  1. Desktop Window Manager uses 3go out of 7 of my RAM - What is happening ?


    Hi,

    Since a few month, Desktop Window Manager uses a huge part of my RAM more than 2go, can go up to 3go. That's not acceptable. It can completely freeze my PC for hours yes, for hours. I have to force stop it nearly every day.

    My Windows 10 Pro is up to date, all my drivers are up to date, and I already run a system image check DISM. Changed nothing.

    What can I do to search what is happening ? What should I do ? How can I learn more ?

    Thanks in advance for any answer. Any help is welcome


    EDIT :


    After searching a bit more, I found this :

    and this :https://www.intel.com/content/www/u...hics-for-8th-generation-intel-processors.html


    And I am using an Intel HD Graphics 630 ! I'm not 100% sure but that really looks like the issue I'm having

    Desktop using 23,9/24GB of RAM

    So recently I installed an additional 16GB of RAM in my pc and everything was runnning fine. I upgraded to Windows 10 and installed all the programs I use etc.
    Now my pc was always using around 30% of the ram, however it soon became 60% and now it is using 99% from startup.

    Here are some steps I already performed with the results from those steps:

    • I ran a virus scan, with nothing showing up
    • I checked my startup programs, nothing wrong with it in my eyes
    • I ran sfc /scannow which showed up with nothing aswell
    • I ran Kasperky AntiRootKit, nothing showed up
    • I ran Malwarebytes which showed up clean
    • I ran SuperAntiSpyware professional, nothing showed up(except some cookies which are deleted now
    • I ran WPR -cancel in CMD, No trace profiles running


    The programs that start when my PC boots are:

    I hope anyone of you can help me find a solution to this. I know windows10 leverages memory better than windows 7, but it shouldnt be 100% use even when idle.

    Here is a screenshot of my resource monitor:

    • Press Ctrl + Alt + Del
    • Open Task manager.
    • Click on Detail Tab.
