Docker / Vmmem using up my Ram

not so long ago I started to practice with writing EOS smart contracts on my windows 10 computer. For this I needed to install among others, a Linux subsystem for Windows and Docker. In the last couple of days I noticed some pretty significant performance issues, when looking for the perpetrator in my task manager I came across Vmmem using up 1.8 GB of ram (which is quite a lot considering I have only 8GB on my laptop)
I Googled around some and figured out that this program handles virtual machines and such, and with that Docker. I don’t have Docker Desktop or Ubuntu opened at the time of this screenshot, turned off the setting “Start Docker when you log in” and restarted my computer, but still this program is hogging up my RAM. As you may understand, it isn’t worth it for me to keep this running in the background considering this EOS Development is a side-thing for me, hence I don’t need to use Docker often. I would deem it a shame if I had to give up on this ‘hobby’ for performance issues so any help would be appreciated.
