Really hoping someone can help me with this. For the past few months, something's been using up a big chunk of my physical memory. I have 6 gigs of memory. When I start my computer, before I open any browsers or apps, I'm already using 40-50% of my available memory and the computer is overheating. I've tried manually terminating processes one by one, even uninstalling a bunch of programs I don't use anymore, but nothing seems to work. If anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it.
I was able to get some great help in the Virus forum, confirmed it's not malware. But I still have this issue, and can't figure it out. Ran a bunch of diagnostics, you can find it here:
Also, I should note, a few months ago, I had to send my computer back to the manufacturer because the RAM failed. When I think about it, I don't think my computer has been the same since then. Was thinking it was memory related, but Memtest did not find any issues at all.
Thank you in advance, all.
