What is lxeepswx.exe and why is it using up 87% of my physical memory?  When I boot up my computer, lxeepswx.exe starts to write to memory and just keeps writing. Eventually I get "out of memory" errors when I try to run programs or open websites. Any ideas?

I would never suggest a "fix" that relies on the use of any "optimization" tool.

 

If you have a Lexmark printer installed...I suggest uninstalling all of the Lexmark software, running the system without such...then, if system performs properly, reinstall the Lexmark software/printer.

OldPhil; I appreciate the advice and link, but I was reluctant to use it because I didn't have any of the associated  lxeepswx.exe-related error messages that the "fix" would supposedly resolve.  instead, i adopted a more cowardly approach and rebooted my computer several times in a row.  After the third reboot, the "memory overflow" issue did not occur.  I'm not naive enough to think the problem is actually resolved, but I think I'll just keep an eye on it for now and see if and when it re-occurs.  I'll still keep an eye on the forums for other occurrences and possible solutions.

hamluis;  I do, in fact, have a Lexmark printer hooked up to this computer.  You obviously have your reasons for not trusting Lexmark printer drivers.  Your suggestion for temporarily uninstalling the Lexmark SW will be the first thing I try if the problem reoccurs.  thanks.

No "distrust" of Lexmark printer drivers...but the you named appears to be a Lexmark file...and printer files, like any other file, can become damaged and malperform :).
