Windows 10 has huge memory leak in 352.84 and most likely any other build but 350.12

    I have to test other builds but at least 382.84 (windows 10 keeps forcing the install from windows update, had to disable the service) causes ntkrnl.sys ie System memory to grow to over 3+gb while playing GTA5 or other games

    Also they rather had bad stutter. and lower FPS

    Im pretty sure I installed other driver builds like 353.17 and also performed rather bad and had mem leak issues

    after Installing 350.12 and disabled windows update service the gameplay is smooth and ntkrnl memory maxed at 520mb and remained stable

    This issue was observed in 10130 and 10147

    gta5 process ram usage is normal, but ntkrnl.sys mem usaage keeps raising and it would not dump it even if I exited games or killed processes when using 352.84

    eventually it would dump its mem usage at some point.

    [​IMG]

    this is after I disabled the windows update service and moved back to 350.12 otherwise its memory usage would get to 3GB or more and eventually I would see the windows message warning me that I ran out of ram and it would kill proccesses and this happened several times with no web browser or game running or anything other that the base OS processes

    After I get some sleep I will test other driver builds and try and see if this bug is just in 352.84.

    Also note that the memory "used" wasent being used in cache ie shown as "standby" in task manager performance->memory. it was being used and held by ntoskrnl.exe ie System

    (meh Im tired sorry for calling it ntkrnl or ntkrnl.sys :p its ntoskrnl.exe)

    that's certainly not normal, you are affected by a memory leak bug in that game. around 2.5 gb max is normal.

    Something wrong there. My system uses 28K with GTA V running. Game uses about 2/2.5GB.

    I get the same problem with gta v in windows 10.

    I have to turn most of the setting down in the game or the whole system comes to a stop.

    the game starts out with good fps but then couple minutes later it goes to 4fps and eventually crashes bringing system with it.

    What has any of this got to do with pirating games?

    sometimes cracks for pirated games misbehave in the same ways.



    but this isnt the case with the memory leaks happening.

    352.84 completely kills my Windows 10 install. Games all crash and its buggy. I stay at 350.12 but something keeps updating me to 352.84 automatically. I tried turning off automatic updates + experience but every few days it goes forward again, drives me nuts.

    Windows Update keeps pushing the driver down. I haven't found a way to disable it yet. Pagefile left as system managed. I don't notice this with the Witcher, so it doesn't seem to be effecting all games.

    could always disable windows update in services.

    but then the store wont connect.




    why did they intergrate the store into the windows update service:bang:

    have you tried disabling Windows Event Register, and Windows Event Manager (services.msc) in windows 10 / windows 8.1 / 8? It was known that they caused a lot of performance trouble with GTA IV. You can try disabling it just before gaming and told us
