HELP! Photoshop is using all my RAM!

This is weird. It started two days ago and I can't seem to get to the bottom of it. When I open Photoshop and then open Task Manager and go to the Efficiency tab ( I think that is how you say it in English) I just watch as Photoshop steadily eats up all my RAM. And this is without even opening a file. It just starts using it up in 5mb increments until it is all gone and then everything jams up. I have 1.5 gigs of RAM and another 500megs on my video card and it hasn't been a problem up until now.

I went and shut everything down, even disconnected from the internet and opened Photoshop again but the same thing just happens. I Dumped Preferences and reset everything but that didn't help either. Photoshop is only set to use 55% of my RAM so I can't understand how this is happening. My Scratch Disk is set to the D drive which is empty.

Stange thing about it is, if you go to the Processes tab in Task Manager you will see Photoshop climb to its limit and then drop right down to 30 or 40 megs but in the Efficiency tab the computer is still maxed out and everything is jammed up or slowed down to a snails pace.

Anyone else ever experience this?

Syd

Re: HELP! Photoshop is using all my RAM!

I hate to say this but it really sounds like you have a virus on your computer.

If you do have anti virus software run a full system scan if you do not do a search for AVG Antivirus there is a free version for personal use.

Re: HELP! Photoshop is using all my RAM!

Syd, Photoshop has been known to do some very strange things when its preference file gets corrupted. Before you go hunting for viruses I recommend that you reset the prefs by holding down the Ctrl+Alt+Shift while starting Photoshop. If it is strill doing it after you reset your prefs, then there is something else going on with other processes, services, or applications on your machine.
Regards, Murray

Re: HELP! Photoshop is using all my RAM!

If you are concerned that it may be a virus, post a HijackThis log here and I'll have a quick look at it for you.

Download HJTInstall.exe to your Desktop.
  • Doubleclick HJTInstall.exe to install it.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
  • Click on Install.
  • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
  • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Copy/Paste the log to your next reply please.
  • Don't use the Analyse This button, its findings are dangerous if misinterpreted.
  • Don't have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Re: HELP! Photoshop is using all my RAM!

Gary you're a star. I have done a Hijackthis and, at first glance I could only find one entry that I wasn't sure about ALCMTR.EXE but on further investigation found out that it had something to do with Realtek. There is a lot of unecessary stuff there but it doesn't look like there is anything bad (to my untrained eye that is - hopefully you will be able to spot something though)! I'd love to get rid of the unecessary stuff but am a bit nervous that something will go wrong. Just to let you know this notebook is a popular Taiwanese make called Asus. Interestingly, the Asus Live Update programme does exactly the same thing as Photoshop ...it uses up all the computer memory. In fact the problem started with this programme.

Thanks for checking this out for me Gary. I really appreciate it.

Sincerely Syd

Re: HELP! Photoshop is using all my RAM!

Hi Syd,

OK your log looks clear.

Here's the dope on Alcmtr.exe in a strict sense it is Spyware, but it's not a Malicious one, just Realtek being nosey.

Quote:
Name: [alcmtr]
Status: X
File: ALCMTR.EXE

Realtek AC97 Audio - Event Monitor. Sypware file used surreptitiously monitor one's actions. It is not a sinister one like remote control programs but it is being used by Realtek to gather data about customers
http://www.castlecops.com/startuplist-5306.html
If you'd rather they didn't get that information.

Quote:
Run a scan with HJT and when finished check the following items (if found).

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE

Now close all open windows and click Fix Checked to remove them.
This won't remove any files or anything that would affect Realtek, it will just stop that particular process from loading at startup.

If you want to find out and disable programmes that are unnecessary to run at Startup, try using Startuplite. (Details on Webpage linked below).

http://www.malwarebytes.org/startuplite.php

If you need me to go through your log to give you a bit more info on any unnecessary startup items let me know and I'll be happy to do so.

Re: HELP! Photoshop is using all my RAM!

Thanks for your help Gary. Photoshop is still doing the same thing though. I am going to take the computer back to the place I bought it as it is not only Photoshop but also the Laptop Update Programme that is doing the same thing. It is still under guarantee so they will have to sort it out.

Thanks for the link to startuplite. I will check it out.

yours sincerely Syd

Re: HELP! Photoshop is using all my RAM!

You're welcome Syd. If it's still under warranty it's always best to have the dealer/manufacturer sort the problem.

Just make sure you've backed up all your programmes, pics and other personal stuff before you take it in, because pro shops have a pre-disposition towards re-formatting and re-installing to cure all problems.

Re: HELP! Photoshop is using all my RAM!

Gary, that last comment of yours has got me worried. Last time I had a virus on my old computer they did reformat everything and I had to reload all my software and somehow the engineer switched my C: and D: drives around so that my D: drive became the root drive. That would have been fine except that the D: drive was smaller than the C: drive and when it got full I had to keep on moving stuff from D: to C:. It was a real pain in the butt.

Anyway I remembered in an old post you had instructed me to download Kaspersky and do and online scan. I did and it has come up with one virus but because it is the free online scan version I can't remove it. I already have AVG on my computer and it hasn't picked anything up.

Is it okay if I post the Kaspersky Report here? Last time, I remember you got me to download KILLBox! to remove the infected file. To be honest I can't work out what is infected and what is not.

Re: HELP! Photoshop is using all my RAM!

Hi Syd,

You've got a file lurking on your box that would be better removed. Not likely to be the source of your problem I wouldn't think (it's an ad loader), but I'd remove it anyway.

OTMoveIt is my new tool of preference for removing things.

Download OTMoveIt by OldTimer to your Desktop.
  • Double click OTMoveIt.exe to launch it.
  • Copy/Paste the contents of the box below into the left hand pane of OTMoveIt.
Quote:
C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\popcaploader.dll
  • Click the Move It button.
  • The list will be processed and the results will appear in the right hand pane.
  • If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately you may be asked to reboot the machine to finish the move process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes.
  • When finished click Exit to exit the programme.
  • A log C:\_OTMoveIt\MovedFiles\mmddyyyy_hhmmss.log will be created (where mmddyyyy_hhmmss are numbers giving date and time the log was created).
  • Post the log back here please.
