Prevent vmmem from running.

Last Modified: 2020-01-29
After Windows 10 startup a process called VMMEM runs for approximately 2 minutes, utilizing around 75% of CPU. Aside from the resource intensive nature of this process, what is even more absurd is that I am not running any virtual machine that I am aware of. This problem only started to appear in the past month. Prior to that I have used Windows 10 for 2 years and never saw this process running on my machine. I have searched Google for a way to prevent this to no avail. Although my machine boots in 30 seconds I must wait 2 minutes while nothing useful is happening.

I need a way to prevent this process from running.
