Hi and welcome to seven forums. Your ram usage is fine. win 7 grab as much as it can normally to use unless its needed elsewhere, plus you are only starting with 2 gigs so having a free gig is actually good. btw we cant see the task manager shot as it is too small

Vista came out of the gate horribly, no doubt about that. It got a bad rap on day 1 and for a majority of people (many of which who have never actually used it), it continues to have a bad rap.

For those of us using it (I just got it full time in Jan of this year...as I was an XP holdout..but got a new job in a worldwide corporation, and Vista on the laptop was the standard), I have to say that my experience within Vista has been absolutely fine. My biggest complaint....it doesn't have a telnet client loaded by default thus I cannot easily connect to an unmanaged Cisco switch or router.

Tell you what, let me put your theories to the test. I just built 2 identical test boxes at work. They consist of the following hardware
  • Asus P5QL Pro mobo
  • Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 at 3.00Ghz
  • 4GB Corsair DDR2-800 RAM
  • 500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue hard drive
  • Samsung 22X DVD Burner
  • EVGA Nvidia 8600GT 256MB video cards
  • Intel 10/100/1000 NIC's

I'll willing to install Windows XP SP2 on 1 of them, and the Windows 7 RC1 release on the other one. Give me specifics of exactly what you would like me to test with easily obtainable software and a stopwatch as my quantitative measure which can be performed within about 1-2 hours and I will test it out for you today and post my results.

This is nothing to worry about. It's a change that Microsoft implemented to more closely follow other modern day operating systems and make the best use of RAM possible. The system is simply caching things into empty and available RAM to speed up the computer. If anything comes along which needs that RAM, Windows will simply overwrite what it has cached....thus making all of the RAM you need available.

there's nothing wrong with your ram usage. i don't understand why people think they need to "free up" ram. all those programs do more harm than good IMO
if i cant run any program with this ram usage its important for me that "free up" ram.

What applications and games are you trying to run and what errors or problems are you having when they try to start?

It appears to me that you are saying
1). once my RAM is full, I cannot start other apps

However, my experience has been
1). My box (with 8GB of RAM), might have 40MB free RAM
2). I start Crysis, it chews up 1.5GB of RAM...which Windows immediately freed up when Crysis came along and said it needed it.

Just like pparks1 says, Windows will automatically free ram when its needed.

These are from Vista (same happens in 7) with only 2 GB of ram,

Before



After,



You can see the differences in the other processes after BF2 is started (which will use over 1.5 GB if there is more than 2 GB of ram installed), with Windows even freeing up ram being used by other things. So yes you will be fine running Crysis.
