3. Unfortunately you did not show the color bar of Resource Monitor. That would have been more telling.
4. Restarting the PC is not a good idea. You loose the cache, so makes the system run slower at first.

I have never seen it eating that much power on my own system.

I would guess it is eating the cpu time as well.
You may want to look into its settings and see that it's not running scans when you are trying to use the system for other things.

Best to remove, make sure you're working properly after removal of MSE (disconnect from the internet or your home network after uninstalling, to be safe, if you're paranoid), and then reinstall to see if the problem returns.
thank you all for your kind reply. as for the MS security essential concerned, this issue/problem (mem using still stay at top, when all apps closed) is came before using MSE,
now what you will say about that.

from your printscreen, that's quite a high kernel paged memory isn't it? 600mb
Honestly, I have no idea if it's high or not.

I would not be looking for absolute numbers. The RAM usage changes depending on how much RAM is available. For a 2GB system the numbers will be different than for a 8GB system.

However, the OP is obviously starving from RAM because he has a lot of hard page faults (see his Resource Monitor snip). The only cure for that is either a different operating behaviour (including a weed out of the startups and switching to a different AV program) or more RAM.

The real question you should be asking is not how much RAM am I using but is the performance good enough for my needs? If the answer is no then you need to do something about it. I'm sure most of these will have already been mentioned.

1. Reduce the number of startup programs.
2. Reduce the number of applications running.
3. Reduce the number of Browser tabs.
4. Reduce the number of Browser plug-ins or extensions.
5. Try Readyboost on a flash drive.


If all else fails get more RAM.

I guess if you have tried everything else then I guess you need to "bight the bullet" and buy more RAM.I've been through it myself. Don't forget if you have a 32bit version there is no point in having more than 4Gb.

Good luck with your upgrade.

yeah bro,, I know,, 4gb is maximum single ram capacity in 32bits.. and a 4gb is also nice amount of ram,,
