Windows 7: Physical memory usage jumping to the skies when installing games

Physical memory usage jumping to the skies when installing games

My memory usage jumps to almost full when I run a game installation. It wont go back to normal when the installation is finished. I don't find any processes that could use all this memory. Its like coming out of nowhere.
This doesn't happen when I install programs. And its only fixed when I restart the laptop.
I update my OS regularly.

No feedback. Does this mean you have no idea what's wrong or?

That is my system specs. It will be their on every one of my post for anybody to see.

Now tick on My System Specs in one of your post.

Their is a reason for all this madness.
When ever a member wants to help you, your System Specs are there for them to see without looking through a bunch of post looking for them. That is why I post the Tutorials in my post #3.

Doing this will give LMiller7 and others a lot more to work with.

amdor we understand that you are new to the forum and some of these things might feel strange. I'm just trying to get you off on the right foot so others might be able to help.

What games are you downloading and from where?
Do you use a Torrent to download?
