Origin - QtWebEngineProcess excessive RAM

★★★★ Novice



So Origin is using a sub-process called QtWebEngineProcess.exe and as you can see from the attached screen shot from task manager, if left for a hour or two it starts taking up excessive RAM. It will sometimes reach the 1.2-1.3 gig mark and Origin becomes very sluggish.

Ending that task specifically just makes origin freeze for a second or two, it restarts the process and all is good again.

Is this process supposed to act this way?

Hey @Skillet37 rebooting your system should minimise RAM usage.


Check that you are using the most recent version of Origin too.
