I have a Windows 10 pro computer joined to a domain that is receiving "Your computer is low on memory" on a daily basis. When I go to the event viewer, I see Event ID 2004 "Resource-Exhaustion-Detected" Here are the details from one event:
"Windows successfully diagnosed a low virtual memory condition. The following programs consumed the most virtual memory: iexplore.exe (9020) consumed 488427520 bytes, SBAMSvc.exe (656) consumed 153735168 bytes, and Dropbox.exe (2532) consumed 122716160 bytes."
The interesting thing is the programs consuming the most virtual memory change daily when I receive this error. Also, I sometimes receive the low memory alert in the middle of the night when no programs are open.
The low memory issue started after I upgraded from Windows 8.1 pro. I never received this error running Windows 8.1
PC has 16GB physical RAM installed.
Things I've tried:
1) Windows was set to automatically manage paging file, so I set a custom size of initial 4000MB and max 7000MB.
2) I kept getting the memory low error, so for the heck of it I increased paging file to initial 8000MB and max 10000MB - didn't help
3) Update hardware drivers (I may have missed some)
4) Scan for malware using various tools - computer is clean
I'll provide more info on request.
