I recently bought a HP Mini 110-3110 (N455, 250GB HDD, 1GB RAM) which is running Windows 7 Starter. The computer was loaded with programs I did not need/want so after removing them I have managed to get the number of processes running down to 40 (which still seems a lot compared to the 28 on my desktop): it was running 83. However, the amount of RAM being used is still 50%+ (at the minute with only this open it is at 591MB or 58%).
I am regrettably not as computer savvy as I possibly should be so I am not sure what is going on, although I am pretty sure it should not be using that much memory when doing so little. CPU usage is fairly low but erratic: ~10-40%, mainly due to Google Chrome from what I see in Task Manger. I have attached a HijackThis log: although it did mention that the program could not access host files.
EDIT: I removed HJT log, no evidence of malware issue...problems seems to be resolved ~ Hamluis.
If anyone could give me a few pointers I would appreciate it.
P.S. I hope this is in the right forum section.
