I've had some sort of memory leak for a while that I haven't been able to figure anything out about - when I start my computer the RAM usage is fine but it steadily climbs up to over 90% usage over the course of several days. I would really appreciate it if anyone could give me some pointers concerning how to fix this.

Nobody can give any wise counsel before you have not found out what is the cause.

What a program or service causes the problem. It may be absolutely legally installed program, but may be also something, what is installed without asking nothing from You, it may do its work on the  background. Find out, what it is.


Use some startup manager and process manager. Them have available very much. Some are free, some are paid, but usually works well if trial period runs.
Also may be used Autoruns and Autorun Organizer.

So find the apps that are draining ram and terminate em, at the same time you'll know whats draining ram and what the problem is.

What makes you believe this is a memory leak and not just an accumulation of processes made over this period of time?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
