Using 1.55gb of memory while just browsing the web normal? - Page 7

post #61 of 65
Yes perfectly normal... My max is about 3.9 GB / ram leaving machine on for over 2 weeks never closing the browser with things like netflix and youtube and other random crap open and closed within a million tabs. Just wanted to see what would happen lol.

Here are the registry entries again. Check them, and ask any questions you have regardless of what you think of your question (no question is dumb in my opinion):

Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Wow6432Node\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Run
Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Run
Code:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Run




I explained the better ways at least 2-3 times. I feel like no one is listening to me today.

Msconfig is not for making permanent changes; it is a program for making temporary changes in order to diagnose problems. It is a diagnostic utility.

Between Services.msc, those registry entries as well as the programs themselves, I guarantee you that we can take care of this in the way that you want to without using msconfig.
I enabled the start up services through msconfig and rebooted. Then I went in and deleted the registry values from the locations you listed and rebooted again. All is good, but what I really want to know is WHY is this any better than using msconfig? Two reasons I see that are not better:

1.) Its took about 10 minutes longer to setup than just unchecking boxes in msconfig.

2.) If I wanted to add a program back to startup all I have to do is check off the box in msconfig again. Adding the program back to the system registry is not so easy.

I just opened Firefox 4.0, and I am seeing 1.09 GB used up now.
Cool what did you do? I've been trying to streamline mine as well

Task manager is telling me i have 1.55 memory being currently used.

Is that normal given that i only have my browser open; that normal?
Well if you're saying you're using 1.5 out of 8 GB then yeah perfectly normal

EDIT: just figured out hitting decline allows you to continue without the toolbar, woot!

Lol complaining about time..

You can use CCleaner as a real quick method of stopping programs at startup things like Windows Live, etc

Back on topic I use a minimum of 1.8 GB of RAM just for Firefox. That's forum posts, news, social networks, etc, all flash and javascript blocked except what's required to use the site. A total of 200 ish tabs atm I used to have more around 800 tabs. And that's all without videos or online radio. So I'd say the OP is fine lol.

This is a loaded question, so I'll try to stick to the basics without detailing what I disable, what I leave enabled, etc. etc. I'll try to explain how I arrived at my current configuration so that you can customize your system to your usage habits.

First, I have been utilizing Black Viper's Service Configurations page since the days of Windows XP (prior to the service packs). So of course, I used his current guide for Windows 7:

Retail: http://www.blackviper.com/2009/01/13...onfigurations/

SP1: http://www.blackviper.com/2010/12/17...configurations

What I do is I go through each service one by one like this:
  1. On his page, I click the service name to read more about it (for example, here's the first service)
  2. If he has something to say about it in his own words, then it's under the "Additional Information" heading. If there's something there to read, then I read it to make it easier to make my own decision about what setting I want to use for the service.
  3. If there's nothing under "Additional Information", then I'll depend on the Default Description as well as the Dependencies (however, I always review these anyway).
  4. I'll also review the Default Startup Type which can assist me in my decision at times

The result is that I either leave the setting alone, or I change it to either Manual or Disabled.

I repeat the above routine for each service until I go through all of them. I usually end up with about 15 less processes according to Task Manager (I go by the number on the bottom-left corner of the window).

Another thing I do is I review his Windows 7 Super Tweaks page. This can help me further streamline Windows 7 after installation.

I also Google anything left in the Processes tab in Task Manager that I want to know more about. The result is that I tend to find new things I can disable, many of which I learn that I can just disable in the associated program's GUI.

I also check these three Registry keys and I even Google anything I'm not sure about. The idea is to delete any entries in these keys that are useless (of which there can be many):

Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Wow6432Node\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Run
Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Run
Code:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Run
Of course, I also turn off any Windows Features I don't need:





When I'm all done, I make a "custom Registry tool" for my Services using this:

Retail: http://www.blackviper.com/Windows_7/.../customREG.htm

SP1: http://www.blackviper.com/Windows_7/customREG.htm




(just in case you're wondering, I never use msconfig)
