are you running tests with all app shutdown, just windows running  .
Code: [Select]
Nope, I am running the same startup software, except that BlueStacks Android Service-0.5GB memory usage.
So I need -0.5GB for the result before windows update.
----
So yup, 2.0-0.5=1.5GB for the 1 week+5 days.
1.9-0.5=1.4GB for restart, before windows update.
And after windows update, it is been tested without the BlueStacks Android Service.
So yup, I get a few MB less after windows update, it can be count as memory leak or human error.
----
Still higher than your Windows 7, will use some time to find out which is the memory killer. ;)
----
After a few restart of the services, and some Asus software.
Yup, still the same, time to kill some process. ;D
----
I am back, 1.9GB with same software(now), compare to 2GB with same software(before killing the process). :)
And yes, one of the bloatware software is the anti-virus. ;)
Killing the software and services until leaving the services that need for basic and networking, I can get 1.1GB. ;D
A restart of the computer giving me 1.4GB, and I shutdown and bootup, 1.3GB, before the anti-virus loading any database(yup, it delay the database loading, which it means don't scan the boot file when boot).
TL;DR:Yes, human error ;D
Maybe some of them are right?
They say windows will decide how many memory will be used, based on how many GB of Ram. :)

But, I think just using MSE as the anti-virus, don't use other anti-virus and this is enough to reduce the memory usage. :)

OT:I wonder when MS will fix that platform update they did for win7 and IE10 , seems it affected many users with various vid cards .
You means that DirectX update, right?
They cancel the push, as it causing so many software stop working properly.
Firefox, SweetFX for directx 9 game, RedeonPro, D3DOverrider and more.
For windows 8, only D3DOverrider stop working properly.
I don't get any news about it, so I think they are trying to improve the compatibility(←This word is so hard to remember :P) before push it again?

For who has that update installed, I will say, uninstall it manually!!!
It just stop install the update from windows update, but not uninstall it automatically. ::)

Ya, I start thinking that, before push the patch, did Microsoft really testing that patch with popular software like Firefox, chrome etc, which using hardware accelerate. :)
And why that issues don't happen with Windows 8?

I think they pushed it so IE10 would work in win7 . win8 comes out of box with IE 10 ??

It now seems like they are just pushing it to be fixed on other dev's , makers of vid and software .

You would think if they put it in windows update it be solid ,tested patch/update .

So, I think they only tested with IE 10, and say, it works!
And push the patch. ;D

Just kidding, but some of them getting more stable from that patch(I forgot what stable they get), just it broken for some software too, and that is our daily use browser, Firefox/Chrome/Opera.
IE 10 not our daily browser. ;D

I know this is off-topic, but if you think it is better for split as a new topic, just do it. ;)
----
This is happen suddenly, I don't know what just happen, but I saw the system process just become a CPU eater, and I can't do anything to stop it except shutdown or restart. :o
This is what will happen, if there are system fault, you are out of control to fix/stop it.
And I am buffering the video, that too bad for me. :P

PS:I just remove the driver name from the picture.
----
Ok, I found who is the gunner, Nightly+HTML5 Video with Audio+Flash Player? :o
Let see I can saw him again or not. ;D
----
No luck for that, but I also don't want that luck. ;D
----
lol, I face other issue, the window go through/on front of the taskbar.
But just fixed it by just switching the windows. ;)

I found a windows 8 bug.
When you are using some software to shutdown like, after download finish, shutdown the computer.

It really shutdown the computer!!! ;D
The windows forget I has enabled Fast startup, which means a fake shutdown that using hibernate and store only the part of system data into the file.
Quote
Fast startup is a setting that helps your PC start up faster after shutdown. Windows does this by saving system info to a file upon shutdown. When you start your PC again, Windows uses that system info to resume your PC instead of restarting it.

Notes
•The fast startup setting doesn’t apply to Restart. You need to shut down and then start your PC again for fast startup to take effect.
•Fast startup is turned on by default in Windows.

So you're saying that when third-party applications invoke the ExitWindowsEx API, the shutdown doesn't utilize the fast startup mechanism?

Yes, I am using Free Download Manager to Shut down after finish download.
Then I go to sleep, and the morning I found the boot become slow, then I check the start up time, 00:01:xx.
You can try for it with Process Lasso?
I wonder did it affect Process Lasso shut down function or not. :)
----
I also has a BSOD just a hour ago, maybe will try to debug and see that is windows 8 issues or not.
----
Nope, not windows 8 issues. :)

Check out StartIsBack .. hxyp://startisback.com . Rarely do I recommend someone else's work.

It may be unnecessary soon, Microsoft is going to restore the Start button to Windows 8.1.

A start Button or a classics start Menu?
----
Yup, start Button only.

And I hope the transparent of the Metro Menu also provided, not just desktop wallpaper. :o
So that one of the classics start menu feature(you can see what's other software is showing/doing as it only taking some part of the screen) can be "see" through the Metro Menu. :)
