I would also like to know the answer to this question.
I have a similar problem. I downloaded something, but noticed my computer started to slow down. So I entered Safe Mode and deleted all the files I downloaded. Things ran fine, but I could still tell something wasn't right. Then I noticed that my memory was being all used up? I think I also contracted a virus. I ran Spybot, and Windows Defender, Defragmented, and am currently doing a disk check. I dunno, just the basic stuff. I'm not much of a computer guy, but yeah.
Also I noticed that when I start up my computer, a small, black, blank MSDOS type window pops up? Nothing's in it, and then it just goes away. I'm certain I don't use alot of memory, because my laptop is fairly new, not much programs on it, except a couple of games and such.
But really, the amount that is being used up is ridiculous! Help please to get my memory back!
