Hello,

This may be a possible malware, virus or spyware or you currently have outdated or faulty drivers on your PC.
We would recommend to try the following;

- Run a full virus scan
- Update all your drivers, the most basic drivers are sound, graphics, and network drivers, which are often the root cause of memory leaks as reported by several affected users, following the Windows 10 upgrade.

You may try as well to disable the Runtime Broker to fix high CPU and memory usage. Runtime Broker is one of the system's process which often consumes a large portion of the CPU cycles, due to its poor memory optimization..
To disable;
- Go to Start menu > Settings app and then open System > Notifications & Actions. Deselect the option "Show me tips about Windows" and reboot the computer.

This should help fix your memory leak on your PC.

Hi,

Kindly try to manually disabling the network data usage driver (the culprit) by following these steps:

- Open up "regedit" and go this key. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Ndu

- Change the "Start" value to 4 (to disable it).

This may be the cause of your network usage that is using too much of your CPU.

Hmmm... Has it made any improvements on your memory leak? or does it still occur?

still occurs :(
 
Memory leak is in non paged pool. Run poolmon.exe and read the pool tag for the driver that is using yor non paged pool. Then look up the pool tag to find the name of the driver. or use find star to grep your drivers directory for the pool tag. thie will give you the name of the driver.

You could also Google, how to force a memory dump using a keyboard. Make the registry settings. Set your memory dump type to kernel. The next time you have the problem, force a memory dump, put your kernel dump on a server an post a link.

nvm i still have the issue -__-
 
google poolmon.exe and download if from the windows device driver kit.http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ntdebugging/archive/2012/08/30/troubleshooting-pool-leaks-part-2-poolmon.aspx

you could also force a kernel memory dump with a keyboard put the memory dump on a server and post a link and have someone with a windows debugger take a look.

i think i have found which driver is causing the issue. As you can see the tag is called "Wfpn" this one is a pooltag for netio.sys so that means my killer network interface is causing the memory leak. Cause i don't remember updating the driver of that so i will update the driver now and let you know how it goes.

 
yep, it will be a network driver as the most likely cause.
(can sometimes be a bluetooth driver or a usb wireless driver but the killer ethernet drivers are a common source of problems)

Hello,

Sorry for bringing up such an old post, but I have this problem and have tried every solution I have found so far - but with no success.
When I run poolmon.exe I get Wfpn and NDNB listed as the memory leak culprits. I tried the "sc config NDU start= disabled" which didn't change anything. I also tried changing Start value in regedit for Ndu to "4" but still nothing changed. I have an MSI motherboard with Killer network built-in, but I uninstalled all Killer software and only reinstalled the driver. Only the Win 7 driver works for me, even though I have Windows 10.

Getting really desperate. Any other possible solutions?

I was able to fix my memory problem by doing the following:

1. Update all drivers, including NVIDIA 368.22. Restarted a few times.
2. Set virtual memory to let it be chosen by Windows.
3. Uninstalled programs I did not use.
4. Unistalled AVG. Don't really need it.
5. Followed these steps:

Step 1. Hit Windows Key + R Type in Regedit and then hit Enter.

Step 2. Go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management in the editor.

Step 3. Find ClearPageFileAtShutDown and change its value to 1.

Step 4. Restart the computer.

After all these steps, no more issues with being kicked out due to memory problems.
