Thanks for reaching out to us.

Can you try disabling Hardware Acceleration in settings to see if this resolves the issue?

You’ll find this in Settings --> Additional Settings --> System --> Hardware Acceleration

I believe the problem was actually windows update 2009 (20H2), as a new patch recently came out, after installing the new windows update RAM usage was normal.

Thanks that worked - turn off accelerator
