    Windows Explorer Memory Leak


    I have multiple PC's and the leak seems to be only one AMD chipset with CPU / GPU combo PC's. I have tried updating windows to the latest. I have tried updating AMD drivers to the latest. I have going onto windows performance mode under advanced settings.I can not pinpoint the leak to a specific driver or handle within Explorer. I do note that Explorer does seem to have a handle leak. I have removed any 3rd party handles inclusive of EDGE PDF preview dll. There seems to be a commit charge constantly and Explorer will eventually reach over 1GB in working memory. I am wondering if anyone can

    :)

    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.
