Something's happened in the past couple days that has caused a massive memory leak while playing TF2, bringing my frames-per-second to its knees for a few minutes before restoring itself to normal as if nothing had happened. Then it repeats itself over and over again. The Task Manager shows the CPU amount used by hl2.exe to be well over 500k when it's having this fit. When at rest, it only consumes about 110k)
I've retraced my steps and uninstalled EVERY program i've installed in the last month in an attempt to fix this issue. I've even uninstalled/reinstalled TF2. The problem still remains.
I'm going to run a virus scan overnight to see if maybe I've got something, but in the meantime, what are some ways to fix these types of memory leaks?
