Windows 7: Uncontrolled RAM usage

Windows Server 2008 R2
 
 

When memory usage is high, can you post a screenshot of the Memory tab in resmon.exe (sorted by commit)?

It does seem like one or all of these suggestions worked. I no longer have creeping RAM usage. If I had to guess I think it would be uninstalling Norton and switching to MSE. Thanks to everyone that helped me with this!

Personally, I have never had issues with Norton, but that doesn't mean it can not happen.

The reason I suggested Checking for a New version, or updating is because your Desktop Icon and and taskbar Norton Icons look different from mine. As if a older version, or it was 360.
One reason I was thinking there may be a issue here.


If you purchased a key from Norton, you should be able to download the latest verion directly from the website.
Perhaps there was something wrong with the version Comcast uses? Not sure.


At any count, MSE is a good AV as well, so its just a matter of which you prefer.

Yeah the icon on my desktop just changed actually because it went through a big update to the newest version and the icons changed. So i'm sure it is the most recent thing. Norton is given to me by my ISP Comcast as a part of their package but I think i will just sick with MSE for now as that seems to have cleared some things up.

Just in passing I've read through here. Norton was one of the lower RAM users here. Also you have nVIDIA processes running, such as driver helper that aren't need for GFX usage. Many here in the forum have had probelms arise due to iTunes too. The juschd, Java update doesn't have to run continuously nor Adobe upate or helper service. A few places to cut some more"fat" from gobbling RAM, which win 7 happily does.
You may check Black Viper's website for recommadtions ideas for services to safely change to disabled, maual, etc.
