Crazy page file growth! - Help needed!

Recommended Posts

Hi All, I'm having a strange problem I've never encountered before.  When I first boot my Win10 machine, I have about 17-18GB of disk storage space.  After about 2 hours (often less), my page file has grown considerably to the point where my storage is out of space and my system crashes.  A reset is the only option at this point.  I'm not running anything too RAM intensive (Chrome always takes up the most memory and I'm only doing desktop work), so I'm not sure what's happening.  I suspect there may be a memory leak, but am not sure how to detect it or what would be causing it.  I don't suspect malware or such as I have done scans recently.  I have the option, "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives" check in the System properties.  This happens everytime I use my machine.  I have 8GB of DDR4 RAM and and 240GB SSD.  Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
