Hi. I'm currently running Windows 7 (not that I think it makes much of a difference with the task manager). I was wondering-the task manager shows what amount of memory a process is using-but what is it measuring in? What exactly is a "K"?

Yes and you are welcome

1megabyte = 1024KB in computer hardware

1Megabyte = 1000kb for Hard Drive Measurements.

So a file taking up 1000K of RAM is using less than 1Meg of RAM.
