Describes an issue where drivers newer than 126.96.36.19987 are causing dwm.exe (Desktop Windows Manager) to produce memory leaks.
dwm.exe produces memory leak with 6th Generation Intel® processors through 10th Generation Intel® processors. The dwm.exe memory usage starts low (~30MB), accumulates over time, and may result in a system crash.
Install Intel® Graphics – Windows* DCH Drivers driver 188.8.131.521 or a newer version to fix the issue. If Windows Update distributes a different driver, a clean driver installation should be performed before installing driver 184.108.40.2061, which includes a fix for the dwm.exe leak.
