Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

50% memory usage on a 64 bit OS and 4 GB RAM is quite normal. Memory usage in any modern OS is highly dynamic. The current usage may seem high but that is only there is currently no better use for it. When other applications are started the usage of current processes will be trimmed back, drastically if necessary.

Adding up the items in the memory usage column rarely provides meaningful information and only leads to confusion.
