Straight to the point, noticed non-paged pool rise in Task Manager after I used Window's Defender Full Scan 3 times (which I read after that it isn't recommended).
Checked Task Manager to see that the Non Paged pool was unusually high.
I suspect ismc as it is the highest contributor.
I tried resolving this by updating Intel's RST as it has correlations to the tag, however it made ismc slightly worse (330m Bytes current, 290m prior to updating).
1. How can I fix this high Non Paged pool?
Just want to fix this, thanks in advance.

The answer at the bottom did not work for me as the drivers I had did not meet the requirements.
