Ok here's a short run down of my problems, sorry if this gets wordy but my head's a little scrambled since I've been reading conflicting/irrelevant information for the past 12 hours or so. My computer runs at 87% memory usage at idle. The running processes don't equal up to this at all. When I run a game or even just a web browser it shoots up to 97% usage. Some sites I've read actually say this is normal for Windows 7. I'm running Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1. Other problems I've run into are services.msc will open but immediately goes to not responding no matter how it is opened, and windows update apparently can't search for updates anymore. That was working just yesterday. I've run virus scanners/malware scanners like crazy but all that was found were highlighty registry keys. System Restore won't open either. I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic tool and it reported that I had memory errors. So I began to look into hardware problems. I killed my overclocking, made sure the ram was set to the right voltage, updated my mobo's bios and it has made no difference. Windows troubleshooter will not load either (not responding) not that I expect much help from that. I'm probably leaving something out but that should be enough to get some help. I'm thinking about doing a System Repair to see if that might fix some of these problems. sfcscan said everything was ok. The computer runs a little on the slow side, especially during gaming but it does actually run. I really don't want to have to re-format and fresh install, but if it comes down to it I guess that's what I'll have to do. I just figured I'd check here first for some information. Thanks for reading and any replies in advance.
