Hi All
This is my first post on this site, so I am hoping that someone will be able to assist me with this. I posted the same question on another site as well, but of not much luck. Apparently they don't have the time to answer. I am hoping this is not the case in here.

The problem is that my computer is hogging all the ram. When I started the computer right now, the amount of memory free was only 80MB out of 760MB that i have. I'm on xp pro on a 1.73Mhz pentium processor. Don't have any start up programmes except the firewall and anti virus. Surely all the memory can't be consumed by these 2. Any ideas what's causing this?
I've scanned my system using different spyware/adware progs but found no malware on the system?
Any ideas as to if this is a virus issue or a hardware issue.
Thanks
D
P.S.: Just had a new hard disk and a motherboard installed.

Where are you getting this memory allocation figure from? What programs are open when you do it?

Sorry about the double post.... please delete the earlier one.
Hi Louis
Thanks for the quick reply.
I have tune-up installed, which gives me the figure. While calculating the memory, the only applications that were running were
1. Kaspersky
2. Zone Alarm
3. Msn Messenger (a file avp.exe consumes around 500k of mem)
4. Bleepingcomputer.com

Other than this i have also disabled the graphic features of win but yet, all mem just goes off.

FYI - while scanning from kasersky (rootkit scan) it gives an error sayin, SbRecovery.ini is password protected.

Well? Any ideas as to what's happening.
Thanks
D
P.S.: I've done the defrag and everything else

Try using Task Manager to see where your memory and CPU loads are (at any given point).

I am unfamiliar with the software you mentioned.
