So basically for a while now I've had trouble with a memory leak issue with dxgkrnl.sys "dprt" tag seeming to be the problem, but having a hard time identifying where from. The process comes up as "Unknown" in the paged folder of the trace. This causes my Paged Pool to get to around 4 gigabytes and just stays there. I have a Windows Trace Analyzer file here and I will also share a imgur folder that I put together a little while back to show case what I mean about dxgkrnl.sys going super high on poolmon. is the link to that previously mentioned album, shows a series of programs, a benchmark test I took during a peak time of the problem, along with showing a high paged pool + poolmon results. My components are as follows:

Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z170XP-SLI

CPU: Intel Core i7-6700k

Memory: 2x 8 GB PC4-24000 DDR4-SDRAM G Skill F4-3000C15-8GVKB Memory: 1x 4 GB PC4-24000 DDR4-SDRAM G Skill F4-3000C15-4GRBB

GPU: MSI R9 390 Gaming (MS-V308)

HD (Boot): Samsung SSD850 EVO 250GB HD (Storage): WDC WD10EZEX-00BN5A0 1000GB

OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Home (x64)

Any help is incredibly appreciated and I can do another trace if need be, I'll have to wait for it to re-start leaking as I restarted my computer recently but it does not take long for that to happen. This has severely impacted the performance of my computer during video watching, gaming, virtually anything potentially strenuous.
