How much RAM do you have installed?

RAM is supposed to be used. If you have 4 or more GB of RAM, I wouldn't worry if I had under 2 GB used after a startup.

If you are concerned, you can look at the memory column of the processes tab in Task Manager. That will show which processes are using RAM.

Or look at the memory tab of Resource Monitor.

*What* is consuming it? Windows will cache all kinds of things (Superfetch) depending on your usage patterns, so you need to make sure you're looking at the memory tab in resmon to determine what is actually *used*, and what is just cache. If it really is usage, resmon can help determine that as well.

Have you looked at the Startup Tab in msconfig. Please open this Tab and uncheck a whole lot of useless programs that you may be running at Startup. To reach the Tab please click Windows+R and in the Run Dialog Box type "msconfig" without the inverted commas and press OK.

One consumes too much RAM if many programs are running at the same time. How many programs are you running simultaneously? If too many then close some of them that are not in use.

There are third party programs available that deactivate Services required by certain programs when those programs are closed. You can try some of them to reduce the usage of RAM.

Do Memory Cleaners improve the memory usage and performance?
I am currently using MemClean and it not only decreases my memory use but it also seems to improve the general performance of Windows and apps. Is this really the case or is it just my impression?
chkdsk high memory usage / memory leak
Has anyone else noticed that chkdsk uses all available physical memory (if you let it run long enough)? I find that if I run chkdsk and watch the memory usage in task manager it jumps by about 50MB every 2 seconds or so until it either finishes or hits around 3.2GB at which point my physical...
