    These applications not are compute-intensive, compared to
    CPU speed. "The problem" is the memory leak of DWM.

    As soon as I could observe a high memory consumption by DWM, I started windows performance tool kit and run the diagnose. Then I switch to the game and
    continued playing for a few seconds
    until stop the diagnosis.

  3. Desktop Window Manager Memory Leak

    I am having this exact same issue, DWM leaking memory over time until the system is a slug. I hadn't really noticed it until the security update rolled out but it appears to have been an issue for awhile. I do run alot of games in borderless windowed mode,
    I will try running in fullscreen and see if that prevents the leak. This issue is super annoying though would appreciate a fix. <3

    Which is the largest ETL file size you can handle? You need some
    different configuration in ETL archive, or current settings is OK to that analysis?

    If 60 seconds is not enough, I will have to run the diagnosis for longer time. I can not predict when and the exact
    circumstances in which the DWM displays strange behavior. All I know
    is that DWM increases your memory consumption over time while playing
    games.
