    Hey guys! I am currently using Windows 10, My memory usage is fluctuating between 85%-95%, and I cannot seem to find out the reason why. I downloaded RamMap to see what my Nonpaged Pool was at, and it is sitting at 4,851,008 K. This is definitely what is causing the issue. I then downloaded Process Explorer to see if I can see what is taking up all of the Nonpaged Pool, and Nothing in there is using anywhere close to as much memory as being described. I could really use some help! Here are some photos for reference.

    Welcome to Ten Forums.

    I count some 50-60 Chrome processes in your screenshots. Just how many tabs do you have open? I can push my memory usage up to 90% by opening some 35 tabs in Firefox....

    ...but that quickly drops to a more normal 66% if I close all bar one of the tabs....

    ....and down to 50% if I close Firefox.
