Yesterday my surface got win10 updates pushed and installed, after that the Everything is not working anymore due to fata error from mem_alloc() function.

Here is the information that I collected:

Everything is trying to allocate 8GB ram.

Possible cause is a corrupt database.

Please try deleting your Everything.db and restarting Everything:
  • In Windows Explorer, navigate to:
    %LOCALAPPDATA%\Everything
  • Delete your Everything.db
  • Restart Everything.
