When i install a game my memory uses goes sky high without i even see wich proces is doing this in the task manager, the numers just don't add up, my computer is also very slow at that moment. The memory usage is 3.8 gb/3.9gb of 4gb. where does this come from, a memory leak ?

So what does this mean? Adding RAM used to improve performance, not any more as Microsoft will use it to cache applications you may or may not ever use! Great use of RAM for heavy foreground app usage!

Windows 7 has about a 2-3 hour usage time before I restart and boot back into XP.
