I recently upgraded my RAM from 8 gigs to 32 gigs. Previous to the upgrade, my computer would use between 3 - 6 gigs, depending on what I was doing. Now, post-upgrade, it's using 7 - 8 gigs as a rule! In checking the resource manager, I'm seeing that about 812,000 KB is being used by svchost.exe (LocalSystemNetworkRestricted). This seems a bit excessive to me, so I'm wondering if it's just that BECAUSE I have more memory, my PC is utilizing more of it just because it can. I still have 24 gig in standby, so it's not like I'm hurting for memory, but I'm still rather concerned. I did a full computer scan using AVG free last night, and it found a few medium level threats but reports having successfully contained them all.
FYI - I'm running Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate.
