Hey guys,

 

Just need some quick assistance here... A service called "svc host" (http://prntscr.com/7lg9qd) is using 200'000 memory and more at times, and has the PID=1260 which is running the following: http://prntscr.com/7lg9l7.

 

My msconfig looks like the following: http://prntscr.com/7lga5rhttp://prntscr.com/7lgaa5.

 

Any idea's on how I could resolve this issue? Thanks!

Try disabling offline files.

Hello TsVk,

 

I turned that off and now it's at 190k not 200k. Any other things I could do?

FWIW:  200 KB for RAM usage by a svchost item...is nothing to be concerned about.

 

Your AV will typically be in the 300 MB area for RAM usage...a browser window will typically be in the 100-200 MB arena...Chrome users will typically have processes using RAM in the vicinity of 300-500 MB, IIRC.

 

I've seen users here post Speccy data reflecting anywhere from 800 MB to over 2 GB max RAM usage...they had items to be concerned about, IMO.

Part of that svchost group is your desktop windows manager, that can be quite memory hungry... and rightly so.

 

But we can keep disabling non essential things, there's a whole pile of stuff that runs on Windows by default that most people don't use.

 

You can disable your homegroup service also, assuming you don't share documents on a local network with other computers.

 

I find most Windows 7 machines use about 1.5-2GB of ram, just sat there... how is your usage?

That didn't effect anything sadly. Anything else? :)

What is your RAM load in the task manager when you're not running anything?

If your reffering to physical memory it's around %25-%30 when running only essential and side programs.

That is a little high for that machine.

 

Have you been through your services and disabled all the non-essential stuff? (through servcies.msc)
