I have 16Gbs of ram (corsair dominator platinum rgb 2x8), before reinstalling windows I had no issues, but after reinstalling windows, Warzone started to crash with "paging file size error", so I manually set the size to 16gb-18gbs, but it keeps crashing.....
Then I noticed that when playing warzone the computer is using 100% of its ram, that never happened before, when windows is in iddle it is using 38% but the processes do not sum up to that amount...not even half.
Lastly, today for the first time chrome crashed because it ran out of memory when I tried to open warzone while using chrome with 4 tabs opened.

There is an issue with the ram and I can't find what, I had trojans in the past using my cpu/gpu to mining, but it is the first time with the ram, also malwarebytes did not find any threats...

Any help is welcome, I do not know what else I can do.

Task manager:

Safe mode only uses 9% of the ram.

EDIT:
Found the issue, non-paged pool is using 1.4Gb and cached 1.6/2.5Gb, is that normal?

Update your post to include full system hardware specs.

Include disk drives: make, model, capacity, how full?

Also take a look in Resource Monitor > Memory.

Another place to check is Reliability History: look for any memory related error codes, warnings, or event informational events.

Reliability History uses a timeline format that may help identify what happened when the memory problems first began.

Thank you for your reply.

I fixed the issue, it was the RAPID mode of my second SSD, it was allocating 1.2gb in the non-paged pool.

Still I think it is weird that I ran out of ram once while playing a game and using chrome with 3 tabs...that was weird, but it was just once, I will create a new post with more info if it happens again, thank you very much.
