Somebody said that i have too litlle memory for 64-bit Windows. Lets say thats true, will 2GB more be enouf? (4GB total) and how i will find same memory moduls almost 1,5 year after I bought this PC? Can they be different??

Please help.
Thank you.

You are not interpreting the memory usage correctly.

In the other thread, you mentioned that your PC would crash. Can you provide any information about that?

Then why did you installed 64 bit...32-bit is quite compatible with ur hardware !...even though it may be possible that Flashget classic ver. would not be compatible with Windows 7....why not use other download managers....like Internet Download Manager or Free Download Manager ?

IN 2 hr resource you have a total of 1 gig used thats all. thats 51% according to your taskmanager, so how is this crashing your systsem? Could you upload a scrnsht of the errors in task manager relating to either flashget or any app terminating?

Btw min for 64 bit is 4 gigs

If i let it run (downloading) it would use all memory and then crash (stop responding) , i just run that 2 hour test so you can see how fast it use memory.

Few days ago i left it all night and in morning there wasnt any free memory left.

And i used wrong word "crash". It would just stop responding and flashget would stop downloading.

Before W7 64-bit i was on XP 32-bit and sometimes PC would download several days with litlle to none usage of ram.

My PC can handle 64-bit, and i was wondering whats different with 64-bit OS except expanding memory >3GB. And i needed new OS. I didnt know 64-bit is so demanding. And its not like 64-bit canot run 32-bit apps?

I didnt try with other download managers becuse some other member with same problem as me has reported that this "bug" is present with all downloaders. Maybe he was wrong, i dont know, i didnt try.

Here is the guy with 100% same problem who says that all download managers have same problem:

Please explain that, why is 4GB min for 64-bit Win7? Its not like i am running games, its just downloading?

This happens to me too

Whenever I download anything over night, like a large game patch or client, when I get on the computer in the morning all but like 1% of my (4 GB) memory is used up and the computer is consequently very sluggish. Only a restart helps.

I have tried to 'flush' the memory using small apps that do this, even going so far as to have the flush tool (FreeRamXP Pro) automatically flush the memory every 10 minutes throughout the night, but it doesn't help.

I thought perhaps it was my download manager (Internet Download Manager), so I switched to the free Orbit download manager to check. The same exact thing happened. If I start a download at say 10 PM, by 6 AM the memory is full. And the computer won't respond.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Thank you.

In this other thread about the same thing. The guy says that Nod32 was the cause of the problem. So try disabling or delating your anti virus program and see if it helps.

A more appropriate action would be to determine what is causing your particular installation of NOD32 to have this deleterious affect.
