Memory Leak - Paging file utilization problem

Hi all,
I have a question for you. Could you tell me please why my system is using 80% of Paging file?
I see no processes using paging file... How could I investigate and find who is the process responsible of this problem? COuld you help me please? If you need some other information I'm here

Thanks





Consider that the system has 4GB of RAM, Windows 7 64bit Edition, page file is set to default

Where are you seeing 80% pagefile usage?
Post a screenshot of Task Manager - Performance tab.

My Nagios check tells me that i'm using 80% of Paging File.
Check is based on Windows Performance Counter so I'm sure it's OK --> % Usage - Paging File object
Look at the Commit GByte on Task Manager --> 9/14. This is have only 4GByte of physical RAM and a Page File set to default
I know that is not a simple question!

The problem is almost certainly due to the number of open handles which is causing the very high value for paged pool. Check the "Handles" column in Task Manager - Processes tab. You will have to add this column.

As the handles are under the System process this is likely a driver issue. Sorry but I don't think I can be of much further help.
