I dont know if this is really a problem but i noticed that when my pc is on idle dwm.exe is on 17mb ram usage and after i enter a game it goes up to around 45ish mb and never goes down even after i exit the game,when i asked my friends if their dwm.exe is over 40mb when they exit the game they say its around 15ish mb and mine stays at 45mb is this something serious?
