    Desktop Window Manager high memory usage

    dwm.exe randomly uses ALOT of memory on my HTPC. I have 8gb ram and after a scheduled nightly restart dwm will use 80% of that memory until I restart again, then the computer runs fine.

    I have tried fixes/solutions to other similar posts with dwm issues to no avail.

    Any new suggestions to try?

    Cheers

    System and compressed memory high disk usage during file copy

    Thank you Amarjeet_Paul.

    I spent many more hours than I had hoped this past week reading and trying others' suggestions from this community on how to reduce high RAM usage due to ntoskrnl.exe. The "System and compressed memory" process remained the top consumer of RAM, using 500-900MB,
    among all other processes running. I deemed it to be the likely culprit in making my computer use frustratingly sluggish. After completing your
    third step, steps 1. & 2. provided no improvement in my case, the "System and compressed memory" process RAM usage has plummeted from the top of the Task Manager Process list to the bottom, running at a remarkable 0.1MB! That's a whole lot less than
    1% of the targeted process' gluttony. You're hired! Ps. I'll be keeping an eye on the process' use as I get back to normal operations, and be back if it floats to high in the list. Or if the registry fix you suggested has compromised use in any way. Please
    explain in simple terms what the insertion of your registry modification is doing.

    Thanks again.
