Hello Icarus,

This is normal, and no action is needed on your part.

Windows 7 will load items into memory using superfetch that it thinks you may need to help improve performance. If it doesn't need it, or the RAM is needed for something else, then it automatically gets released so that you are able to use it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Nope, nothing to worry about. Windows 7 is designed to make use of the available RAM like this by default. Anytime anything is loaded into RAM, it will stay in RAM until something else needs it while Windows 7 is running. Unused RAM is wasted RAM.
