In Windows 10 Home, the "Windows Push Notifications User Service 4e086" begins using up multiple gigabytes of RAM after running for a few minutes. I can end task the process, but it comes back later or on reboot. I have tried disabling the process by unchecking it in msconfig, but it still starts when I restart the computer. I have tried running a clean boot by disabling all non-microsoft services in msconfig and disabling all startup entries in task manager, but the issue still occurs.
I ran a virus scan and Malwarebytes anti-malware scan, did not find anything.
Windows 10 install is only 2-3 months old onto a freshly formatted SSD. Problem has been occurring for a couple of weeks. I'd like to resolve the problem, but I would be okay with just finding a way to disable that push notification process permanently.
Thanks in advance for your help!
