Okay.
We just wanted you to be alert to the possible problems.

Mike

When you get that new RAM installed come show us what you have in the Resource Monitor.

Take care.

If you feel the utility is serving a purpose don't remove it. However If you find evidence that it's not serving a purpose, remove it.

With regards to tune-up utlilties and tweaks, there are a lot of back and forth opinions on which work and which don't. It's up to you on which ones to choose and use, or not use. Just do your research.

I personally don't use tweaks/tune-ups, but that's me.

That is what I was thinking stormy13. Trying to repair this computer with programs like that running would be futile. IMHO Windows 7 doesn't need, like, or want such programs.

It isn't broken so why would anyone want to fix it?
Strange.

Wonder how many of the OP's "problems" would go away if that snake-oil was removed.
I think you and stormy agree

The reason many still want to use such programs and tweak a lot is because that is the way with older operating systems things were done by many. When the OP does a little more reading on this site and others sites like this one they will be convinced that Windows 7 doesn't do things the old way. There for doesn't need or like these kinds of things. It's a learning curve.
To me those programs are snake oil and I have no problem calling them that if it helps some one here.

It didn't help it was just crass.

By the way, I may have missed it somewhere, but it seems that no one has told you that "standby" basically means free RAM. The ram is not being actively used, but it is waiting patiently for when it is needed immediately.
