I have a laptop running Win7 64bit with 8GB RAM but for some reason the Memory usage keeps on increasing. After restarting, around 2GB is in use. And then, it keeps on increasing until the PC cannot handle it anymore and asks for a restart.
I got rid of some software and did a full scan on my Trend Anti Virus but it wasn't successful.
More about :extremely high memory usage 7gb running win7
@scout_03 thanks for the suggestion. I ran malwarebytes but it said the PC was clean
@azn cracker good idea but its not an option for me right now
@cliffro I did. But there were no major single consumer of RAM. Just a lot of similar named processes that keep on gobbling up the memory.
Usually my PC would be running Chrome with various tabs, a music/video player, random MS Office/PDF at times. I play some video games as well. The RAM usage keeps on increasing until it prompts a restart
It's supposed to be a pretty good laptop well. 3rd Gen i7, 2GB Graphics, 8GB RAM
Well seems like no antivirus or antimalware is detecting anything. Did this start recently? If so then do a system restore back to a point where everything was working. Last resort would be a reinstallation of windows
