go to view => add columns and check the box in front of virtual memory. Tell us if you see any process taking most of your memory or cpu usage when the problem happens.

i have been playing Battlestar Galactica Online for several weeks now. i've noticed that after playing for a few hours, sometimes less, that i start to have lag issues. every few seconds i get frame freeze, it does not make the game unplayable, but it is annoying. after researching it, a few of the other players say its do to memory leak. from every thing i have read this does seem to be the problem. after jumping around the games grid and multiple clicks and keyboard commands, it seems to use up all available free memory and does not release it until you reboot. now thats the problem. i want to know if there is a way to free up this memory without rebooting the game. its inconvenient to stop playing so i can fix this problem. any suggestions?

A:memory leak?

you could try running programs like freemem pro in the background and every time you get the issue you could just ALT+TAB back to desktop and run it

You could also hold down CTRL+ALT+DEL together and terminate irrelevant programs running in the background prior to starting your game.

You may find that if it's just this game that the developers will release a patch at some point to cure it.
It's doubtful that it will be a hardware issue.

A:memory leak

As discussed previously, it sounds like a resource leak, but the real questions are "what's leaking?" and "can it be worked around without (re)coding the component in question?". This is all assuming you're already on the latest version of all the components involved, which tends to have a way of resolving (embarrassing) known resource leaks

The best way to troubleshoot is to start a Perfmon log straight after a reboot, and to keep it running until the "freeze" symptom manifests itself. Given it can take days, the trick is to keep the log file from growing to a monstrous size. That's done by being selective about what's being monitored, and how often perfmon records a "sample".

As a suggestion, create a Perfmon counter log to record all instances of all counters under the following objects:


Set the sample interval to say 2 minutes, and kick off the log soon after the next scheduled reboot. Stop the perfmon log only once you're confident that the machine is clearly being all weird in the particular way which you wish to analyse.

If you need more info on how to create the perfmon log, just yell. Ditto if you'd like assistance in analysing it. There's nothing particularly personal in there other than the hostname of your server and the names of the processes running on it.

Hey all,

Over the course of the past few days my PC seems to be suffering from high memory usage. What's interesting is that I found this thread on this same forum in which the OP was having the exact same issue as me. The PC starts fine and remains fine while in use, but allowing it to sit for long periods of time with no activity will cause memory to be eaten and unable to be released. I checked for any aliases that the Win32/Ramnit virus may be hiding under but can't seem to find anything. I'm more than willing to post any screenshots of my Task Manager and whatnot but I'll have to get back to you on it as it takes a bit longer to for a substantial amount of my memory to be eaten due to the fact that I have 32GB. Feel free to ask for any screenshots in the meantime so I know what to grab.

Has anyone else other than Walter Odim experienced this problem?

We are facing a problem with IE memory leak. In our application (intranet), we are using Ajax, servlets and in our client we are using lots of Javascript, DOM components & XML processing. The problem we are facing is every time when a page is opened, around 10MB of memory is increased in IE process thread (in Task Manager). When the page is closed only 3 or 4MB alone released. So, if the application is used for, say, 1 hour then the IE memory is increased to whopping 600MB and system crashes (IE couldn?t handle further requests).

The strange facts are, this is happening only for the last couple of months or so. In our network domain the environment is Windows XP with SP2 & IE 6. We tested the application in Windows 2000 and found that there it is working fine (around 80MB alone used and memory usage is stable). And also in one of the Windows XP with SP2 machine also the memory usage is stable. The application works fine in a different network domain with the same Windows XP with SP2 environment.

We suspect that some recent Windows patch is causing this problem. We rolled back recent Windows patches and tried to get it resolve but in vain. Have anyone faced similar problem? Is there anything like IE settings, Firewall settings could be a reason?

Can someone help me in this regard?

Hello everyone. I think my computer has a memory leak from the following symptoms: When I open task manager on my Windows 10 PC, I notice abnormally high system RAM usage, and the processes and details tabs don't show nearly enough total usage to justify 2.7 out of 8GB of system RAM being used. I have experienced BSODs with my PC for sometime, mostly during high-end gaming, and this has remained a constant variable from Windows 7 to my upgrade to Windows 10. When I analyze BSODs with bluescreenview, I notice that a recurring bug check string is IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, although I have seen others. ntoskrnl.exe is also often listed as a culprit driver. So, with all this in mind, do I have a memory leak, and if I don't, what is it? How do I fix whatever this is? UPDATE: I have tried to update drivers from Device Manager, and it said I already had the best drivers. I have run memtest in the past and found no issues with RAM.

I have 6Gb of DDR3 RAM and windows task manager tells me that 5.53gb of that is in use. When I add up the amount of memory that each process is consuming, it doesn't even reach half of a gigabyte. What is using my memory and how can I stop it?

A:Memory Leak?

How many processes are shown as running? Do you use any Torrent programs or peer-to-peer software? Also, open up your MSCONFIG file and see what is running from start-up. (START>ACCESSORIES>RUN....type "msconfig") Check the STARTUP tab. Post a screen shot of your startup selections if you like. Many processes are not needed at startup and you may just have a memory hog running in the background.

Good day.

I have Eset smart security installed

Hope someone can help

Exit FireFox before you leave and then re-open it when you get home. FireFox can remember your open tabs if needed.

My system seems to always show between 60-90% of RAM in use, but when I run resource monitor, I can only ever account for less than half of what it says is used. Is there something I'm missing here?
I added up every single process that is in the list, but still come up with a number much smaller that it says is being used.

A:Memory Leak

Hello Techies!

So I have a memory leak. It's an autocad app running on an xp machine. I know it's autocad generating the c++ error. There is a max of 4gb virtual memory.

All that being said I am at a loss as to how to FIX the memory leak. Do I uninstall and reinstall the app?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am drawing a total blank.

I've noticed recently that sometimes my Windows 8.1 system, when left running for a while gradually gets more sluggish.  It's noticeable in all applications - Firefox takes several seconds to switch between tabs, for example.  Memory usage becomes very high (sometimes more than 90%) with no actual applications open, apart from the background programs and services.  The only thing that successfully gets the system back to normal is a reboot.  The computer has also crashed sometimes when it has been in this high memory usage state - generally it crashes during waking up from sleep.
How would I go about diagnosing what was causing this?
I used Process Explorer and took a couple of screenshots.  They weren't much help to me as it's not obvious where the memory is being used in the second screenshot, but perhaps someone might know what to look for?  Or perhaps someone knows of a better tool for analysing memory use?
Thanks for any help you can give.
Shot 1 - Computer recently started, 24.7% physical memory use, just Firefox open (and background apps)

Shot 2 - Computer been running for a day or so, 78.1% physical memory use, no applications open.

The computer is a recent build, it has 8Gb DDR3 memory.  Happy to provide any other info required.

I don't know if any of that is helpful but I'm not too experinced with this issues so I thought it might be worth giving all the information I can.

What happens is when I load up the computer it instantly uses around 2 or more gb of my 8gb ram stick and it's a lot worse on games. It uses almost the full 8gb no matter which game im playing. I'm not sure what the problem is as this computer is no more than a week old and at first it worked perfectly. Can anyone help?

I'm not sure how long this has been going on, but after my computer is on a few hours and I've been messing around (WoW, witcher 3, browsing the internet, etc) my computer eventually gets stuck on a high memory usage % (over 90%+) even though I have closed like every program running. If I close a high memory program the memory usage will still stay on 80%+
And when I restart my computer, my memory usage is normal around 20%-30% but after a few hours it jumps back up to 90%+ and becomes very sluggish and laggy. 
I have run virus scans, malware scans, spyware scans, you name it, and no infections found.
I have included an imgur album that I created to show you my windows processes, memory usage, RAMMap results, etc.
As you can see on RamMap, when I went to processes, there are literally THOUSANDS of "Powercfg.exe" and "Conhost.exe" (Look how small the scroll bar is!) So this is obviously a problem, I don't know why there are thousands of zombie processes. I've never dealt with a memory leak before (if it even is one) and I would very much like help! Thank you fellows! These thousands of powercfg and conhosts are each 4 kb each... multiply that by 1000+ and you've got a problem.

This one is above my head (but most everything is ).

What I've found so far (correct me if wrong here):

System processes make a demand for physical/virtual memory, which gets proportioned out amongst both - ram and page file (hard disk space).

As processes 'process', allocations of memory to complete the process get deleted, and new memory gets requisitioned, until the process terminates, or idles down, and no memory requests are made by that process.

When the old allocations of memory are not released by a process, memory resources gets to the point that there's none left for continued processing by ANY process. Re-booting is a work-a-round. The system will shut down, even if left idle. I did that once, and had info file on the 'Error Shutdown', but I cannot find them where the error pop-up indicates. PROBABLY BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT SAVED, WITH NO MEMORY AVAILABLE AT SHUTDOWN.

I routinely get an error after so much 'processing', and data transfer between disks, that:
"Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service."

It's not a shortage of hdd space. If you post "The disk is probably full", without reading this detail, you'll show us alot about yourself).

Task Manager shows nothing under any tab. (if you post "Check Task manager", without reading this detail, you'll show us alot about yourself).

So, like 1 month ago my laptop started lagging (freezing, process "system" goes to like 30% cpu usage, my screen freezes, mouse jumps around etc.). I tracked down the process "system" and it lead me to "ntoskrnL.exe" which I researched and it said it was memory leak. So, I tried everything possible and what people were reccomending, which kinda made the freezes less but I still get them.Another thing I noticed is when I am playing a game in the case "Leage of Legends" my mouse freezes while the game is still running at 60 fps with no problem and the mouse then jumps where ever I moved it to (after like 2 seconds).I would really like to fix this and I would appreciate if someone can help me!

About five days ago I began having problems with my physical memory leaking from start-up. I'm running Vista Home Premium on a Dell Inspiron 1521 notebook, 160G hard drive and 2G RAM. When I open task manager right at start-up, I have around 700mb of free physical memory, but over the course of 2-3 minutes that amount drains to about 0-15 free mb. At the time of the "memory drain", my CPU is running at 99%, and once I've lost most of my physical memory the CPU goes down to about 3% with intermittent spikes of up to 90%. I also noted that I have 13 instances of svchost.exe, and when I run the resource monitor during the "drain" it is svchost using most of the memory, disk, and CPU. I've tried running the memory diagnostic tool, disk clean-up, disk defragmentor, full system virus scan, Dell system scan, two different PC file/registry clean-up programs, and restarting my computer after disabling ALL start-up programs w/ msconfig, on top of contacting Dell twice. The only time I don't have this memory issue is when I run my computer on safe mode. If someone has any idea what could be causing this, please let me know!

A:Memory Leak

Your pc is just caching your unused memory. It is not leaking dude. Vista manages memory differently then previous operating systems. Hmn let me put this into words - Vista is designed to use your free unused memory into a cache called "super fetch" which in turn allows you to make use of all your ram instead of it being wasted. What "super fetch" does is it caches all of your frenquently used programs etc. into your unused memory. And of course we all know that ram works much much faster than a hard drive. It really does speed up your computer. And whenever you need that cached memory for lets say an application, Vista will make room for it instantly replacing the cache with your program. And over time Vista will study your computing habbits and cache the things you use more frenquently and not caching the things you do not. "Super fetch" is one of the many great features Vista has to offer.

Hey guys.
I recently re-installed my Windows 8.1 on my SSD.
Installed drivers, updated them and everything is fine.
But I am having a slight problem with memory not sure if it's a memory leak?

Basically sitting here with Google chrome open with 2 tabs open and the default Windows 8.1 programs running. I do not understand how 2gb of memory is being used.
I also play a Massive Multiplayer Online game called Wildstar that uses up 2gb of memory because it's such a big game.
I feel as though there's something up with my PC and there's something missing?
Can anyone help, thanks!

A:Memory leak

I don't see anything unusual or a cause for concern.

Adding up items in the memory usage columns will never equal total usage. It was never intended that it would. The screenshot does not show the full process usage which will typically be much higher. There are also some very significant users of memory that are not processes, not all of which are shown by Task Manager.

For what you have running 2 GB usage on an 8 GB system does not seem at all unusual. Also understand that memory usage in a modern OS is highly dynamic. Current usage might seem high but that is only because there is currently no better us for the memory. Memory was designed to be used, not sit idle. If a large application requires more memory the current usage will be automatically trimmed back, drastically if necessary.

Memory management in any modern OS is highly complex, far more so than most people imagine.

Hi, a friend of mine sent me here to figure out what I could.I'm on a Sager NP5793 with Core 2 Duo 2.5ghz, 4gb RAM, a 512mb nVidia 9800M GTS, 320gb 7200rpm hard drive, and Vista Ultimate 64-Bit installed. It sits on a Notepal Infinite (small for a 17" widescreen, but the vents line up nicely) and I use a Logitech Cordless Mini Optical.I got this laptop less than a week ago, and the first thing I did after installing XP SP3 32-Bit and Vista 64-Bit was install all the drivers from the bundled CD from Sager. The current installed programs are Avast, Ccleaner, Firefox 3 (Plus Flash 10 and Java VM plugins), Foxit Reader, Diskeeper 2009, Itunes, Gtalk, Pidgin, Logitech SetPoint, Protector Suite QL(fingerprint reader), Speedfan, Nero 9, WinRAR, VLC, Speedfan, and a bunch of Source games.I've been noticing an average of 33% memory usage consistently, even when nothing is on. I thought it may have had something to do with the Aero theme, which shouldn't have had a problem considering my laptop's specs, but I disabled them to test, and my memory usage fell a whopping 2%.The Protector Suite QL (psqltray.exe) likes to eat memory randomly, sometimes growing to 500, but I've seen hundreds of reports about this and no one seems to know why it happens. I just end the process, and retain use of my fingerprint reader for logging in and unlocking the pc.One instance of svchost likes to claim about 100mb+ of my ram, which isn't much of an issue (I'm not too stingy). It has the Windows Drive... Read more

Yeah, I know, that one too but I'm referring to the one in my computer.

Normally, my memory usage would go from 10-12% of 32GB to no more than 20-30% by the end of the week when I normally would do my weekly reboot. Recently, it's really gone nuts. I might get to 20-30% in as little as one day. I did my last reboot this morning at 4 AM and now?10 PM?it's already up to 25%. I installed several programs around the same time the memory use started to escalate?two gadgets, Crystal Disk Info, and the programs associated with my TV tuners (SiliconDust HDHomeRun Extend)?and activated Windows Media Center. I eliminated the two gadgets and Crystal Disk Info to see if they were the culprits (they but need to keep the TV tuners' programs (although they aren't running and haven't been run in several days) and WMC. How can I find the memory leak?

(Edit: I'm having trouble uploading some screen shots. In the time I've been fight with it?15 minutes or so, my memory use has gone up to 28%).

A:Memory Leak

Since you've got Process Explorer on your system - use it to identify what processes are running under that particular svchost.exe process (PID 992) Once you find what's running beneath it, let us know and we'll be able to move on with more stuff to do. (the easiest way to get the info is to hover your mouse over the svchost.exe process - then the program will pop up a list of services that are running under that process).Are you performing any debug routines? I see that mdm.exe is running - this can be a result of a manual debug, or can be the result of an error.I also notice what may be 2 anti-virus programs running on your system. This can cause major problems as they compete for access to files, and they compete for access to system resources. I'd recommend turning one of them off immediately.I'd also suggest running this free, online scan (must use IE): http://safety.live.com/ It will scan for malware, clean your registry, delete your Temp files, and defrag your hard drive.
