Processes taking more ram then they should?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm not really sure, but having 4gb ddr3 compared to my laptop's 4gb ddr2 with the same exact processes open, for some reason my Phys memory usage is at 35% for my desktop and 25% for my laptop. Here are some screens of the processes open for the desktop. As you can see my usage is at 62%, does this look right? It just doesn't look like it adds up. Does this have to do with a page file or something?

Somehow Firefox seems to be using the most RAM. What were you doing in the browser at that stage?

Just watching a youtube video, but as you can see that's only 390,000 k so that's just 390mb right? That being my biggest process open I would think I'd have more than only 1.5gb to spare.

That is rather high for 4GB RAM. Have you tried running a Malware scan? Just to eliminate that.

Yep, I always do malware/AV scans every other day :/. Not sure if it's bad ram, or maybe a windows 7 file I could alter to get more out of my ram.

What's the size on your pagefile? Did you set it manually or system managed?

It's system managed, and just says 4093mb so I guess it's using all of my ram as a page file?
