High Memory usage by ntoskrnl.exe System after upgrading to windows 10 home

Before upgrading to widows 10 ntoskrnl.exe System in my windows 8.1 only use 0.1 mb ram . But now ntoskrnl.exe System uses 250 to 600 mb ram and its usage keeps on rising when I open more apps . On windows 8.1 my Lenovo flex 2-14 with 4 gb ram uses only 1.5 gb of memory and now 2.5 gb of memory . Is it do to any kernel issues or bugs or is windows 10 is designed like this.

Crossing my fingers, but it seems like running through the compatibility wizard with an application I suspected of causing the memory leak fixed it.  My suggestion is to pay special attention to which applications you are using that cause the leak to happen and then run those through compatibility (note that this may be a background or startup application).  You may have to, like I did, basically start off as a 100% clean boot and slowly enable/run programs until you find the one that is causing this.

 I was getting nearly 3.5 GB of System RAM usage/leak, causing me 'windows out of Memory' errors,  but I narrowed it down to one application through trial and error.  Problem could stem from the fact that lots of apps aren't optimized or really made compatible fully Windows 10 yet and this is the price we may pay until they are all up to speed.

Check out this video just put out on Channel9: particularly from 18 minutes onwards.

Seems this behavior is by design.

Cada ves que se pone actualizar el sistema, se pone de ese modo la memoria RAM y si me desconecto del internet se soluciona. Llega a tal punto que se bloquea por completo la PC y mas si abro los navegadores.

This didn't work for me. Have been having these issues for months now.  Taken loads of things off the PC but it seems to be ntoskrnl.exe that's causing the huge memory issues :(

worked for me :

-create a text file with notepad and this :

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\TimeBroker]
"Start"=dword:00000003

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\SysMain]
"DisplayName"="Superfetch"
"Start"=dword:00000003

-save it as *.* - fixram.reg (NEED .REG)

-double click to apply

-reboot

What is it with Windows Answers that you guys can never take issues seriously?

'You and 195 other people had this question'

This tells me this issue is not something specific with OP's machine, but instead a more generic issue... If it is indeed an issue at all, it could be by design, as OP himself already suggests.

Instead of reacting to OP with some on-topic discussion, you copy-paste a standard plan to do all the standard things to tackle e.g. driver issues. You guys do this all the time.

Extra bad about this is that, if OP takes your answer serious (which he shouldn't) he will spend hours achieving nothing. Maybe better in such cases to not respond at all, or respond with something like 'We are investigating this issue'.

Honest question: Do reports like these get forwarded to MS techs actually working on Windows?

Thanks for saying this, it is very true and angered me when I read it.  Even I knew it wasn't as easy as doing a virus scan.  

But I did, so I knew it wasn't that.  The wasted time is really what I agreed with, nothing worse than going down a rabbit hole

Worked with Solidworks 2015. I ran it in compatibilty back to windows 7 mode, and it kept that evil RAM monster down. I have 32 GB ram and it was at 100% usage. not cool.. not okay...  Fix this glitch Microsoft!
