Windows 7: High RAM Usage at idle

High RAM Usage at idle

For some reason I have 2GB (out of 4GB) of RAM being and my laptop is slow in general. Even typing this it's lagging.

I take it this could be a virus?

Probably is cause just having stuff in your RAM would not slow down your computer.

Could be a virus but probably not. take a screenshot of Taskmanager with the apps showing and upload it to us.

Managed to find out what it was. I had Adobe Coldfusion 9 installed and it has a process called jrun.exe and a few other java programs that were using over 700MB of RAM. I've uninstalled it now and it's running well.

Thanks for the replies though.

"Thanks for the replies though" does not apply.

It would be more appropriate to say something like -

"Using Task Manager/Process Explorer, I determined that the problem was X. I found this before reading your replies, which were spot on."

Or something like that.

Ok...

I was just being polite though by saying thanks.

Maybe it is the separation of a common language. Placing 'though' at the end of the sentence modifies the meaning of the sentence.

Thanks for the replies, though I did not need them.

Which, in turn means, Thank you for wasting your time.

I know, I am providing an example of what may appear to be an over-reaction. Perhaps.

Cheers.
