Hello,

 

My RAM level has been running between 65 and 71% for the past month.  My computer seems to be bogging down at the higher levels.  I am not extremley tech saavy but can get around pretty well.  I have looked at my processes and don't see anything out of the ordinary.  I have tried pretty much everything I know of and was wondering if anyone could give me advice. 

 

I am using Windows 7.  I have a HP p6213w and  I have 6GB of RAM.  My processor is Pentium Dual-Core CPU E5300 @2.6GHz.

 

If anyone has any ideas I would be grateful.

Thanks,
Dustin

Hi, akduskin.

Open Task Manager and under Processes tab (at the bottom left),  tick Show processes from all users. Click on Memory column and post a screenshot of what is diplayed.

Thanks,

Wankanobe

Hi,

 

Go to Run and type msconfig.

 

Under the Startup tab, it will show all the applications that start along with the WIndows. Uncheck the applications that are not required and restart your system.

 

Also give a complete Virus Scan. Sometimes, virus also hog up your memory.

 

Chris

Hi Wankonobe,

 

I have attached a PDF of the task manager processes as you requested.  Thank you and let me know what else you would like me to do.  I appreciate your help greatly!

Hi Chris,

 

Thank you.  I have done that previously and had someone from Bleeping Computer help me a couple of months back with a complete virus removal protocal.  I have been running the systems they showed me since and have not gotten another virus.

Dustin

I actually posted a response to this but it has gone missing....

The image posted is worth a thousand words.

Gotta go but my response was basically Autoruns and MS services....

I'll be back.

Hi Bludgard,

 

Thanks for the comment but I guess I really don't understand enough to understand.  When you say Autoruns and MS services I am assuming I need to work to try and shut some of these things down.  What is the logical method to go about doing this without disrupting my workflow as much as possible?  Thank you and I look forward to any more advice you can give me.  I appreciate it very much!

 

Thanks,
Dustin

RAM level will vary based on what you are using.

The system itself would not bog down unless you are running too many applications that using Cached memory.

Applications like Outlook.exe are best ran with no other software for those reasons.
