Re: [Update] Windows 10 Discussion

I'd be inclined to run a full virus scan. Invisible processes can gobble up RAM.

So you know it is a driver or software issue then, try running your browser in safe mode for a day and report back.

Re: [Update] Windows 10 Discussion

Found the issue.

The Aura Asus software was creating over 2 Million handles in the Task Manager, i had posted on another forum to and someone pointed it out.

I uninstalled the software and system instantly improved. I will now keep an eye on it for a day or so and report back.

I found years ago that the more 'bells, whistles and flashing pretty lights' you have running, the greater the chance for problems to occur.

What works fine on one system may well crash a different one, you never really know until . . .

Re: [Update] Windows 10 Discussion

I don't know in the later windows but under DOS and earlier windows there was a DOS services function call "Open file with handle" The handle was then used whenever that file was accessed.

Just looked it up and it's still the same.

Handles allow interaction with certain kernel resources. If a process starts spamming them the kernel starts to slow down. Which also happens when the hard drive is failing.

The handles are mainly there so the kernel can track who is using what.
