I've done a fair bit of failed research on this, but cannot find any solution.
I've got an ASUS running windows 10, i5 processor, 4Gb ram, though it happened before I 'upgraded' to W10
Basically, whichever browser I use (Chrome, Edge, Firefox), the memory usage, just increases until the thing seizes up.
When I was using chrome, this manifested itself with 'Shockwave could not load', normally I'd get 'Stop Plugin', then 'Reload' as options.
Using Edge (which is not all that shit), the memory usage still steadily increases, though I don't get those message.
I tried running in Chrome in Windows 7 compatibility mode which worked for a while, in as much as memory wasn't being chewed up so fast, but did eventually crap out.
Trying to identify what has changed since 'everything was ok', I could probably identify getting the full AVG anti virus paid for suite and the motherboard being replaced.
However, the way memory gets sucked up when browsing the internet points at how the browsers are working (unless AVG is causing this - no excessive memory visibly being used).
normal websites I visit are here, SWF and the ladbible. My solution right now is to only open one tab at a time and close it as soon as I have read it. I used to like scrolling through a forum and opening multiple tabs which I would then read as a group, but this is no longer viable. Which I consider shit.
Anyway, could be anything, but can't use the frickin computer really. Any advice appreciated.
