21 Apr 2011   #11

Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate x64

heay dear friends come back to my thread,, actually this was I talking about. when I say,
"my other question is, when I launching many browser tab and some applications, the memory usage reaches to 80 to 90%, but some time, when I closed the all applications, the memory is still stay at the 80 or 90% usage.. then where are the memory is being used..?"
this is happening now when I searching some thing in C: drive with windows search option. I abort searching when its near the end of green bar, but when I return to desktop, my pc is getting heavy and the mem usage is 95%, although I didn't open many thing, only fire fox with tabs. I opened the Resource Monitor, this is its snap, plz tell me where did the mem is being used,, because after this kind of activity or mem usage, the only solution to minimize the mem usage is Restart the Computer,

Something is going on with microsoft security essentials.
I have never seen it eating that much power on my own system.

I would guess it is eating the cpu time as well.
You may want to look into its settings and see that it's not running scans when you are trying to use the system for other things.

One thing to remember. You won't be able to utilize anything more than about 3.5 GB using a 32 bit OS version. To use the 8 and 16 talked about above you need the 64 bit version.

1. I have seen MSE using that much RAM. MSE is a resource hog in terms of RAM.
2. You get a lot of hard page faults. That is a sign that you do not have enough RAM. If you can, add 1GB - even 2GB although your 32bit system will not be able to use it all.
3. Unfortunately you did not show the color bar of Resource Monitor. That would have been more telling.
4. Restarting the PC is not a good idea. You loose the cache, so makes the system run slower at first.

One stupid opinion,try to uninstall the MSE with Revo Uninstaller,and install it again.

Yeah - I'm guessing something on that box has triggered MSE for some reason. Best to remove, make sure you're working properly after removal of MSE (disconnect from the internet or your home network after uninstalling, to be safe, if you're paranoid), and then reinstall to see if the problem returns.

from your printscreen, that's quite a high kernel paged memory isn't it? 600mb
