Your performance is bad because of AVG. Completely uninstall the worst app on the net.

Something is not right. 900 MB with nothing running is not normal. Compare to my 950 MB and see all the stuff that is running (picture). And also the slow boot is not normal. It does not even look like a virus that is chipping away in the background because your CPU usage is 0%. I can only suspect that something went wrong with the installation.

There's nothing wrong with his install besides AVG being on it.

Although I agree that AVG is a bummer, but it should not have such a dramatic effect. I suggest to the OP to use MSE instead. It works like a charm and has a very small footprint.

Torrentg, is one of our best, I was even able to learn from him in the past. I really don't think that he is kidding about the problems associated with AVG. I would take his advice in conjuction with the poster that mentiond MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) and see how it goes

No further suggestions as your system is now well. Do not look at used RAM as any indicator of performance. It's an incorrect way to do things.

Win 7 makes use of your RAM. You didn't buy it and have it in your machine to sit there and do nothing.
