I know - I shouldn't have run combofix because I'm not a Professional. I've heard it can cause problems and now I am seeing first hand.

I have a Dell PC running Vista SP1.

I tried to do a system restore but it didn't correct the problem with the Physical Memory usage. Hardly anything is running and it is steady at 70-80%.

Is there anything I can do besides back up data and and do a clean install of the OS?

Sorry if this isn't in the right forum.

I would really appreciate any input on this, thank you in advance,

Adam
