Service host local system using too much RAM
For those of you experiencing this on a windows 10 machine, I feel your pain. I noticed this after I did a factory reset of my laptop and it's taken me two days to work out what the problem was. Looking at task manager it showed Service host: local system was using 500mb and the longer I had the computer on the higher it would go. It got to 2,000mb and I was starting to get worried about my computer. I look around for a long time and found out it was the IP Helper service as I tested it by stopping it and the memory climbing stopped. Disabling it is an option for some but for me I hated doing this work around. I decided to update my network drivers as some people have said memory leaks come from the killer network suite as this is what I'm running. Once I updated them the memory leak had stopped and gone back to normal before the factory reset. Hope this helps you guys if you are experiencing the same issues.

F8 factory reset and safe mode key not working?
Windows 10 by default has had the advanced boot options or menu disabled. This is a ridiculous idea because what happens when someone in the world hasn't made a recovery drive and, their whole computer wont boot? This means they cant recover or go into safe mode, because the F8 key just doesn't work. To fix this go to command prompt and run as an administrator. then type bcdedit -set {default} bootmenupolicy Legacy. This will enable F8 to work on boot and u can be happy that you can save your computer from possible death. If u want to reverse this type bcdedit -set {default} bootmenupolicy Standard.

bcdedit -set {default} bootmenupolicy Legacy

bcdedit -set {default} bootmenupolicy Standard
