Memory problem. Please help.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I hope this is in the correct forum.

My problem is that every couple of minutes my computer bogs down. I opened up task manager and see that evry couple of minutes my ram usage goes up to 96-98% usage.

I have 8 gigs and something is eating it up. I rebooted and just left nothing but the basics running and it still happens. I have no idea what to check to see what is causing it.

I ran Microsoft Security Essentials, Malwarebytes and Super Antispyware thinking I have been hacked but they all come back clean.

The only thing I can see running in the backgound is MSE, Nvidia settings and printer (for wireless network).

My processes shows 108 with Internet Explorer (please do not rag me) having 80k as the biggest resource.

So is there a way to pinpoint exactly what is causing this?

Dude i'm guessing it's a virus.
i know you said you ran virus scan and anti-malware but sometimes the complex trojans and such wan't get detected by these.

Try clearing (delete the files) your system restore. DO NOT USE SYSTEM RESTORE. Most viruses nowadays attack system restore first so that when you restore...you make it worse. Be sure to disconnect from the internet when deleteing files and running scans. As the virus will just reconnect through the same port once it gets deleted (aka: you did nothing).

What is the proper procedure to delete/clear the system restore? And do I delete everything in system restore?

Thanks

having 108 processes is a lot to have. Also go to start and in the search field type "msconfig" press enter. go to "startup" and hit disable all and apply then reboot. then, do it again, and enable only a couple things that you need. reboot. then putz around on the computer to see if a memory hole opens up again. If it does... do taskmanager and see what thing has acquired a ton of memory to its name.

ps. hazzzee we need to go out for a drink man. haha

Usually it's with your system data and such.
You may have to do some prodding around.
Whenever i do backups i put them in a different partition so they aren't linked directly to my system files...so i wouldn't know where they would be without poking around.
