    RAM Leak Win8.1_64x (Memory Leak) + Picture.


    Just got on the computer now, and suddenly everything seems to be slow, I checked the memory and found out that some program is using 94% of the memory, when I was looking for the program I found out that no program is using that amount of memory, 200 at most.

    I downloaded RAMmap to map out the memory, and found out that about 94% of the memory is Nonpaged Pool (unallocated?)
    . Please see the image below:

    As you can see the memory leak clearly.
    This is a new PC with windows installed a few days ago.
    Win8.1 64x (all up to date) intel i7 haswell, z87g45 Gaming, 8Gram, gtx650ti boost, 128G ssd.

    Here is a second picture, after a computer restart, without firefox it gets to 15% although there is no application who is running on 15% (of 8G, is about 1,000MB of process, which in the picture you can see that it cant be). - maybe it's ok maybe not, in both cases there is a leak as you can see in the first post.

    I would first suspect that there is some sort of virus causing this and since it's a brand new install I would reinstall windows to see if the problem comes back. Make sure it is a CLEAN reinstall as in format the C drive prior to installation.
