    WmiPrvSE.exe using high memory when I use Chrome, is this normal? [​IMG]

    I don't know if I am being paranoid or what. But ever since installing Windows 10 I have observed this behaviour. WmiPrvSE.exe is taking in excess of over 20MB RAM in task manager. I am also seeing double of these instances running in task manager.

    May I know whether this is normal? I don't experience this when I try using Microsoft Edge. But on Google Chrome the RAM is going in excess of 20MB.

    I think I noticed this in Home version as well as the Pro version. But in Home I felt that this actually disappeared after some time. But in Pro version this WmiPrvSE.exe does not disappear!

    :)

    controlled file access and wmiprvse

    I am Windows 10 and I have controlled file access activated. I keep getting messages that wmiprvse.exe is being blocked for memory change.

    Does wmiprvse normally change storage or files?

    Should I allow it to do so?

    What is the full , legitimate path to the exe to allow it to update?

    What happens if I continue to block it?

    Thank You,

    Avi Lerner

    System and compressed memory high disk usage during file copy

    Thank you Amarjeet_Paul.

    I spent many more hours than I had hoped this past week reading and trying others' suggestions from this community on how to reduce high RAM usage due to ntoskrnl.exe. The "System and compressed memory" process remained the top consumer of RAM, using 500-900MB,
    among all other processes running. I deemed it to be the likely culprit in making my computer use frustratingly sluggish. After completing your
    third step, steps 1. & 2. provided no improvement in my case, the "System and compressed memory" process RAM usage has plummeted from the top of the Task Manager Process list to the bottom, running at a remarkable 0.1MB! That's a whole lot less than
    1% of the targeted process' gluttony. You're hired! Ps. I'll be keeping an eye on the process' use as I get back to normal operations, and be back if it floats to high in the list. Or if the registry fix you suggested has compromised use in any way. Please
    explain in simple terms what the insertion of your registry modification is doing.

    Thanks again.

    Geoff
