Originally posted by: QB the Slayer Well as some one who never turns off the computer I can say that you more than likely have some sort of virus. I have the same OS and run windows for days on end and have never had CCC gobble up resources like you say yours does. I would be looking elsewhere for your solution.
I'd believe you, if it weren't for the fact that I ran 3 different anti-virus toolkits last week due to suspicious behavior (hard disks kept waking up from standby) and came up clean. In the end it turned out to be Skype's update reminder thingy :/

Mmmm you got a point there. Might need to file a bug report at Microsoft instead.
Originally posted by: EydeeAs you run your computer without turning it off or restarting, I bet you're one of those who doesn't install updates because then they'd have to reboot, which is a catastropy. Am I right?
If I am, fire up windows update and install all hotfixes, then try again.
Dead wrong. In fact, Windows been bothering me to reboot my computer since last night due to automatic updates that have been installed.

Keep in mind that if your computer is turned off while you are away from it, it is very unlikely that your house will EVER burn down from a fire started from it.
Not living in the US... house made of stone. Plus, it's an appartment so I'm pretty sure the neighbors would notice. Besides, if some component overheats the system shuts down so meh. Been through quite a couple failures during the years:
- liquid pump died and the cpu vaporized all cooling liquid it could touch before tripping a thermal warning, shutting down the system.
- PSU shorted out and obviously the whole thing turned off.
- hard disk failed and was promptly deactivated by OS.
Yet... house on fire is not on that list.

Waste of 4 gigs then if you still have that much free after half a week. I'm sitting at 170MB at the moment, though roughly 13GB available (have some stuff running). No, did not restart my PC since this thread was started.
Originally posted by: trutissit could be some memory leak from some other software
Another program may or may not cause this issue, sure. I've seen quite a few applications that create hooks, attach plugins and autoload DLLs all over the system in order to be more "integrated" into the UI. Honestly though, do not feel like trawling through a 4GB stack dump to find a different culprit when no other application has been affected.
Originally posted by: trutissalso i have set windows to "automatically manage paging file size for all drives" because some older games require that to work
You are describing Windows 98 I think. Nowadays, everything is virtual memory. The application has no clue whether some region is in the page file or not. All memory is paged in and out of physical memory at the whim of your operating system. When allocating a block of memory, it can be requested that that block resides in the page file rather than physical memory. However, this is not guaranteed. The only guarantee you do have is that if no memory (any) is available, allocation fails and usually your application dies. Either case, may want to lock that down to 1-2GB to prevent disk fragmentation due to constant growing of your page file. Also, prevents funny allocation attacks where a virus claims as much memory as it can. Not really a problem until you have a 200GB page file on your system disk and critical components start to fail due to lack of disk AND memory space.

Resource monitor is lying to you. It only shows you actual _actively_ used memory. Anything that is paged out but locked/reserved will not show. Try using Process Explorer from sysinternals. It will show you that it using a virtual size of around 900MB. The only thing larger on that list is a VMWare instance I have running. I noticed that around 400MB of that is due to .NET assemblies btw.
Originally posted by: trutissand no way ccc it causes to booot your os that slow,remember i never shut down my pc unless there is a power outage.
I'm using a really realy old (8-10 years old) hard disk as I dual boot Linux and had no other disk remaining with sufficient free sectors. CCC loads around 118 DLLs all over your system which is rather noticeable on a slow(er) disk. FWIW, even power outages won't shut my system down due to having a nice big UPS. Gotta love the power company and their power failures happening exactly when you are working on a project.
Originally posted by: trutisstry using resource monitor maybe it shows there what is eating memory,be aware that some 3rd psrty programs like game trainers or something else after closing them are still leaking memory so you need to reboot in that case but only one trainer it did that to me it was a gta4 trainer.
Been there, done that. No I do not use cheats and/or trainers. The AI in most games cheats enough as it is, it makes me feel better that I can beat them while actually following the rules. Also, your GTA4 trainer sounds more like a virus. Trainers in general poke bytes in the target application. Closing both the trainer and the target (some run code in the target process) should close everything.
