On the surface, I see nothing that I would construe to be a problem...but something is wrong if 8GB of RAM can result in memory warnings.
That would make me look at a particular app/process running when the warnings occur.
Of the programs that I see listed...uTorrent, RAIDCall, and HTTrack Website Copier would be my first group of suspects.
Could also be infected...system seems to have a lot of problems with routine services/functions. Your Kaspersky install seems to have problems.
Temps for hardware are good, no indications of hard drive problems.
If it were mine, I'd try to remove the idea of malware first, via a visit to the Am I Infected forum.

No way that am infected because am not like most of ppl who download from "warez" etc, i also scan every month full computer with kaspersky and malwarebytes with engine up to date. I also use Adblock+NoScript for FF. Tommorow i will delete RaidCall and HTTrack Website Copier and also turn off all services and restart computer and see do i still have this problem. Today i also did defragment, clean registry and temp with CCleaner and did disk check. I also did memtest on all 4 memory sticks for 10 hours and it didnt found nothing. From tommorow i will memtest 2 sticks and after tommorow another 2 sticks, so maybe metest find something, but i think its memory leak somewhere or some problem with windows caching.

<<Today i also did defragment, clean registry and temp with CCleaner and did disk check.>>
There's no need for "cleaning the registry" which originatlly originated with Win 9x back in the days when less what understood and known about Windows and solving/eliminating Windows problems that really should have just been attributed to the fact that it was in the developmental stage inferior to today's products, IMO.

Why not delete all 3 that hamluis mentioned, rather than pull hardware. Seems easier to me?

Here is A temp FIX for the Ram Cashe. Its a Clearer script, and should only be used once a week. I am having the same issue. Usuall I have anywher between 90-95% of all memory sold up, and it goes is super fast sparks.
I am working on a fix, but still need time. Dont know if you have read up on it but Microsoft any time the sytem goes ideal uses that time to run all types of stuff you can try this to see if it helps,
Mod Edit: Removed unnecessary/useless link - Hamluis.
: 8/19/2009 2:57 PM What advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks actually does is to carry out a similar task to that of a defragmentation program, except it does it in a specific way.
When you first install your OS (XP onward only - this was a feature introduced with the XP platform), the prefetch folder found in %windir%/prefetch is unpopulated. When you have installed all of your additional programs, a file pertaining to that program will be placed in the prefetch folder and will have the extension .PF (you can check this).
This will mean that the OS upon booting will know these programs are to be loaded as a priority. The best way of achieving system optimisation is after finalising your installation, reboot your computer 3 times to correctly populate the prefetch folder with all of your regularly ran startup programs.
Without doing this will mean that immediately after a new install your OS will not run at optimimum speed until the prefetch is completed, even then after 3 reboots it'll only be 90% optimised. If at this point you run the command rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks the referenced programs are moved to the outer edge of the Hard Drive meaning the OS can access them quicker and will complete the remaining 10% of your system optimisation.
Without running this command you would have to leave your system turned on and IDLE for 3 days to have the same effect.
I dont know but its worth a try
In the mean time try this. If you havnt already
1. Click right click & Go to New the Click on ShortCut.
2. In location paste this code %windir%\system32\rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks
3. Start in %windir%, takes about 15 mins to work but it will. Has so far, or maybe I was hoping for something that never was This process forces all the idle tasks, that is why the memory is ate up so much. The less you do the more Windows takes the opportunity to do stuff in the background
Log on one time, Run task manager and Resource monitor. Sit and do nothing and watch Windows grab everything it can. Then launch like 5 process (internet, video etc) and watch is dive and recover.
I have found everything from fan speeds, to idle processes etc. I think it boils down to does this cause your system to crash, or are you just concerned about it.
Like I said Ill keep looking.

I tried that thing with shortcut but no help.... i also uninstalled 3 programs, turned off all startup programs but same problem. I have no idea what to do. Is there some way to reduce caching? When i play game it takes 2gb from free to cache and when i turn off game it returns like 500mb maybe less. Why is caching games when i turned game off? There must be some way to reset memory caching to default.
Posted 05 November 2013 - 10:56 AM
Well...what does Task Manager reflect as the processes consuming all this vanishing memory?
As I said, 8GB is a lot of RAM to be using even close to the maximum.
Posted 05 November 2013 - 11:07 AM
Its not that, its caching problem. Memory usage here is 2gb, sometimes 4gb because am playing game but its never over 4gb.
Free is droping and Cached is alwaying rising. Thats the problem.

So I had this issue a bit ago, and I will give you the different options
Most of your RAM is because of superfetch and indexing. You can disable indexing, and change superfetch. The below link will give you instructions
TIP, TRY THIS AFTER YOU TURN OFF OR RESET SUPERFETCH.
I did this and it helps. For whatever reason Windows 7 is not correct in its running until 3 shutdown, start ups. So after you do this, remove all the items you don't want in start up, and you can even just load during start essential Microsoft items. you choice.
Then start up, login in. and Shutdown three time in a row. DON'T REBOOT but shutdown.
DO it as soon as it starts and you log into windows don't wait, soon as you see windows, go to shutdown.
This should allow windows to be optimized with almost nothing running. And keep a bunch of RAM free.
Also to increase buffer memory go to
I increased the VRAM in my computer. Windows by default will set it to the size of your installed memory. So 4GB then its 4GB.
But you should have it it 1.5 the current size. I double it, and that seems to be good. I rule of thumb is look at the recommended size and make that internal size. the size of your RAM and then max double it. I know it uses the HD for this and usually will not make items run faster but it will allow for a flow over space when RAM is at 90% or better.
Also in the same window to change page file, go to Visual Effects and change them to see if it helps
Also check to memory leaks. There is not standard for this. Get Process Explorer from sysinternals
then sort by private bytes and see what is grabbing the memory and Process Explorer, can help you find it.
Still looking for a reclaimer for the RAM, hope some of this helps
or you can auto do it with these
Here are a list of Memory Cashe cleaners and tuners
I dont use these but you can try them out.
So, how to reduce RAM usage? How to lower memory usage? One way is to reclaim unused physical RAM utilized by various running processes. How to reclaim RAM memory? These extra memory occupied by processes can be reduced, lowered and reclaimed by using third-party program. The following memory optimizer or memory reducer program can reduce, optimizer, lower and tune-up the RAM memory in PC computer in order to make computer runs faster, speedier and more responsive.
One of the best memory and cache optimizer and manager. Works by EmptyWorkingSet Windows API to instruct Windows to release unused memory of running applications or processes. CleanMem also clear the file system cache. CleanMem is not running in the background, instead being triggered by Task Scheduler or Scheduled Tasks.
Minimem is a memory optimization tools that allows you running modern applications on not-so-modern computers that are RAM-limited. You just choose which programs to optimize and how to do so, and Minimem takes care of the rest, running silently in your tray bar.
RAMRush is a free memory management and optimization tool. It can efficiently optimize memory usages of your Windows system, free up physical RAM and make your system work better. RAMRush uses an intelligent way to manage the physical memory and lets the RAM work in a better performance. It will help you to prevent system crashes, memory leaks and keep your computer running more efficiently.
HLP Free Memory Optimizer

I disabled kaspersky service, disabled Windows Search (indexing) service, i set prefetcher and superfetch to 0 and shutdown computer 3 times, but before that i deleted all files in C:/Windows/Prefetch
In regedit i used search and i mannualy searched for IoPageLockLimit but cant find it. It seems i dont have it. I will play game 1 hour and see what happens with cached and free memory.

so did you find anything, I can say from my expirence that it will come back. Windows has no good answers other than the memory is there it will come back. Seems to be a split between its OK and its NOT OK. I will say with Super Fetch only disable it when in game mode. Try playing around with super and pre fetch, see what combo is good for you. You could measure this on log in to windows by disk activity in Resource manger.
If you read the link post again it says
Not trying to be harsh, but I had to re read it myself after I looked for it, just REMEMBER to SAVE before you do this just in case?
