    High RAM usage on Shell Infrastructure Host ShellHost.exe


    Hey everyone,So I did a clean install of Windows 11 winver below and ShellHost.exe has been utilizing 600MB of RAM constantly.I've explored several help threads regarding the Shell Infrastructure Host's high CPU usage but haven't found solutions for its elevated RAM usage. I have tried various fixes like resetting the Photos app and running sfc and DISM commands among other solutions I've come across for the high CPU usage, but the issue persists.Does anyone know why this is happening and if there's a solution? This has never happened before I clean-installed this same Windows 11 version.

    :)

    Shell Infrastructure Host High CPU Usage

    Hello all,

    Currently running into some issues with Shell Infrastructure Host sitting at 50% cpu usage. I have uninstalled the photos app and run maintenance tasks. Have also tried scanning for corrupt system files. Due to the usage of the pc, I will be unable to restart it for some time.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    -Ethan
