Suspecting memory leak in driver.

Hey!

So I have a PC with 8GB of RAM. When I sit at the desktop the PC uses about 50% of RAM. The problem that I can't find the source of this in the process manager. I have downloaded poolmon and I do see something taking up alot of space(250MB) but I can't locate the source of this as I have never experienced this before.

I have tried to search on google but I have been unable to find a guide that explains how to solve this issue in a clear manner.

Here is an image of my poolmon results.

A screenshot of Task Manager - Performance tab would be useful. 250 MB usage in the kernel is quite small compared to 8 GB total memory.
