  1. How to deal with low virtual memory conditions


    I started having problems on my Windows 10 system about 2 weeks ago and find myself rebooting every few days because things are crashing. When I look in the event viewer I see a lot of repeats of warning messages that look like this:


    Windows successfully diagnosed a low virtual memory condition. The following programs consumed the most virtual memory: Unpacker.exe 6288 consumed 2462076928 bytes, coldfusion.exe 5876 consumed 607285248 bytes, and BlueIris.exe 5500 consumed 539377664 bytes.


    In the same area of the event viewer there are a lot of hard errors of services failing.


    I have no idea what unpacker.exe is but I do know about ColdFusion and Blue Iris and they are valid for my system. Is unpacker.exe something that Microsoft runs? I cannot find it on a scans of my C or D drive and when I run Malware Bytes it doesn't bring this up as an issue.


    If unpacker is invalid, how do I get rid of it. If it is valid, why is it using up the virtual storage?

    :)

    Low Virtual Memory

    Sorry. So I was using Premiere Pro, the video was just a screen recording of my desktop. So nothing really heavy. I thought I had all my details of the machine that popped up when i posted. Nonetheless.... it's an i9 7900x processor with a m.2 ssd drive with the os and programs on it. All the creative programs are all set to a 250gb ssd scratch disk. But I did notice that for some reason Premiere was set to scratch to the M.2 for some reason. The video card is a Nvidita GTX 1080 8GB card. The other thing is too I have MSI afterburner running as well. Whether or not that tripped the error I dunno. I'm just going off the error report in event viewer that flagged Low Virtual Memory

    Low Virtual Memory

    So if I'm pushing 64 gb.... what would b the reasoning for my error report with low virtual memory? I tried to look up updating the memory drivers, but that led me down the road of updating the bios
