Windows 7: KERNEL NON PAGED MEMORY filling up gradually which leads to Freezing

KERNEL NON PAGED MEMORY filling up gradually which leads to Freezing

When I try to download from firefox or from my download managers letmeatit and freemake, the ram usage increases to 90%+ over a period of mere 2-3 hours.. This has been bugging me since some months and I tried searching the internet but to no avail.. My System is protected by Avast and there are NO viruses OR MALWARES OR SPYWARES as I have Malwarebytes installed as well and the reports come out as CLEAN.. I also installed Super Antispyware just to be sure and the results are clean in it as well...

WISE MEMORY OPTIMISER DOES the TRICK FOR ME for a short amount of time but still the problem persists...

As in yesterday when I was downloading a PPV worth 8 GB from the WWE Network through letmeatit, the Ram usage started to fill up and reached 70%, I then downloaded wise memory optimiser in fear and to my surprise after optimising the usage dropped to 56% and the downloading was on without interruption.. So whenever the ram usage increased in 2 hours or so, I ran the optimiser and why wouldn't I as without the optimiser my download wouldnt have even completed and the computer would have froze..and I noticed the KERNEL NON PAGED MEMORY WAS in 1000's in about 13+ hours.. My computer was downloading continuously for 17 hours but I had to run the optimiser every 2 hours to prevent freezing...

Is it anything about the virtual memory :scratchhead: ??? I checked the task manager and resource monitor every hour and the processes and all were normal to my understanding.. :lol:

To be of any use the screenshot would have to be taken when the problem occurs. The screenshot above shows nothing unusual.

Actually when the problem occurred the following were the figures-

Cached- 400+
available - 400+
Free - 0

paged 200+
non paged 1200+

so did you got the idea abt what i'm talking abt.. the non paged memory fills up leaving no physical memory..

The numbers provided indicate there is a problem but not what is causing it. I wanted to see a screenshot when the problem occurred. There may be something there that points to the cause. Can't know until I see it.

There is nothing unusual in the screenshot except the Non Paged Pool which is about 10 times what it should be. Typically this would be caused by a driver problem or malware. Unfortunately this kind of thing can be difficult to diagnose and beyond my experience.

My opinion of programs like Wise Memory optimizer is very low. I have tried this program just to see how it worked and was thoroughly unimpressed. Obviously the authors have no idea how memory is managed in a modern OS.

Avast used to be great now it sucks

The culprit was AVAST.. After uninstalling it the non paged memory was just fine.. I have now installed AVG... Yay Thanks anyways
