Possible Memory Leak

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
During the installation of several different games I get an increase in memory usage. The longer the installation, the more memory that is used. Which is pretty typical. However, after the installation is complete my memory usage does not decrease. It stays at around 6 GB, until I restart my system. I am baffled as to what could be causing this, and how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated!!!

Sorry to bring back a dead horse, but yes I was using PowerISO. I got rid of my old system, but I'll look to see if PowerISO is what's causing this problem. That's odd though. I wonder why it would be PowerISO?
