~facepalm~ That was stupid. Why didn't I think of that. :P A tad too much to drink, I would say. Ah well, I will report back if this works after I restart. Thank you for that advice.

I hope I never need that particular service. It really pigs up my install.

Okay, I have it disabled, restarted.. and it's at 39%, running more programs.. I opened up a game, and ran the same programs as before. It's not going over 55%... wow. Thank you sooo much for that advice about WPMnetwork thing. I closed the programs, and it's down to 37%, as it should. Ah, perfect. Problem solved! Now on to my two next problems...

It's mainly used for sharing media with Xbox 360s from what I've read about it.

And glad it worked for you

wmpnetwk.exe is for streaming you media files to other computers on your network. For example, I have my main computer in my computer room and I stream my music and videos to my media center. If you don't share your media library with other computers then you don't need this running.

Hey guys.

I'm having similar issues with my ram. I honestly dont think it was this way before my mate re-installed Windows 7.(Was running exact same Win 7 before)

Could you guys please shed some light on this. Attached are pics of my processes and performance in Task Manager.

(I installed the Process Explorer mentioned earlier in this thread, but its way to confusing for me. I'm still in the very early stages of learning about PC's)
