Strange Virtual Memory issues on Windows 10 laptop
Posted on 2016-09-13
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?
