Hello everyone. I have a big problem. When i start the latop it runs normally, then it keeps eating memory until it eats all my memory and freezes at 1,60-1,80 GB free for some time then after a while it eats all 16GB RAM. My anti-virus can't find anything on quick scan and it can't run the full cause the ram runs out and the pc just freezes. Please help guys. Thank you!

I would try to install malwarebytes and try and run the quick scan with that.

I tried, but the quick scan didn't find anything so i ran a full one found some stuff deleted them restart and when the windows loaded i got an error that it cannot start Malwarebytes cleanup file or something. The laptop runs perfectly only in safe mode and the full scan was made in safe mode and then it was restarted and loaded windows normally. I'll try again but i think there will be no luck again. But first i'll try MS Security Essentials. Thanks for the advice.

if you still have a problem run the malwarebytes again and look up the name of the files that were found you should be able to find some advice with that.

What process is eating memory? You can find this in task manager, sort by memory column.

The task manager is not showing that process. The biggest consumer is svchost.exe and it takes around 160k witch is not 16GB i think. Some friends told me it might be a virus, so i'm looking into that. So far MS Security Essentials and Malwarebytes are finding only cd-key generators and patches and i'm deleting them, but no luck. I'll try Memtest86 and get back with the results.

Memtes86 found nothing. I did 2 passes with it. Now doing another one with MS Security Essentials. Any other ideas ?

Still nothing even ran AVG rescue cd found some stuff but still that problem. Any ideas for finding that virus who seems to be simulating a windows process. Any good antivirus for that ?

It was a stupid program leak that was re-directing all my memory to modified :)  Stopped the program from starting at startup and it's all better, the usual ~400mb of modified as Win 7 uses. Thanks to all that helped.
