Windows 7: Physical Memory/CPU Usage showing high

Physical Memory/CPU Usage showing high

I am using Windows 7, with 4GB ram. My physical memory usage goes high upto 3.5Gig even when i use very less applications.

I have monitored using both Performance Monitor (Perfmon.exe) and Process Explorer.
All applications shows the same including my Task Manager/Wdws Gadgets.

My system is normal, but curious to know the reason.

Attached is for reference

Thanks in advance

You are doing anything but running less applications. I can see a dozen different applications that can the cause or contributing factor. Java for instance, does it need to be running? All that stuff under "Toaster.exe" do they need to be running?

You're also running two instances of Google Chrome. That's going to eat up available memory.

I just wanted to add for more clearance

There are no processes running, still i get more CPU usage and more Physical memory usage.

It is hard to work with your screenshots. For Process Monitor, it would be useful to see the colored bar under Memory tab - like this:



For Process Explorer, you need to show all the CPU intensive processes on top by double clicking on "CPU". Like this:

Just to reiterate....you have 85 processes running. To put things into perspective, I have 43 running. You have way too much junk running in the background. I think it might be best to do some house cleaning.

I know it's nice to have certain things running in the background and or running in the tray, but it's such a horrible habit to get into. Nothing needs to be running in the background. At most your anti-virus software and any of the required Windows services. Anything else is simply bloating the operating system. If you're unsure of what a specific task is in the taskmanager I'm sure we can help you out so you can bring that 85 down to a much lower more manageable number.

Right off the bat here's a list of things that don't need to be running:

ONENOTEM.EXE
realsched.exe
jusched.exe
sprtcmd.exe
quickset.exe
PDVDDXSrv.exe
uTorrent.exe
Toaster.exe

That's 8 processes that are eating away at your RAM and CPU usage. Obviously if you're downloading something in uTorrent it needs to be running. But if you're not downloading anything, close it. Nothing listed above is crucial for the system to run and all of it is easily reloaded when another piece of software might need it.

Agreed, 85 is way too much junk. You should have under 50 processes, give or take 5. Poor 7.

Windows 7 random CPU usage and high physical memory usage!!!
Ok, I am literally KILLING myself over this! I installed Windows 7 64Bit over XP around a month ago and it was so good that I recommended it to my brother who was previously on XP too. We got him a copy of the 32bit version as he has only 2gb of memory, and he installed it on his machine....
