That looks OK to me. Windows 7 will use as much as it needs and manages the memory so that frequently used programs remain in memory unless it is needed for something else. It really is not worth disabling services you will end up doing more harm than good.

I don't know that game but as I said just let Windows manage the memory for you. Mine is sitting at 2.6 GB out of 4 and at the moment I am just browsing with Chrome.

Unused memory is wasted memory.

Using memory does not make a computer slower, it makes it faster. 60% is not even close to 100%

Agreed with all of the above...and trying to free up more RAM won't do anything to prevent your laptop from overheating. That's all down to CPU and GPU usage (and to a lesser extent, components such as the HD).

CPU Usage and Physical Memory ~90%
I clearly don't have a good PC, but I also think W7 doesn't need over 2 Cores 2.66 GHz and 2 ram. My problem is that my CPU usage and and Physical Memory usage is staying around 90% each with Chrome and nothing opened. There are two screenshots of processes opened and cpu and memory usage at a...

Windows 7 random CPU usage and high physical memory usage!!!
