To me the total memory used seems high for the number of processes running with the most memory used by a process < 100,000K.
I'm just guessing here...

On a Win 7 32 Bit OS with 4GB RAM,

Total memory used is 30%

I'm getting tired of this shit. Several minutes after restarting the computer, physical memory reaches 70%+ with only Microsoft services running.
