My specs are:
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3GHz
4 GB DDR2 RAM
Western Digital WD15EADS 1.5TB
I dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.04. I used to have Windows XP instead of 7. When I first boot to 7 and go to task manager, it says ~2500MB of RAM is free. This seems okay, but then the number decreases until it hovers around 200MB or lower, making playing games impossible (the sole purpose I use windows for). I have run Anti-malwarebytes and ComboFix, both removed some malware.
I know that windows 7 is a resource hog but I would expect it to use ~1000MB at idle. This is roughly what my ubuntu uses and what XP used to use. I have limited my startup programs and disabled many unnecessary services. In XP I managed to run about 16 processes, in Windows 7 I am lucky to have less than 40. I have even disabled aero to save RAM, but all these precautions seem to be in vain.
Although I consider it an unnecessary privacy breach I have attached my combofix log out of desparation.
If anyone could help me I would be very greatful.
