Thanks Ed, but I’ve had no joy. I’ve tried unloading everything I can think of, and installed The Great Suspender, a Chrome addon that reduces memory usage by suspending inactive tabs, but it still happens. The odd part is that it happens more on my desktop with 16GB than on my laptop with 8GB. It’s as if Windows can’t figure out what to do with that much RAM.

I’ll try running Memtest overnight tonight again and see if it picks anything up.

Dave: I’ve got a 3TB spinner, but now that I’ve got the NVME drive, I’ll be using the SSD for Photoshop and my games, so hopefully that will speed things up too :yahoo:
