Windows 7: How do I kill standby memory?

Glad to hear you found the source of the problem.

On the issue of HardDrive thrashing, I did have 1 other thought.
Indexing will do that for awhile untill everything is indexed.

But, was just wondering if that may have been the cause? Just a thought.

@Wishmaster if your looking up websites / porn / youtube / shopping i agree. putting in memory to make these run faster is a good thing. but cached memory isnt free, it cached. Video games "REQUIRE" free memory to run properly, not cached. it means your computer is trying to cache and run a memory hog video game at the same time with minimal free memory. meaning your game lag like crazy ruining the experiance. i want my computer to run my game as best it can, not have website pre cached, understand?

imagine going to the store and all you want are ten items, as you walk down the ilse for your ten items your basket randomly files with random stuff and at some point theres nomore room for your ten items. its supposed to leave you space for stuff but it doesnt.


some of us dont want 100% of our memory mapping youtube videos, i want the purpose of my computer to be a server or play games with as much ram as it can use.


purpose of RAM (random assesed memory) is to be random memory, not mapping youtube videos so they run faster. standby memory is used memory, for some people thats a good thing, for me its a waste. it cant be good for your computer system to be mapping then dropping stuff in a constant battle over what memory is used for. every time my system hangs up, lags, or studders this has to be bad for my computer system.
