First, what a few of those files are:

oodag.exe-An application that will run defrag when the computer is idle.

Dkservice.exe-Controls the Diskeeper Service. Diskeeper is hard-drive defragmenting software.


It would seem to me, that these files are related. If you have installed Diskeeper, and you like the service that it provides, then I would leave these two files alone. If you do not recognize the program, then remove it (START->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs). In some cases, you may have to remove them in Safe Mode, which I would recommend that you remove them in Safe Mode anyway.

On the other files, I would not try to alter or end them. These are needed applications to keep XP running. If you are concerned about the amount of RAM that it is using, then you can d/l a RAM program.

Some people like them, and other believe that they are a waste of time and space. The one that I have been using for years is Rambooster. It runs as an application minimized in the taskbar. When you see that you are running low on memory, you can open it, and click 'optimize'. The only thing that it is really doing is just erasing data from RAM based on frequency of usage. One of the main benefits that I see using this, is that you can optimize it, while running other programs, and it will not slow the computer down, compared to haveing the OS do it.

BTW-how much RAM do you have anyway?

Oh I know what oando defrag is and diskepper I bought them lol. it is just usually the programs only use very little ram and after I did some weekly checkups all of a sudden my page file is up to 600 megs of usage I have 512 megs of ram. its not that. I have some low latecny ram with the timings tight. But I cant figure out what is not letting go of ram even after leaving the pc off for a half hour. Here is another screenshot of the page usage, Im all clean so a virus or adaware is out! Usually I am running around 130 to 150 page file usage, and have 360 megs of ram after boot up
