I have recently noticed a process named System in the process list taking ove 64000K of RAM. It is not the idle process. Does anyone know what this is, and can you help get it off the computer?

Thank you

You should have a process named System in the process list but that seems like a lot of ram for it to be using. Someone else should come along that might know more about the reason fo it taking so much ram but I just wanted to reply to let you know that having that listed in the process list is normal.

When you say it is taking that much ram, what column is that number listed in?

Yes, that does seem like an awful lot, mine is currently sitting at only 128K. I do not have anything in mine that is using even close to that amount. Is it always that high, even right after rebooting the system?
