Release 10240 Intermittent very high memory usage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Only since updating to 10240 I am experiencing very high memory usage, this slowly builds to as high as 90% usage of 16Gb? Windows Defender seems to be the biggest culprit. This didn't happen on any previous builds. On a reboot everything becomes normal again, around 20-30% usage but after a few hours it slowly increases

    System is Msi Z97 Gaming 7 Mobo, Intel i&-4790 CPU with 16Gb of RAM. I have tried shutting down some services,etc. but never had this kind of problem running 8.1.

    Any help would be appreciated
