Seems like your AV program my be the blame or you are loading to many programs at start-up. Over time they buildup as you add software. Run "ccleaner" to clean tings up and remove any start up entrys you don't need.

If you want to cut down on caching you can set Superfetch to only cache boot files.

In this article they get you most of the way there. The mistake many of these make is they neglect to tell you that "EnablePrefetcher" and "EnableSuperfetch" should always be set to the same number. I have mine both set to 2 to only cache boot files, on both Vista and W7.

It works the same way in both. Just remember when you follow the article to set them both the same. To get back to system default, just set them both to 3.

edit: the usual provisos apply. Before messing with your registry you should back it up by making a Restore Point, a backup image of your system partition, or using a utility like ERUNT.

Being annoyed in your situation is like being annoyed because the gas gauge in your car is down from full to 3/4 of a tank.

So what?

The gas tank's full capacity is meant to be used. Likewise, all of your memory is meant to be used. Otherwise, why even own it?

Why complain because 29% is in use---you've got 71% of the tank remaining.

high memory and cpu usage
After I boot up my Envy 17, and do nothing but let it sit for a few minutes, the memory usage goes up to 50-55%, and CPU usage climbs to 25-35%, for no apparent reason. The fan starts blowing like crazy, and the system slows. I look under task manager processes, there are like 80 of them going. No...

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....
