Hi,

 

I  am playing this game on a popular game website that uses flash and I have a separate browser for that (Firefox). So I was playing this game and as time passed, the flash plugin reached 2.4 GB of memory in the taskmanager. The result was that the browser stopped responding and I ... couldn't break my record.

 

This has been happening now very often lately and I don't know what is causing it. Recording the screen also puts a lot of stress on the pc and I am not sure it should be having this behavior. I am using screen recorder while gaming for youtube videos, could this be damaging my computer?

 

My system is a fairly fresh win 7 ultimate installation. My previous installation collapsed and we all thought it was the HD dying but  after reinstalling everything works (not insanely fast but works).

 

Flash is up to date. Firefox is up to date (though 32bit version, could that be a problem?). The nvidia driver is up to date. Could I be missing some drivers or could this be a hardware problem? Seagate tools shows no HD issues. I downloaded a program called TechPowerUp to see if there is a problem with the graphic card but I can't really interpret the numbers.

 

Any ideas welcome.

 

Edit: I run the windows memory tool that found no problems and these commands to check the HD status that was ok (wmic

diskdrive get status).

 

Edit2: I changed the virtual memory size which was 8.2 GB to 12GB maybe this was the problem.

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
 
post-33068-0-86653600-1480692866_thumb.j

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

I woke up today to an open antivirus that had put in the quarantine few pua, a trojan and a suspicious file from the user temp folder. Maybe this was the problem. Thinking to format again.

 

This VulkanRT has a folder in C:\Users\Trinity\AppData\Local\Temp

 

and when I try to delete it it says that "This folder is shared with other people [..] Share name: VulkanRT"  WTF.

 

Although I scanned with 2 antiviruses and malwarebytes and they don't find anything more suspicious. I kind of lost my trust in AVs today. The files it found were on my pc for a long time and I always scan the downloads before I execute. So what's to say there is no more malware now that is undetected?

 

For the record here are the logs:
