Excessive modified memory RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    My laptop is having a problem really similar to some other case I found in this forum. If I keep my laptop on for a few hours RAMmap shows over 1.5 gb of modified memory in shareable usage part. So I'm thinking my laptop might have some programme that leaks memory? I'm wondering if i can get help to find out which programme is causing trouble and how to solve this. Thanks before.

    Oh and please be easy with terms when telling me what information I need to give cause I'm not that good with computer. And for general information my laptop is a Samsung RF711

  • Hi,

    Some other community members facing similar problems with the McAfee installed. Do you have McAfee installed? If so,temporarily disable it to test the issue.
