  1. I can't solve my memory leak problem no matter what I do, please help me :(


    I have 4 GBs of RAM. I know its low but it was working just fine a week ago. I've tried manually ending tasks from the task manager, I've tried uninstalling unnecessary apps, I've tried increasing the virtual memory, I've tried changing regedit values, I've tried changing the performance settings, I've updated the drivers... It just doesn't fix. What should I do?

    Possible Memory Leaks in Windows 10

    A memory leak occurs when an application closes and fails to release all its RAM back to the operating system.

    The first step in dealing with a memory leak is to determine which application is leaking memory.

    The next step is to contact that application's technical support with complete details of the memory leak, since the developers will want to fix the problem ASAP.

    Memory leak issue

    The term "memory leak" means that an application fails to return all its RAM to the operating system when it exits. The leftover RAM is unusable to the operating system.

    Step one is to identify the application that is leaking memory. Step two is to contact the application's developers and provide as much detailed data on the memory leak as you can. For example: which processes are still in RAM after the application exits
    and how much RAM they occupy. Application developers never want their applications to leak memory and they will be grateful for the details you provide, particularly if they can replicate the leak on their own computers.

    Windows Memory Leak

    'Memory leak' refers to a process that continues to use memory even after the process has ended.

    Since leaking memory is a coding problem (and a serious one at that) the only way to solve it is to bring it to the software developer's attention.

    In the illustration accompanying your question, which process(es) is/are leaking memory?
