The free memory on my computer is quite low as it is but it seems to be dropping ridiculously fast and without me downloading any large files.

My computer doesn't seem to have any viruses and it's not running particularly slow, but the memory has dropped about 2GB in under a month and there's no way I've downloaded that much content. The biggest file I downloaded recently was 500MB (Breaking Bad) but I deleted it as soon as I was finished watching it, other than that I've only downloaded a few songs.

Is it normal for this to happen? Is there any chance that updates are that big? It doesn't seem right to me at all.

P.S. I went to System, then clicked the System Restore tab and my Disk space usage is at max. I am guessing that's bad?

Well, your post is a bit confusing.

First you refer to "free memory", then you mention "Disk space usage". The two aren't the same.

As far as disk space, it is easy to eat up lots of gigs of space in a month. You have to figure temp internet files eat up space, and simply deleting a file doesn't mean it is gone. Delete your temp internet files, manually delete the recycle bin contents and see how much space it frees up.
