Hello everyone. Yesterday I did a clean install of Windows because I built a new computer. I had Windows 10 on my computer before I did a reinstall and everything was working just fine. I noticed the first day after getting my computer all setup and working that my memory usage was higher than ever. It never usually goes above 6 out of 8 gigs, but it has. I think it has to do with Steam. Whenever I download a game, over time it goes up gradually of .1 or .2 every few minutes, and then after a few hours, it maxes out and the mouse lags and I can't even shut down my computer so I have to hit the power button. I think it also does it even slower when I just have it on idle. I read the forum post from a few years ago about a memory leak and followed "cluberti" advice. I did a perfmon of my memory, but I do not know how to read it, so I am going to post it here and hopefully you guys can and help me out with this. Thank you. http://www.mediafire.com/download/1ufpfuzyf5g4vsz/System+Monitor+Log.zip
