Windows 7: Abnormal memory usage in win 7 64 bit!!

Abnormal memory usage in win 7 64 bit!!

Hi friends im using win 7 64 bit (oem) for the past few months, i never had this problem, but this problem annoys me. Im havin 4gb of ram. Whenever the system reboots the ram usage is normal but after that it is gradually incresaing and within an hour or so it reaches 3 to 3.5 gb of ram utilization leaving me with only 500 mb of ram to use!!. I used windows resource monitor to find the culprit process but unfortunately the resource monitor shows all the process but nothing mentioned with ram usage of more than a gb. I still cant get where the memory is leaking?

Anyone having the same problem or can come up with a solution??

sounds like normal superfetch caching. As soon as a program requests more RAM, it will be freed up.

But it never free up the memory, as the time goes up the more the ram getting occupied. mine is a 24 x 7 system. It forces me to restart me every 1 or 2 hours. Restart is the only thing that releases the memory

Its normal for me to have those 88 process sometimes around 90, but the usage never exceeded at 2gb at any point.

Memory usage after a fresh reboot!!

By ssb_swe

This is my default memory usage, but as the time passes the mem usage grows and typically ends with 3.5gb of ram usage within an hour.........
