Windows 7: Ram usage up to 80%+ in about an hour

Ram usage up to 80%+ in about an hour

My girlfriend got me this new laptop for Christmas.

Samsung with Win7 64
Intel i3 2.53GHz
8GB of RAM

It's really nice, but one night I realized it was running slow. I opened Task Manager and found that 6.5GB of my 8GB of ram was being used. I closed all my programs, nothing changed. So I restarted it. It stayed down at about 17% but after a while it started climbing again. I've been all over the internet looking for a fix to this but nothing so far has worked. I disabled Super Fetch and Windows search and I know it's not the Firefox leak because I use Google Chrome. Any fixes? Could it just be the RAM? I didn't have this problem with my desktop at all.

Have a look at this thread, and follow the advice for creating a Perfmon log from our own Cluberti. See if you can post the log here, and we'll see if he can give it a look.

So I went to a friends house with it yesterday and stayed all day, nothing happened. Left it there over night, nothing happened. So I came home thinking "Cool it fixed itself." Well I plugged in this Tascam US800 mixer that I have and my RAM usage started climbing again. Turns out there's a bug in the new update for it. Thanks for the help!
