Windows 7: Windows 7 64-bit using too much physical memory

After reading all the thread, I'm beginning to think that uTorrent is eating too much memory. It's normally very lightweight but in your case it's using more than 50MB which sounds excessive to me (unless you're dealing with MANY torrents at once).

But anyway, in the last screenshot, no program is using an exorbitant amount of memory really, and Chrome is not even running. I'm thinking that maybe some faulty driver may have something to do. Have you updated all important drivers recently?

Out of curiosity when using a large amount of memory could you upload an screenshot of Task Manager sorted by the "Peak Working Set". You will need to add the column by clicking View > Select Columns and putting a check in "Memory - Peak Working Set"

uTorrent sometimes, on some torrents, uses a lot of memory which you can't see in Task Manager, because Windows, automatically, caches the parts of the upload/download from disk into RAM, for faster access I suppose.

You can disable windows caching in uTorrent settings, but maybe updating is also a solution because I haven't seen this kind of behavior on my system in over a year.

I just disabled caching in uTorrent. I hope it will solve the problem.

You could also stop using utorrents remove the program from your system and see how things work out.

It was uTorrent's fault! Seeding takes up too much memory.

Guys, huge thanks for help. I'm marking this thread as solved.

How did you list all the processes Google Chrome uses

Tom
I also think that Chrome is the main culprit.

Only 1 tab opened:

This might be a clue.
A bit too much for uTorrent?
Hi Plainview,
What tool/program did you use to display the all the process that Chrome was using?
