Question

Essential computer process's randomly take up too muchmemory

by GiggityGiggityDiggity / December 28, 2017 9:15 PM PST

So I'm playing my games on steam, and suddenly notice a massive frame drop. I open up task manager, scroll all the way down and this one program is taking up more than 10,000 MB of memory. I don't want to end it because apparently I would delete essential system files.

Any help?

Service Host: Windows Push Notification

It was some other one yesterday but it was related to server host.

There are priors. But I'll add a setting I change.
