Windows 7: Slow computer and RAM issue

Im going to go ahead and point out the obvious. You do realize RAM adds up right? Windows requires 2GBs for its stuff alone. Background processes all add up too, and those are base specs. For instance, Chrome requires 512MBs of ram, but that doesn't mean it can't exceed that. If you open a bunch of tabs, it just keeps going. You need 512 to open a basic page in a single tab. (Mines at 7GBs right now on usage). Extensions add into that. But let's take the basics here:
64 bit windows 2GBs minimum requirement
Kaspersky's 64 bit 2GBs miniumum
Now we've depleted it already, and we haven't added the game yet. Not counting any background processes you may be running like dropbox, google drive, iCloud, spotify, etc. Or if you have any tabs open at all in Chrome. Honestly, I have no idea how this runs at all.

I apologize if this comes off as harsh. Just pointing out the obvious. The system won't always use that much, nor will the game, or chrome. But for standard use, that's what you need, so you already have to be slimming it down to browse a webpage, or play even a flash game.

EDIT: Case and point. Chrome requires 512MB of RAM to run -

That's 6.7GBs, or 6752.18MB...Quite a bit higher than 512MB

Oh ok that makes sense. I honestly think its because i have Kaspersky and Fix-it utilities constantly running. Il see what i can do and if the issue is resolved, i will mark it "Solved".

If the issue is not solved, i will reply back.

Thanks!
