Windows 7: [Help] Mapped File using half my 8GB RAM, CPU usage by unknown progs

22 May 2014   #11

Windows 10 Pro

After rebooting, and changing some settings, I seem to be running quite well... MUCH better than before. Awesome.

Disabling the RAPID Mode feature fixed the RAM problem instantly. Both Broadcom and Samsung RAPID drivers no longer use so much ram. In fact, it seems to have stabilized my entire computer ten-fold. IT seems that the RAPID feature heavily affects RAM leakage across all drivers. No wonder this feature was disabled by default, but the feature says underneath it, "Improves overall system performance." Complete BS, at least for my system.

Below are some screenshots of usage:
