Please list your installed programs. At risk of sounding like an "anti-fanboi" I have one native MKV filter in mind. You'd know what I'm talking about if you understood what NATIVE in Windows 7 media really means -- it is a Media Foundation filter or not?

Hi,
Same memory leak problem here !
I'll give you some infos on my sys to help out :

Since the very first install of win 7 64 on my new Crucial SSD, I have this leak. Slowly but surely, after each and almost any program use, my memory fill up until I need to restart my sys.

Freq used prgr :

Java (when I use it, my memory jumps at least for 1 GB and never goes down).
Outlook (not sure of what it eats)
MPC & KMP player (for watching MKV & Avi movies. Memory get eaten a bit each time)
I use google chrome to surf the internet
I run Avira Antivir Personal to protect my sys and Windows 7 integrated firewall
I run games (like starcraft 2 beta mostly those times) and it jumps for 1,5 GB never going back down.

Hope it helps,

I'll get back with a program list, but I have noticed that the problem seems to center around particular .mkvs. I convert my dvds to mkv for media serving, and I discovered the one that was causing the most problems recently no longer has an MD5 checksum match to its backup, which plays perfectly.

This is not the only problem, because Windows leaks into memory on many occasions, but a corrupted .mkv seems to be a major trigger for it...

What are you all basing these "leaks" on? What memory metric provided by what authority? Just because "Free" memory in Task Manager goes down does NOT mean you have a leak.

Previously I had run ZoomPlayer install center and checked every filter available, including ffdshow, Gabest filters, etc; I reinstalled windows and installed just these items, and it seems to be OK at the moment:


I don't think it requires any particular "authority" to confirm that memory usage is actually reaching 4GB when the system becomes unresponsive as quickly and as permanently as it has been.

Has nothing to do with fanboism.

Have a nice day!

Did you ever have a look in Resource Monitor > Performance tab. It would be interesting to see the distribution in the color bar. If, e.g., you would have a lot of orange (Modified), a larger page file could alleviate the problem.

Yeah it is rarely orange:


The issue is that this goes from 1GB used to 3.8GB used in a matter of seconds, and only stops when killed or system lock; it could fill a 2TB pagefile if it was allowed.

Another reason it's definitely a leak is that a 700MB file can fill up 4GB of ram.

I would do a "Diagnostic Startup" using msconfig.exe, and check memory usage after a while to see if the memory leak persists.
If there is NO leak : I'll re-enable the startup entries one by one and continue this series of test.
If there is still a leak, the maybe a low level system component (not necessary MS side) could be the origin of the problem such as : hardware driver, antivirus, ... and I'll have to uninstall and recheck one by one.
This how I'd do, hope it'll help you.
