Hi!

I have a VAIO AR670 running Vista Home edition on a T7800 Duo 2.6Ghz CPU, 4GB RAM, nVidia 8600M GT overclocked, ESET as main security, Defender as secondary, and various anti-spyware tools.

In December I did a System Recovery because after "accidentally" Denying permissions for ALL users (including CPU) of my unpartitioned HD neither I or the CPU could run any programs from my hard disk.

After hours of consultations with Sony Services and Microsoft, and being told that the only solution is to do a system restore from DVD (internal restore was blocked by permission denial) I finally managed to restore all permissions to myself and all users! Thus uncovering a MAJOR security flaw in VISTA which allows an unauthorized user to give himself and others ADMIN rights.....surprise....

Anyway...just to be on the safe side I did a system backup and then a system restore from my DVD's and ever since then my RAM usage has been unusually high. Prior to restoring my average RAM usage was about 37% max, and around 25% when idle. Now it's around 63% max and 35% idle. I have the same software, programs etc installed as I did before.

I can't figure this out...

Another thing that happens is that during system ShutDown I get memory error codes and although the screen goes blank the computer doesn't fully shut down.

Please advise!

Here's my log:
