    Windows 10 Pro upgrade plus Hyper-V turned on equals high memory usage


    I upgraded Windows 10 Home to Pro a few days ago. Then I turned on Hyper-V.

    Now my memory is being used at 85-95% without any dips. In Task Mgr I see a bunch of processes are loaded into memory with small individual footprints, but the overall is obviously unacceptable. (See image attachment.) MalwareBytes Premium is installed - it's not new but it is sitting there near the top of the memory-using processes so could be a factor(?)

    My question is: Is this normal for Pro and Hyper-V (or one of the two), or is some sort of update process occurring that is burning up all my RAM? It's been going like this for three days now. If the only solution is to buy more RAM then so be it, but I don't want to drop a hundred bucks if I don't have to. (Pro already cost me that much.)

    If you're curious, my goal in upgrading was to be able to have an Android emulator I could develop an app with in Visual Studio.

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

    Can not turn Hyper-v on in Windows 10 pro

    Hello! I wanted to turn Hyper-v on since I upgraded to windows 10 pro. However, whenever I turn it on from control panel and reboot as instructed, Windows give me "we couldn't complete the changes. Undoing changes" message and Hyper-v is not turned on.

    I use Intel core i7-5820k six core, and systeminfo.exe shows that my hardware is compatible. I've made sure Hyper-v is on in BIOS. How can I turn Hyper-v on?

  4. Windows 10 Pro upgrade plus Hyper-V turned on equals high memory usage

    Upgrade to Windows 10 Pro with Hyper V

    Hi

    I am currently running Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit with Hyper V enabled as I need the virtual machine for my work. I would like to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro 64bit and understand that Hyper V comes with 10 Pro which is great, but I am concerned that my current
    settings will be lost duting the upgrade.

    My question is.... can I upgrade without losing any of my existing Hyper V and VM settings?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.
