I had an issue with ICUE using up over 90% memory on my computer, a few days ago it happened again and now my computer takes awhile to load me into a discord voice channel or to load up a Youtube video. Is it possible to fix the problem without changing computer components?

If the computer is a desktop can you post the brand and model name or number of the power supply (PSU).

 

Download then run Speccy (free) and post the resultant url for us, details here, this will provide us with information about your computer hardware + any software that you have installed that may explain the present issue/s. 

 

To publish a Speccy profile to the Web:

  1. In Speccy, click File, and then click Publish Snapshot.
  2. In the Publish Snapshot dialog box, click Yes to enable Speccy to proceed.
  3. Speccy publishes the profile and displays a second Publish Snapshot. You can open the URL in your default browser, copy it to the clipboard, or close the dialog box.

Physical Memory
Memory Usage: 37 %

 

 

Something is still using up a lot of your RAM.
 
Speccy is not telling us so need to ask, what speed is your RAM.
 
Noticed the presence of Malwarebytes on the PC, is it the on demand scanner or have you had the full AV installed on the PC.
 

Power Profile
Active power scheme: High performance

 

 

 

Change the Windows Power Plan to Balanced, Ultra and High Performance are a form of overclocking that is known to cause stability and overheating issues, the setting should only be used for gaming type notebooks that have a discrete GPU that needs the extra power.

 

 

Open Task Manager, click on Processes, let things settle down then make a note of what is shown to be using up the most RAM.

 

Suggest that you uninstall any drivers for hardware that you no longer have.

Strange but glad to hear it and thanks for letting us know that you no longer require assistance.
