150KB?

That's not unusual IMHO...not to mention, in these days of gigabyte RAM it also amounts to virtually nothing.

There's nothing to fix.

You mean 150MB - sorry then. That's definitely too much. Does this happen right after booting the system or at some point later on?
Can you post a screenshot of all your running processes in Task Manager please?

You might also post a snip of your Resource Monitor to see exactly how Windows 7 is allocating your resources.

It's not terrible but it is a bit unusual. The most that any svchost.exe process on my system ever uses is about 40MB. Just about any installed non-Microsoft service could be responsible for this.

No, it is NOT. There is nothing unusual about.

People need to stop poking their nose in Task Manager looking for a problem when there is no problem. This is not Windows XP, the Memory Manager does things differently.
