Strange Virtual Memory issues on Windows 10 laptop

HP laptop with an i7 processor, 12 GB RAM, basic office work, nothing fancy or big. Laptop was recently joined to a domain (Windows Server 2012).

Starting a couple of days ago, the user is getting "low on virtual memory" errors.  It was manually set to about 3GB (not sure why).  I switched it to system-managed.  Today, the low memory error occurs, and when I check the virtual memory settings, it says "recommended: 2423 MB, Currently allocated 36841 MB".  So it has gone ahead on its own and allocated 3 times the amount of RAM.  The Event log for the laptop says:

"Windows successfully diagnosed a low virtual memory condition. The following programs consumed the most virtual memory: LogonUI.exe (6848) consumed 48082767872 bytes, MsMpEng.exe (3488) consumed 142073856 bytes, and MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe (12204) consumed 130625536 bytes."

Maybe my math is wrong, but I think that it's telling me that LogonUI has consumed 45GB, etc.

Do you think one of the programs listed is defective?  Has anyone else experienced this symptom?

can it be caused by the anniversary upgrade?

More information: according to Eventvwr system log, the first time the error shows up in the log is within an hour of joining this laptop to the domain. (Had never been part of another domain.)

 I used the profile program "ProfWizard" to join the laptop to the domain and migrate the non-domain user profile to the domain profile.

maybe a gpo running on the domain?

There are a dozen other computers on the domain with no issues. GPOs are default, nothing fancy.  I've read of many others having the same issue and most seem to trace it down to either drivers or third party software. I'm now checking both.

I would say the anniversary upgrade is likely the culprit - I've seen quite a bunch of random issues over the past week, all starting after that upgrade.

I've done a clean boot and the problem went away. Thanks.
