Hi, my system runs permamently on 100% memory, even in clean boot.

Thought I have memory leak, recorded pool activity with Windows Performance Recorder, dropped into Win Performance Analyzer - Pool Graph Section doesnt show any increasing memory use but EtwB uses 1.3GB. Can't locate the driver.

I've tried troubleshooting, driver updates, poolmon, registry cleaning.

Think started when I've uninstalled Photoshop, Indesign and McAfee at once.

Uninstalled McAfee for Avast, uninstalled Avast - run without antivirus now.

Win 8.1 64 bit 16 GB Ram, i7-4500U, Dell Inspiron 7000

Any Ideas Please?

Please provide information about your computer, this includes is it a notebook or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is a brand name provide the model name or series number (not serial) if a custom build post the brand and model name or number/s for the MB and the Ram, providing these details will enable us to better assist you.

If you are not already aware of this Windows 8 has it`s own AV protection, this is the new and improved Windows Defender and it basically offers the same protection as Microsoft Security Essentials, if no third party AV software is detected by W8 Defender should auto enable to protect your computer, on occasion it does not auto enable though so can you please check if it has in, Control Panel > System and Security > Action Center > Ensure that each appropriate security setting is "on".
