    Service Host memory leak?


    Hi,
    I'm new to win 10 and it is a grand adventure I have to say.
    Today I figured why my computer has been shutting down/lagging.

    The processes under Service Host (all of them) consume ungodly amount of ram, and they increase usage over time. The PC can idle and this will still happen to the point of running out of memory and eventually shutting down.

    Any remedy for this?

  2. Service Host Using LOTS of Memory. Services: WMI and IP Helper

    Just an update...

    I managed to solve my issue by disabling the service "Ip Helper" which belongs to service host and restarting the computer.

    The leak stopped and I haven't found any more problems since then.

    However, this isn't the right fix. The right thing to do was to know why the two services inside service host(IP Helper and WMI) are conflicting with each other causing a leak.

    Maybe your leak isn't coming from the same services as mine so I suggest stopping each one individually until you find the ones that are causing the leak.

    Once you've done that try keeping them disabled and restart your computer.

    I managed to keep IP Helper disabled without causing any malfunctions to my system.

    Good luck.

    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.

    Service Host memory leak?

    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.
