Windows 7: High memory usage and crashing

30 May 2012   #1

Windows 7 32 bit
High memory usage and crashing


I use a laptop installed with window 7 32 bit. Recently, the ram usage has increased inexplicably and is leading to display of warnings of low memory even when I am just browsing! (I use Chrome btw)

Here is an image of the resource monitor.

The maximum usage is by a Chrome process of around 131 MB and a total of around 80 processes (from all users) were active. How can the usage be more than 2.5 gb?!

Please help. Thanks.
