I've tried to figure out what is causing my memory to be hogged. I've tried all sorts of diagonistics but of little help.
I am hoping that someone can have a look at my log and possibly advise what is wrong with the system and what is causing the memory to be eaten up and my system freezing. To mention that my browsing has gone real slow, would be an understatement.
Although the scan's don't reveal anything, I am sure that there is something hidden in the system which the scanners are not able to find out. While doing a rootkit scan on kaspersky anti virus, it does give a pop up of sbrecovery.ini is password protected, which I never got before and also, i'm unable to use spybot
Would apprecaite any help on this as I am on the verge of a nervous breakdown
