When running big programs such as games or running antivirus and spyware full scans the system cache will max out where the program will stop and the system becomes lagged where a restart is needed. Is there a good program I can install to diagnose and fix the leaks? I've found Insure++ and Deleaker but they are addins to the Visual C program which I do not have.

the system cache will max out

Where exactly do you read that info?

Please, post some computer info:
- processor type, amount of RAM (hold Windows logo key, hit Pause/Break key)
- hard drive size/free space (open "My Computer", right click on hard drive letter, click "Properties")
- security programs in use (antivirus, firewall)

You need more RAM, I bet you only have like 512Megs of RAM making your paging file 1Gig. After that runs out you will experience issues like this.

Operating System: Windows XP Media Pro (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 3
Motherboard: Intel 915G mb, 800MHz bus, GMA900 graphics, 224MB ram
Processor: (2)Intel P4 630HT, 3GHz cpu, 800MHz FSB, 2MB L2 cache
Hard Drive: 200GB, 7200RPM, Serial ATA, 8MB buffer
Physical Memory: 4GB, DDR400, PC3200, used 600MB
Power Supply: Antec 430W
Virtual Memory: 2GB, available 1.95GB
Page File: 4.5GB, used 440MB

I'm Using Avast 4.8(had problems with 5.0 so I uninstalled) & Spyware Terminator 2.6.6.196 but cache leak happens with both programs uninstalled also. The system cache amount is listed in the Task Manager under the Performance tab. The system cache amount will slightly exceed the available amount listed then the computer is useless.

Hello M332,

Because you posted a HijackThis logfile I split it from this topic and made a new topic for it, linking to this topic for the Malware Team's reference. Here is your new topic http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...ml#entry1680278 located in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum.

I will close this topic for now. Please be patient, as the MRT are all volunteers and it takes a bit of time for them too attend to the huge volume of logfiles posted everyday. I assure you that your topic will be seen to though :thumbsup: No one gets ignored. If you need this topic reopened M332, please just ask any moderator to do so for you.
