Hi, I downloaded a bluray video and ended up with multiple m2ts files. I merged them with tsmuxer, and ended up with one big file.

I tried to play it with vlc player, but it wouldn't play. A website suggested changing the extension to mts, and it may play.

Now this is where the real problems started. Windows explorer froze when I tried to change the extension.

I had to restart the computer. Now every time windows boots up there is a massive memory leak and the ram is gone within minutes.

I have done scannow /sfc, and windows command prompt says they are repairs that can't be done; but it has said that before when I scanned, and this problem didn't exist.

I am trying tweaking.com repair.

System restore did not work. Safe mode behaves the same way.

 

Thanks for the assistance.

I have run check disk from command prompt, and it says there are errors.

It also says the volume is in use by another process, so I will have to use check disk on a reboot.

The windows event viewer says, "The desktop windows manager is experiencing heavy resource contention."

It is error number 500 and 501.

This may or may not be related to the memory leak, ram loss.

Check desk scanned and did a repair on windows reboot.

It said it found disk errors, extensions I think, but not physical errors.

I did not disable the windows ndu network data usage monitor via the registry in controlset001 as some google searches have suggested.

The chkdsk boot repair seems to be holding, and found and repaired what needed fixing.

No, check disk didn't work.

I have now just disabled windows network data usage monitor in the registry.

Hope this works.

Disabling the ndu did not work.

The memory leak is from superfetch.

I had stopped superfetch yesterday from the task manager. After I downloaded a huge file, superfetch kept hammering the disk drive for too long.

So I stopped it. And now it has a memory leak.

 

Any suggestions?
