Possible Memory Leak on Aero 1.5.8

Recommended Posts

DWM.EXE is eating a lot of RAM, up to 10GB and from time to time I have to kill it. It usually surges after I open Steam or some YouTube tabs on chrome. Windows version is 16299.309. Is there any debug info I can collect to help solve this?

With regards.

I'd try downgrading/upgrading graphics drivers. Whatever the issue is, it's something specific on your end. Win10 DWM on my end consumes about 65 MB, while Win 8.1 version consumes 50 MB. I have 2 monitors, which also affects memory consumption.

It's definitely related to non standard window composition.

Steam and Chrome (with a theme that adds back glass frame) make the memory consumption goes boom.

Could any of you test any of these scenarios? Run Steam client or try Chrome with the theme "Skin of Glass (by Skarv)"?

Thanks
