Since a few weeks, my computer is making more noise and the little led on the front, indicating memory-usage, is on for the majority of the time. Also, my computer has been considerably slower ever since this started.
At first, I thought maybe one of my RAM-memory sticks had broken down. However, I ran a memtest and the result was positive, everything was working fine... I've also removed them one by one to see if they were both really working.
When I look at my task manager, it tells me there are 75 processes running (Is that a lot?), the CPU-usage is about 10% and the physical memory-usage is 50-60%. This is when my computer is idling. When I'm running something like AVG virusscanner, the CPU-usage goes up to 60-70% and the physical memory-usage stays at about 60%.
My computer is an Acer aspire M1641. It's got 2x 2GB DDR2 (I guess..) RAM. It's running on Windows Vista 64-bit.
I'm running AVG antivirus and Malwarebytes anti-malware frequently, so I guess problem doesn't have anything to do with that.
PS: Excuse me for accidental grammar mistakes, english is not my native language
