Memory usage high, CPU usage low, not sure why

Question: Memory usage high, CPU usage low, not sure why

First off, I have been advised to start a new thread in this forum, as a previous thread in a different forum, from this site, regarding this issue was not completely resolved. See link: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/318854/physical-memory-increases-to-98-over-a-few-days/Here's what's happening. Upon booting up, it seems to take a bit too long to even to get to the Vista logo; then, when booted up, the harddrive seems to be running constantly for about an hour or so, yet nothing is loading;lastly, when the computer is on for a few days at a time, the physical memory seems to increase, eventually getting to anywhere from 75% to 90+%, yet I don't have to use the computer to do this - it can just be on and maybe just have Outlook running.Specs:OS: Vista Home Premium SP2 (x64)Processor: Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q9300 2.5GhzRAM: 4GbFree Space: 244Gb free/465Gb total

Preferred Solution: Memory usage high, CPU usage low, not sure why

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.)

Hello everyone, I've been having a very weird problem recently, in which I BELIEVE is involving high physical memory usage. Sometimes I will be doing things such as playing a game, or watching a stream, and my computer will run fine for a little while. But at random times, my computer will majorly slow down and sometimes even crash. If it doesn't crash, sometimes it will get so slow to the point where I have to hold down the power button and manually shut it down. Every time my computer slows down I notice it is using a TON of physical memory. It's actually happening right now. My computer is going very slow and it's using 6.22 GB memory out of 8. There are no big programs running right now, so I don't understand why it's being slow. I hope someone is able to help. Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Update: I just tried to open chrome, and the computer froze completely. It would not unfreeze. After leaving it frozen for a minute or two, the screen went black. This is becoming very frustrating.

Answer:Very high physical memory usage, no high usage programs running

Post a screenshot of Task Manager - Performance tab when the problem occurs.

Hijack log below

Two weeks ago my Quark 7 stopped working - it will start and come up with the splash screen, but then will not go any further - a list of processes shows it's running at 50 cpu usage and 78944 memory usage. I have tried uninstalling reinstalling and have ran Norton's Antivirus, Spybot Search and Destroy and CCleaner to no avail. I have attached my HiJack log below.

The main programs that I use daily (and yes Quark is one of them) are the following

Adobe Photoshop CS3, ACDSee 9, Outlook express, Quark 7.0, Internet Explorer, Dreamweaver 8

Thank you for taking the time - I'm pretty frustrated!

Ok, I am literally KILLING myself over this!

I installed Windows 7 64Bit over XP around a month ago and it was so good that I recommended it to my brother who was previously on XP too. We got him a copy of the 32bit version as he has only 2gb of memory, and he installed it on his machine. However, he constantly had high CPU and RAM usage (Even though no programs were obviously taking it all up in his task manager) and it was making his computer sluggish and slow. Everything was freezing and hanging and it was a nightmare.

I spent a day looking all over the net to find out the problem, but could not fix it at all, no matter what the hell I tried. So he reverted back to Windows XP. (A nice waste of money on Windows 7.) His Windows XP now runs smoothly and is all as it was.

Suddenly today, after my brother connected to my Windows 7 homegroup (or workgroup rather) through his Windows XP machine, my computer got the EXACT same problem as he had ages ago! I have been browsing Google all day downloading s**t, changing things in my computer, trying EVERY possible fix that people have suggested and that sound legit. Nothing works!

So now all of a sudden, my computer is sluggish, games are jumpy and jittery, video rendering times are slooooooow.

Here is a picture of my resource monitor:
You can see the physical memory usage being at 45%. I've ordered the memory usage of each service in highest to lowest.
I just CANT see where the problem is!

Answer:Windows 7 random CPU usage and high physical memory usage!!!

I can tell you what is probably causing your problems. AVG.
When you are looking at memory, do not sort by Working set, sort by Hard faults.
Hard faults is what causes things to slow down. Plus you have plenty of memory not to worry about usage.

Greetings,
 
I formatted my computer, and after installing windows 7 again, my physical memory in task manager is very high, and cpu keeps jumping up and down.
 
I looked at the processes tab, but noticed absolutely nothing taking abnormal memory (private working set.) Then moved on to performance tab> resource monitor, and found svchost (I think it was netsvcs in parenthesis,) hogging all the memory. After ending the process, I still have had high memory usage, and surprisingly, do not see a process anywhere in task manager with high numbers next to it, so I have no idea what's happening.
 
I have noticed that my windows 7 folder keeps increasing in size, currently about 26 gigs, and a helper told me that it's normal because the updates in windows 7 have a different compression method than windows 8 and after, however when I had previously installed windows 7, fully updated... my folder size was normal, so I assume it can be done?
 
I originally posted in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs section, however I did not find malware on my computer, so unless it's very new malware, I am certain windows 7 is causing this problem.
 
For antivirus, I am currently using a free trial of Norton.
 
Advice?
 
P.S. This is probably better for the hardware section, but can constant high physical memory, and cpu usage ruin my hardware? I am avoiding using things that take up high cpu and memory right now, and it's currently about 1.2 g... Read more

Hi all, hope you can help.

Every so often, when listening to online radio streams/playing games etc my computer just goes crazy. I get a lot of hard drive 'chatter' and lots of fan noise and everything slows to a crawl. My music will start jumping and skipping and there is a long delay between me clicking the mouse and the action happening. It happens when no other programs (for example, my AV/AS) are due to scan. When I look at my Task Manager the two biggest eaters of memory usage are fm.exe (game, it normally eats a load but makes no substantial difference to the comp speed) and ekrn.exe (something to do with my AV, not quite sure what it actually does though)

I am running Windows MCE SP3 and am using NOD32 anti-virus and Sunbelt CounterSpy anti-spyware. The definitions on both are updated daily and both scan daily. I have also defragged the comp and do so weekly. The other programs I use are CCleaner and Glary Utilities, both fairly regularly to clean up my comp when I was working as an internet researcher, but less often now.

I do not get any error messages/BSOD's or actual freezes. Everything just slows right down. Could I have picked up a form of malware/virus that my AV/AS isn't picking up? Could one of my previous spring cleans have been too aggressive? Or is it simply too much load for my comp (2 year old Dell)? It is 3MHz, 1G RAM, kinda your bog standard media comp from 2007.

Your thoughts and advice are greatly appreciated as it's starting ... Read more

Answer:Computer is apparently being scanned - high CPU usage/memory usage

When you experience or encounter strange behavior, always check for new, unknown or suspicious processes in Task Manager.Most of the processes in Task Manager will be legitimate as shown in these links.List of common system processes found in XP's Task ManagerCommon system processes found in XP's Task ManagerTop System ProcessesAnytime you come across a suspicious file or one that you do not recognize, search the name using Google or the following databases:BC's Startup Programs DatabaseSystemLookup StartupList IndexFile Research CenterProcessLibrary.comDetermining whether a file is malware or a legitimate process sometimes depends on the location (path) it is running from. One of the ways that malware tries to hide is to give itself the same name as a critical system file. However, it then places itself in a different location on your computer. Another techinique is for the process to alter the registry and add itself as a Startup program so that it can run automatically each time the computer is booted.

Recently my computer has been plagued by High CPU and general malware. I believe i've removed most of the malware. But I can't seem to fix the issue with the dllhost.exe and multiple explorer.exe running.

First i ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, then I ran Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit. Found lots of issues. all resolved. Ran them recently again and no malware was found. Still have the explorer.exe issue though.

Then I used combofix, but it changed nothing.

In the meanwhile i've just been ending the explorer.exe processes that take high CPU. This allows me to temporarily use my computer before they start popping up again.
 

Answer:dllhost.exe, multiple explorer.exe's, high CPU usage, and memory usage

Hi,
 
Just yesterday I realized that my computer was acting super slowly and I even received a blue screen of death out of nowhere. Upon checking my processes list,I found many suspicious processes that continued to multiply when I tried to end them. These included: PresentationHost.exe, msdtc.exe, dllhost.exe, prevhost.exe, cmd.exe, msiexec.exe, conhost.exe, and even a notepad.exe that seems to be invisible. A malware is most likely behind this, and is causing my computer to perform very slowly and be almost unusable, I have managed to run FRST, but Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is not even opening for me. In addition, this multiplying issue seems to only occur when I am connected to the internet. I would highly appreciate some help!

   Maybe someone can direct me regarding what I might be able to do with regards to my having a sluggish browser (FF). Please don't say try Chrome because FF is indeed still better (Faster & much more customizable) !! That said...I seem to have  a problem with FF constantly getting "hung up" not responding) particularly after the memory usage from the browser rises above 600,000 k.I ALWAYS have anywhere between 50 to 125 tabs "loaded" but,not necessarily "loaded". Bookmarking all these tabs pretty much kind of sucks (Although,I do it).Hell..I don't even use the browsers actually bookmarking ....
 
   .I have actually made two different folders on the book mark bar....one entitled  A-M and the other entitled N-Z !Not really thrilled with this either,though.I guess at this point I'm just kind of wondering  why someone hasn't maybe come up with an extension that maybe tells you when you reach a certain point of cpu usage within your browser so that you can at least then shut down & reload the browser.Or,maybe there's an even better solution ?????

Whaaat!!  225 tabs??   Methinks therein lies your problem.  Maybe you are expecting too much from an extension too.  It's not the job of an extension to monitor system resources.

Hello and To BC!

Look under the process tab in the task manager and find out what process is using the most resources. Does this same situation happen when google chrome is closed?

So, it's exactly as the title says,
I downgraded back down to windows 8 after feeling some sluggishness with my windows 10 OS.
It started off fine, but once I started downloading and installing necessary windows update files, I noticed once again the sluggishness I felt before, except this time my System Disk which is also my SSD drive, was being used up to 100% while my CPU was completely fine

Can someone please help me out in this scenario.

I'm running Win XP, and I was downloading some software over the last few days for popup blockers, and I downloaded Yahoo Blocker, Google Blocker, and then ran AdAware 6 [which I've since removed to get Ad Aware SE].

Anyway, I'm having very high CPU usage, and High Memory Usage in the Windows Task Manager. I keep closing dostask.exe because it keeps using nearly 90-100% of the CPU, and it keeps maxing out my memory which is 1/2 Gig.

When I start the machine, the system runs fine, but then it begins to climb. I close it, and it climbs again, and then repeat.

I also did a search for dostask.exe and found this file: DOSTASK.EXE-25D34F68.pf located in the F:\Windows\Prefetch folder. Any help is appreciated.

Important Note: F:\ is my main drive.

Can anyone tell me what I should do?
 

Answer:High CPU Usage & High Memory Usage From dostask.exe

You need to find out what is starting that dostask.exe and either remove it (if it's not something you use) or change the settings (if it's something you use). Read the stickied thread for more info.

So I've been dealing with high CPU usage and physical memory usage for a while now and was wondering if anyone could help. I've been looking at windows task manager and I think I've found the culprit. I rebooted my computer just to make sure and I believe its one of the 12 svchost.exe processes running on my computer. When the computer rebooted it was fine but then after some minutes that process shot up to as much as 1,000,000k in physical memory usage right now its around 705,148k. I assume that there is my problem but I am not exactly sure so I was wondering if anyone here could help me out. Thanks.

Hi.
I was using my laptop a few days ago. I left to go out and came back about an hour later. I notice my CPU usage was running @ 100% & the memory @ 80%.My laptop just stopped. I went into safe mode and that is where I am currently . I have deleted almost everything I don't use(didn't mind).I've even gone to msconfig to check off things i don't use.The initial response was good.CPU usage dropped, but as soon as I used the internet,rebooted or used an Icon everything that I discontinued in msconfig would be checked again.I did this several times.
I ran Iobit Advance system care w/ everything that it possess & ran Spyhunter all in safe mode.It did'nt come up with much.I am currently Googling for anything that match my criteria.There are a few but no good remedies. I don't have a backup disk to use to restore or else I would have tried.I am looking for any good advice. I hope that i dont have to replace the processor or the memory. I mostly use this laptop for games,emails,social media,and searches. Please help.Thanks

There is a serious issue with svchost.exe on my windows 7 computer. My HP Touchsmart 300-1025 has windows 7 64bit installed and svchost is slowing down the computer and using very high cpu and memory usage. It is not a virus or malware. I know the computer is not infected because one the computer has webroot and two if it was a virus or malware I would not be able to use the computer at all. So it has to be an issue with windows 7 64bit itself. Here is a screenshot of what I'm talking about and proof.

Answer:High Memory Usage, & High CPU usage

The thing to do is use Task Manager ( right click on task bar at bottom of the screen, and choose Task Manager ). Then click on the Processes tab, click on the CPU column header so it sorts the rows by cpu usage. So now you will see the processes that use a lot of cpu.

If you are using Vista, or Windows 7; pull down the View menu, choose 'select columns' and then checkmark 'command line'. Then each row will give the location of the program on the hard drive.

Hello there!

First of all, thanks ahead for time spent helping me with my problem, it is truly appreciated!

So, onto my problem..

Since a short period of barely 2 weeks my RAM usage has been sky-high. I have a total of 16GB memory, which has never let me down in the over 3 years that I've used it. During usage of my computer, my memory has normally (in idle situations) never really exceeded 20%, except recently it idles between 40-70%. Sometimes it even spikes up to 80-90% and occasionally it sits at 98-100%; which basically makes my computer un-usable (as you can see on this image; nothing using much memory, yet sitting at 98%). Whenever I reboot my computer, the problem 'resets' itself and after boot it sits on 40-70% again (rarely it sits on 98-100% again after rebooting!).

To add to this; I've also had a few blue screen crashes (which I normally never get). I have pictures of my phone of the stop codes and 'what failed' (I can supply the information if needed). The last time it crashed (over 2 weeks ago), it could not boot and wanted to do an automatic repair, after which booting succeeded. After this I used the program "WhoCrashed" to find out what the problem was, I have the logs from that saved on my desktop and can attach them if needed.

At first I thought it was a memory leak caused by a driver, but after reviewing/updating my drivers, the problem didn't go away and it didn't make sense (to me) that the problem re-occured after a reboot. ... Read more

Thanks!

Answer:Memory Usage High but I'm Not Sure Why.

Not exactly sure how to answer this.

Your memory is being used by "things" either you start, or are started for you when your system starts or they are Windows processes. Exactly what your vendor loaded and what you've loaded into your machine people on the forum wouldn't know.

In your screen shots, right beside your user picture/icon is a little arrow head. If you click on it will show you what makes up the 2.3GB.

For the 3 GB click on Processes. If you want more columns of info, right click in the column headings. You will get a drop down and you can add a column for type, process name and command line. If you left click in the column headings it should sort the column allowing you to see heavy hitters. If it sorts column ascending and you want descending click again.

Hopefully this will give you insight into where the big chunks are going. Check your startup tab in the task manager to see what is being started. Some can be disabled with no real impact, some will have an immediate impact.

Hello,
since quite a long time pasted after installing Win 7, many programs were installed and removed. For the past few weeks I noticed huge computer processing slow down. Turned off almost all startup programs, used TuneUp and CCleaner, defragmentation, but nothing helped. Just a little. Now on idle my pc uses 600-800 out off 1000 MB Ram. Even after closing most unneeded processes. CPU usage on idle is very low, while working, not very high. But lack of available Ram slows the pc very much. Btw, both C and D volumes are half empty. Also I use external HDD, but that shouldn't affect anything. Any ideas?

Hello I seen to have an issue with the "physical cache" in my lap top.It's using over 1200Mb at idle.that doesn't leave enought to handle demanding programs .ie Google Earth.
can you help me with this.
Thanks,Charlie
 

Answer:High Memory Usage

It's using over 1200Mb at idleClick to expand...

That's in the expected range for Vista. Not much you can do except add memory (if you can). Remember that with a 32-bit system the max memory used will be around 3.0 or 3.5 GB.

Question: High Memory Usage

Howdy. I'm running Win 7 & every time I open Int. Ex. (even when absolutely nothing else is running) I get a flag from Norton saying "High Mem Usage by Int Ex". I was thinking of getting another mem stick but someone suggested I could divert more of the mem resources to Int Ex. They didn't know how, though
Appreciate the help

Hi guys,

I have been having issues with my computer the past few weeks. The disk usage has been jumping up to 100% frequently, and the memory usage is up in the 80's. CPU usage is on the high side too. I don't have much running, the biggest drain seems to be firefox. I wonder if there is something running in the background that could be the cause?

Also, maybe a windows 10 issue, but when i try to shut down about 50% of the time it just starts up again?

I should maybe also mention that i use a dual-monitor set-up.

I have uninstalled any unnecessary programs, i have run AVG free, CCleaner and Spybot, all seem clean.

My PC specs are (Speccy):

Question: High memory usage

hello all, I found my PC really slow after a while of use, checking Task Manager found that my total percent of memory was at 99% while playing BF3, funny thing today also 2 friends had exactly the same problem, friend's PC system X79 SSD RAID nvidia 670 32gb, my other friend's PC intel 1356 HHD ati 6870 6gb trichannel and my system AMD 790fxt SSD ati 7970 16gb we all are running Windows 8 PRO 64bits fresh install.

Lately my tower has been making those humming noises, I figure it's from the CPU Processor Fan since it happens while playing online games that are downloaded, YouTube videos etc...

While playing both of those my CPU usage skyrockets to 70+, memory also gets higher to around 300,000 K+. Without being on those it's around 02-11 CPU with about 80,000 K, thus causing lag and slowing down other programs.

Another problem that I don't know if it's associated with the current one, is that my Free Physical Memory (MB) is always in the 10s lately. Normally it's in the 50s...

It happens with EVERY browser (Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome, Safari), so I know it's not just FireFox.

I've tried removing programs I don't use anymore and ones that take up a lot of memory, uninstalling and reinstalling all flash, java, shockwave programs, updating my computer, checking for virus' and trojans with free software only and I'm completely out of ideas.

I ran a HTJ and here is my log, if anyone could help,at all, it'd be greatly appreciated. Even if it's just another idea, I'd be glad to try it out.

Answer:High memory usage

You appear to have a Dell laptop.
What model name and model number is it?
What's the 7-character "service tag" number on the sticker?

It appears to be running Windows 7(64-bit) with only 2 GB(2048 MB) of RAM.
It it supports more RAM than that, you need to add more.

It may have too many programs auto-starting and running in the background.

It may be infested with malware, spyware, etc..

It may be running too hot.

The list of issues can go on.

Question: HIGH memory usage!

My computer has been acting VERY strange. I reformatted 2 days ago and put in a fresh installation of Windows XP Home LEGIT and updated all the drivers. Since the time I installed windows until now it has been slow as a mule and freezes for 10 seconds at a time, randomly. Even when it's just sitting there. First thought was spyware or virus, but I ran scans with all the good anti-everything and came up with nothing. I've rebooted multiple times. Take a look at this screen I took, explorer.exe has been rising rapidly in mem usage and i dont understand. it does it just sitting there with no programs open. It's been up to 1,000,000 K+ of VM if it sits there long enough.  It can't be a virus because it happend as soon as i installed windows and wasnt connected to internet at the time. I really would NOT like to reinstall again unless it is my last option. My computer used to be fast as lightening before reformat, so idk, drivers are updated and everything, sigh

Question: high memory usage

Hi ive been noticing my memory usage has been idling pretty high and I cant tell if its normal or not. Im not home right now so I cant provide specifics but I have 4gb of memory and and im usually idling at around 35-45% usage. I have windows 7 and disabled a ton of non-essential services and am down to 33 (includes all users).

I noticed svchost is taking up 170mb and on my brothers computer, only 50mb. Idk if thats suspicious or not but my svchost has only 5 services and his about 8-10 (I disabled a lot). So im confused as to why mine takes up so much more memory.

Also the main thing is I added up the usage from all the processes displaying from all users and its only 450-500mb, yet im idling at 40% usage which is 1.6gb. Is this normal for the task manager to not add up to the total usage?

Hello,
Looking at the task manager I see that about 50 % of RAM memory is used and about 20 % of cpu.
The computer does nothing. Not a sigle app opened. Only the background tasks. I disabled almost anything from start-up. I even closed some services.

This I believe happened after installing a trial of Adobe Dreamweaver. Could it be the problem or is it a coincidence. It may conflict with other application?

Any help/suggestion would be very much appreciated.

Answer:high memory usage

Welcome to Seven Forums tsoaf. Those numbers don't seem bad, it's just all relative to how much memory you have. See my numbers, but I have twice as much memory.



I have 63 processes running. I think 2 gig memory is the minimum these days, but as long as you aren't running out of memory when you are doing tasks, you are ok. memory is there to be used, and based on the comparison, I don't think your usage is high, but more that you could use another 2 gigs

A Guy

Edit:

Hmmm, just looked at your pic again, and it seems to say you have 4gig, but only 2 are available? If you fill in your system specs, we can dig deeper. Let us know how much memory is installed, it may be that only half is being used?

This is a feature of your anti virus programme which keeps a record of average usage and then warns the user if this increases.
This can happen because you have a lot of tabs open at the same time.
It can also be because you have a lot of add-ons. It maybe because you have downloaded large images. When you get this message try closing down any browsers - this should help.
It is not necessarily anything to worry about - just your anti virus doing it's job. It is normal for some programmes, particularly browsers, to occasionally require more system resources.
Only if a programme continually continues to demand a very high percentage of system resources over a prolonged period of time should you be worried.

Question: Memory Usage High

Hi. IDK what's going on with my system. I have an HP Win7 64-Bit. AMD Six-Core 3.3Ghz & 10Gb Ram. My windows experience rating is only 5.0 in Computer properties, lol. I know, One would think it would be higher. Well, I haven't formatted in about almost two years. I know one should try to do that at least once a year, so you always have a clean system. But it really gets tiring formating, and re-installing everything back.
I usually run CCleaner and stuff to make sure it runs free of clutter and other stuff that might just decrease its speed. I run Ableton Live sometimes to mess around with music production, and It's lagging and so annoying now.
About a month ago, I noticed that while my CPU remains at a normal 2-10% (Depending what's open), my memory has been drastically high.
Like from 40%-80%.
I closed dropbox, it's probably something that's starting. I have that free Startup CPL program and this is what I have starting up on boot up;

KeyScrambler
SDTray
ZALFree Antilogger
ZoneAlarm
Peerblock
Sidebar
Onedrive
Spotify Web Helper
Hydra Vision Desktop Manager

Thanks in advance.

Question: High Memory Usage

Hello, I have a question.

The system process (ntoskrnl.exe) using excessive amount of RAM. So, how do I fix that?

Thanks

Answer:High Memory Usage

If you are still having a problem you might try ESET online scanner. I solved high memory usage by finding a virus that no other scanner found.

Hi, im new here.i found the thread about the high memory usage. but the last post is 400++days ago. and i cant find answer for my problem. so i decide to post a new 1.

Firefox showing high memory usage. Is it normal? because, it never happened before untill i have the blue screen problem. i forgot to take the screen shot. when i open other program, aLogin.exe (online game from IGG), the memory rise up till 100k and sometime reach 200k too. it also never happened before.before this, i can open up to 9 windows of aLogin without any problems and the memory usage is around 20k to 35k only. can someone help me out with this problem?

Answer:Memory Usage Too High

Firefox usage is a bit high but not unreasonable. aLogin also a tic high.

I have seen firefox use upward of 450 Mb. It depends on how many addons and tabs open.

Hi, I have a Lenovo U410 Touch laptop. My problem is that the memory usage seems extremely high and it seems to be causing problems when I tab between programmes. I have 4GB of memory and even now with nothing other than Firefox and Task Manager actively open memory usage is 69% (2.7GB).

Question: High memory usage?

Is 1.36 GB memory used abnormally high for 7? i was scouting through what little system information i could find (never had vista, kinda lost on some things) and i saw that my video card is sharing some system memory. then on the performance tab of the task manager i only see 3038 MB of RAM total, but i've got 4 GB installed.

My system isn't running slow or anything like that i just thought it odd that the memory usage was hovering at a near constant 46% used. The amount that my video card says is shared is like 1263 MB, is that counted towards the total used memory (cached included)? or is that 1263 MB sitting in the page file for later use?

I've got a FX-60, 4 GB of RAM, and a 500 MB 7900 GTX OC, does my video card really need to have another 1.2 GB shared from system memory?

Answer:High memory usage?

It's pretty normal I suppose. The reason it's only accessing 3.3 gb of memory and not the full 4 is normal for a 32 bit OS. If you had 64 bit it would be like mine shown here.

Hello, I'm running a 64 bit Windows 10 laptop. On idle, the System process is showing a high memory usage of more than 150 MB, usually more than 200 MB. Using poolmon the pooltag SpDN showed up with a memory leak. It leads to the Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver, iaStorV.sys. How should I go about fixing the problem?

Answer:High memory usage / Memory leak caused by Intel driver

Hi,

Since this is a Intel driver I doubt the WDK can fix it.
You may try to see if there's a more current version of Intel's RST available for download and see if that fixes the leakage issue.

Cheers,

Hey All, I'm not the best with Computer Hardware I guess you could say, however I've been noticing that my H30 is using a lot of RAM even if my computer is just running Chrome, Steam and at times TeamSpeak. Right now, I'm running those programs and Skype. Task Manager says that my Memory usage is at 61%, here is a screenshot of the Memory Tab in Task Manager. http://i.imgur.com/Phj2cnH.png As I say, I'm not the best with Computer hardware and all but, should the Memory Usage really be that high, just running such a small amount of programs, it increases a lot higher when I start playing games such as Red Orchastra 2 and Grand Theft Auto V. Does anyone have any information regarding this, or suggestions. Thanks,Ben

Answer:H30 - High Memory Usage High Constantly

Hey there. That is completely normal, the Windows OS does take up some memory. However, if you feel that the computer is slow or is laggy, you can upgrade your RAM. They are typically easy to upgrade and not too expensive.

Hi,
 
I am helping my parents troubleshoot their computers.  My feeling is that they are both infected with the same virus/trojan but I can find it or figure out what is going on.  
 
The each have identical laptops and both are experience identical problems.  Both are running Avast! and both systems are not turning up any discovered viruses or trojans during scans.  I am on the verge of completely refronting both of their laptops and am really hoping I can avoid having to do that.  I suspected that maybe they were both infected with "poweliks" but the below FRST shows (at least I think so) that neither are infected with that trojan.  I am now thinking its a memory leak on some recent driver/app update - but either trojan or memory leak, I am not finding it.
 
Symptoms:
After a clean reboot, within 24 to 48 hours both systems begin to get very sluggish, both audio and video starts to skip and lag, both mice bounce around like crazy when trying to move the pointer.  After about 72 hours the laptops simply freeze to the point that they have to pull the batteries to get them to shut off.  
 
I had my Dad run FRST on his computer, below are the results:

Hi,
I have a i7 3770k at 3.9 ghz, so stock with turbo boost.
I tried oc'ing to 4.5 ghz, didnt fix the problem.
Basically, in some games i get high cpu usage and at the same time low gpu usage.
My system is i7 3770k, gtx1070, 16 gb ddr3 ram, corsair hx850i psu.
In witcher 3 novigrad, which is cpu heavy, i sometimes get gpu usage at like 70% which causes stutter, at the same time cpu usage is around 85%.
When i leave town i get 95-99% gpu usage again and my cpu usage drops.
Dying light same, if cpu usage is high my gpu usage drops.
Battlefield 1 is normally fine in 95-99% gpu usage, except st quentin, but others reported this too.
What can this be? My cpu shouldnt be bottlenecking. Like i said i trid overclocking, didn't help.
nvcp is set to prefer maximum performance and i'm playing at 1440p 144hz.

Hi,

I just bought my brand new laptop and have loaded Vista Ultimate 32bit onto it for about 5 days. I noticed something unusual about Vista's CPU usage while idle in the task manager as well as the Resource monitor.

I have attached two pictures to show my problem. Notice that my CPU usage is always at about 40-60% on both of my cores. However, the average CPU usage per process shows that it should actually occupy about 15% to at most 20% (by adding up all the highest average CPU for processes in the first picture). The second picture I attached shows the current CPU usage sorted by max usage, and again it does not add up to 41%!

Although at 40-60% usage, I do not notice any major performance impacts, as both cores are not loaded to the max. However, I do notice Vista chewing up more battery than needed when I have my laptop running off batteries. Because the max frequency for the processor would always need to be raised to around 60% even when idle (instead of say... 10-20%).

I have searched online for various problems relating to high CPU usage, and most of the responses are about tracing down which process is the culprit. Well, this is where I'm stumped because it all does not add up! According to the process view, everything is normal but my system resources are still get constantly chewed up by something invisible it seems.

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated at this point!
 

Answer:Vista Ultimate 32: high CPU usage does not correspond with process usage

Posting two more image to show this problem from the task manager...

Notice that the system idle process is 84, and yet CPU usage is 42? I always thought that:
CPU usage + idle process = 100?

Perhaps things are done differently with dual core processors? This is my first dual core so I'm not sure. The second image shows how both my cores are being used roughly equally, at around 50%.

It seems that I've been getting low memory issues ever since upgrading to Win10, but I'm not 100% certain if thats the issue. I thought about uprading to 16gb ram, but I'd like to know if theres some other fix for this. I can't multitask as I used to be able to.

Answer:High Memory Usage/ Low Memory Popup on Win10 8gb Laptop

Hello svader55 Welcome to the Ten Forums!

On the first impression I would have to suspect the problem is with the upgrade itself where you might end needing to see a Clean Install of 10. First however you can try a few things out to see if this is only a minor glitch. On an older 7 model by HP the upgrade seen last summer was a disaster waiting to happen which I had enticipated and saw an immediate clean install to follow! Of after going from the 32bit 7 Home Premium to 10 Home x86 I subsequently changed that with a second fresh install the 64bit Windows.

The initial tool would be the System File Checker you would run from the Command prompt(admin) option when right clicking on the Start button. You simply scroll down to that option to see the new window open up. At the dos like prompt you then simply type in "sfc /scannow" and press enter to get the tool underway.

The tool will then scan all the important system files and if finding one or more corrupt or missing will often be able to replace them but not all unfortunately from cab files tucked away on the local drive. With previous versions the rec for having the Windows dvd in the driver was made in case the SFC had to extract something from the Windows media there if the problem was more involved. This is why the suggestion for the possible need to see a fresh clean install of 10 is being made here.

My NT server (4.0 w/sp6a and latest security updates and hotfixes) shows high memory usage for:

cisvc.exe AND
cidaemon.exe

as well as for my InnoculateIT anti-virus.

I have 6 other servers (NT as well) which do not have this high memory issue. Each server has basically the same software and hardware and are approximately the same age.

I went to the microsoft support site and the only error/fix I found regarding this related to W2K server.

The server is a file server for high school students and needs to be available and accessible on a daily basis. I am honestly not even sure what cisvc and cidaemon do for me. I tried to end the process via the taskmanager and it wouldn't allow me to do so (I am the network administrator).

If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it.

Thank you.

AMRS
 

Answer:NT 4.0 Server High Memory Usage

That is the indexing service on the system. You will need to stop the service and/or disable it. This is more than likely what is causing the problem with Innoculate as Microsoft recommends to turn off Anti-Virus software when running the Indexing Service.

I recently bough a Lenovo Yoga 700 and I think it's a great laptop. The only issue I'm having is that the task manager constantly shows a very high ram usage, with more than 50% of ram in use at all times even when no program is running. Looking at the processes running in the background, they definitely don't add up to anywhere close to 4GB. Is anyone else having this issue? I upgraded the intel HD 520 drivers to the latest version (15.40.12.4326) bypassing the Lenovo drivers which are still stuck to the older .4279 version. Could this be the cause?
