Windows 7: AVG reports high memory usage.

AVG reports high memory usage.

I have a HP Notebook with 4GB of memory. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. The processor is Intel i3 2.20GHz. I have the free AVG installed as my anti virus program and I believe that I am getting some inaccurate reports from it. The following has happened three times witnin the past couple of weeks: A message pops up that says, "AVG has reported Internet Explored is in high memory usage. It is recommended that you close some of the programs that are open." Those may not be the exact words but basically that is what it was telling me. I had no applications open and had only two or maybe three at the most pages open. I would certainly think that 4GB of memory would take care of having three pages open in IE. Could it be that AVG is just giving some false reports? Has anyone had this happen before? Thanks. Frank
