Consistently getting BSODs (MEMORY_MANAGEMENT) after UK update

Do you have any add-ons in your Community folder? If yes, please remove and retest before posting.
I did have a bunch of addons installed (mostly just scenery additions). However, I removed them all to see if the issue would still occur and, unfortunately, it does.

Are you using Developer Mode or made changes in it?

Brief description of the issue:
After the latest UK update, I am consistently experiencing blue screens of death (potentially due to a memory leak). The only error message I get on the BSOD is MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. This happens in any kind of flight, incl. free flights, bush missions, training sessions, etc. I have tested a wide variety of GA airplanes (like the Cessna 152 and the 172) and the A320neo (both the vanilla version and the A32NX version). At some point within the first 10 minutes of flight, my computer will crash, briefly display a BSOD, and then continue to reboot.

Provide Screenshot(s)/video(s) of the issue encountered:
The BSOD looks similar to the following image:

Detail steps to reproduce the issue encountered:
I have mostly flown around Roskilde Airport (EKRK) in Denmark in a variety of GA airplanes. I can reproduce the issue quite consistently by loading up a free flight around EKRK.

Generally, my system is very stable. My CPU is almost never hotter than 80 degrees C while my GPU hovers at around 67 degrees C under full load.

Did you submit this to Zendesk? If so, what is your ticket #?

have you already checked the well known hint about windows virtual memory ?

How is your setting ? Possible make a screenshot of the windows virtual settings dialog.

Please try Min 4GIG / MAX at least 20GIG (better more).

I assume C: is one of your small SSD, or ?

What is the well known hint about windows virtual memory?

now, as the linked topics describe: not disable it and ensure a sufficent min/max value…
( note: with an update last year the memory consume of msfs was drastical reduced , but I assume the values min/max values mentioned in existing topics are still valid, also if the topic in one year old :wink: )

Beside of already existing links in former post here repeated an example of one of the topics about: Finally.....Solved CTD issues... for those of us with < 32 GB ram - #18 by MichaMMA

May BSODs are more rare related to these, but who knows…

PS.: we have unfortunately a lot of topics where the users created a topic and then we never again hear from the OP what the issue was and how she/he fixed it.
