Windows 7: Windows 7 uses 1gb RAM idle

[SOLVED] Windows 7 uses 1gb RAM idle

Hi!

Two days ago it used only about 600 MB of Ram when idle.
Yesterday it suddenly started using 1 GB idle and it froze a few times.
Why the sudden change? Can you help me decrease the usage?

PS If it helps, the problem started after installing G Data AV (before I used Nod32) and now I installed nod again and the usage is still the same.

I enclosed a picture from Resource Monitor in the attachments.
Explorer.exe is using 70mb. Is that normal?

Check for Memory leaks, use Task Manager and see if over the coarse of the day does anything creep up (Memory Usage).

NOD 32 is famous for eating Ram, it's been a problem for quite a while now.

Try restoring to a time before you installed that AV, and see does it help.
it might be the simplest thing to do.
