    Registry (ntoskrnl.exe) sometimes consuming 40+MB RAM after Win Update [​IMG]

    Ok so I noticed some strange behaviour sometimes on Windows Start up. In the Task Manager there is a file name called Registry. This normally sits at 1-2MB RAM.

    But I have noticed occasions when this would jump to as high as 40MB RAM! And after a few seconds it will drop back down to 1-2MB RAM and then it jumped back up to 6MB RAM.

    I right clicked on it and clicked to Open File Location and noticed ‎Created: 25 ‎May ‎2019, ‏‎04:25:41 Modified: ‎25 ‎May ‎2019, ‏‎04:25:42 Accessed: 04:25:42.

    Ok so I have noticed a bunch of Windows updates that were installed on the 25th of May. These were Microsoft Office 2010 updates along with the latest KB4497934 1809 update. This coincides with this Registry (ntoskrnl.exe) modification and this strange behaviour with RAM jumping high.

    I just want to know if this behaviour is normal? There is nothing else that I have installed on the 25th of May. I only installed Office 2010 a day before that.

    :)

    Notepad consuming cpu 40%


    I'd agree the most likely cause is malware. E.g.
    cpu 100% because of notepad.exe? - TechSpot Forums
    - just for information.

    You need to use appropriate tools to clean your system.

    This is what you should see if it is really Windows Notepad:

    You can compare the file and process sizes and other information with that shown on your system.

  4. Registry (ntoskrnl.exe) sometimes consuming 40+MB RAM after Win Update

    System consumes 1440mb ram

    I have 4 GB ram and have upgraded to Windows 10 on 30th july . From 3 days my PC always says Low on memory and then automatically closes some programs. I opened task manager and saw that 'system' was using 1446 mb RAM everytime.

    I am unable to use programs that use ram over 400mb such as netbeans and chrome. Whenever I open them , windows automatically closes them. How to solve this problem?

    EDIT: I have checked This Question and tried answers there. By going into services.msc (via Win+R) and disabling Superfetch completely Does not solve my problem. Also, in that question, System was consuming just 400mb and in my case, consumption is over 1400 mb
