I seem to have a very bad memory leak and I have no idea why. It gets real bad even with only a few programs running with 12GB of RAM.

Here's what poolmen.exe gave me, as you can see, there is a program that uses A LOT of memory: Poolmon diagnostic

I found the culprit, rdyboost.sys that seems to be ReadyBoost byt of course.. Microsoft:

Faulty driver

I googled it, but cannot find a solution, only a post from a guy contacting Microsoft support, to which they sent a generic stupid answer, then stopped answering: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-performance/rdyboostsys-causing-memory-leaks-on-windows-10/e133821d-d9ef-4ecd-959f-1537b79c955b

Anybody has any ideas how to get rid of that problem?

I have Windows 10 installed on an SSD by the way, I know ReadyBoost is used with flash drives, so I don't know if the problem is linked to that since SSD is flash memory
