My first time posting, you said to ask any question? I'm a self taught PC user. Would someone please explain what the different areas of Task Manager are and where numbers should be? CPU, Memory, Disk, etc. What's the difference between Physical and Kernel Memory? I can make sense of the what the numbers mean on physical memory, but at what ratio are the numbers critical? Thanks for the time and attention.

:thumbsup: to BC! csf1
Physical Memory is the actual RAM you have and the Kernel Memory is your pagefile (which is a big file on your hard drive that your computer uses as "virtual memory" when your actualy RAM gets too busy.)
