Must be a lot of browsers and tabs open, but I still wouldn't think that that would use that much RAM. 80 to 90% of 8 GB seems very excessive. I have 8 GB and I can't get higher than about 40% with Visual Studio, and a number of other programs running, including browser pages and tabs. There has to be another issue here that we can't see. Please post the Resource Monitor picture that whs asked for so we can help.

Will do when she is away from the PC. (IMO its too many browsers the main hassle. I tried it on mine. They eat up ram.)

A little discipline would be cheaper than more RAM. 8GBs should really be enough for that kind of applications.
