    First check the size of your Pagefile.

    Are you using the new leaked version 17031?
    Are you using old drivers?
    Does taskmgr give any hints as to which programs are hogging memory?

    Size of pagefile I would guess shouldn't have changed, as I'm using the same system as always, and never had this problem.

    I'm using da_windows_8_1_pro_vl_x64_dvd_2971937 same ISO as I always use.
    All drivers updated from manufactor site, exactly as I always do.
    Takmgr doesn't show anything hoggish, all looks normal as always.

    I did not change anything before/durring nor after initial install of Windows, did the same procedure as I always do.

    smells like bad hardware. Your system disc is SSD which can cause the problem even if they say it'll last for 1.5Mill hours

    That's simply true!! I'd tested a few SSD's and back totally to SATA3! SSD's maybe excellent for Games and for those who need to start up a computer in no-time, that's something which didn't matters for me. I'll only start using them again after all those "childhood sickness" is gone!
