Windows 8 unsual RAM usage - Page 2

post #11 of 15
That RAM usage doesn't seem very strange to me. When just browsing the web I usually sit at 2-3GB usage. You really don't need to bother with 3rd party antivirus protection with Windows 8 unless you're paranoid. The built-in AV does a pretty good job.

You did a upgrade or fresh install?

I don't know much about Win8 or upgrading but I rather do fresh installs to possibly avoid issues like this. Not saying that is what it is but it's always on the table as an previous issue with Win7 from upgrading.

Upgrading from 7 to 8 and having RAM problems. I had this issue when I upgraded my lappy to 8. What I discovered was that for some reason my system was running double processes, of everything. It was almost like 7 was still installed and running in the background of 8 and it was running the process as well as 8 running the process. I had to go through and disable all processes that were running redundantly. I also had double entries on all hardware, had to remove those. I then did a reinstall of 8 and once that was complete 8 ran perfectly and has been doing so since then.

Well, 'guess that it's not my case... I made a fresh install.
I see that some of you feel that my RAM usage is about okay, but how come Win 8 which supposed to be less-RAM-usage OS takes more than 7?

hmm yah I guess it does sound about normal, here's a screen shot of my memory usage with World of Warplanes open and in the background, and 5 or 6 browser windows open
so I guess it's ok. thumb.gif
memory usage win8

*ETA* WIN7 used much more RAM when I was running it.
