Specs:

Windows 7 Ultimate(32 Bit)

AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3200+ 2.00 GHz

2.00 GB RAM (Bought days ago)

 

When I try to download from firefox or from my download managers letmeatit and freemake, the ram usage increases to 90%+ over a period of mere 2-3 hours.. This has been bugging me since some months and I tried searching the internet but to no avail.. My System is protected by Avast and there are NO viruses OR MALWARES OR SPYWARES as I have Malwarebytes installed as well and the reports come out as CLEAN.. I also installed Super Antispyware just to be sure and the results are clean in it as well...

 

WISE MEMORY OPTIMISER DOES the TRICK FOR ME for a short amount of time but still the problem persists...

 

As in yesterday when I was downloading a PPV worth 8 GB from the WWE Network through letmeatit, the Ram usage started to fill up and reached 70%, I then downloaded wise memory optimiser in fear and to my surprise after optimising the usage dropped to 56% and the downloading was on without interruption.. So whenever the ram usage increased in 2 hours or so, I ran the optimiser and why wouldn't I as without the optimiser my download wouldnt have even completed and the computer would have froze..and I noticed the KERNEL NON PAGED MEMORY WAS in 1000's in about 13+ hours.. My computer was downloading continuously for 17 hours but I had to run the optimiser every 2 hours to prevent freezing...

 

Is it anything about the virtual memory :scratchhead: ??? I checked the task manager and resource monitor every hour and the processes and all were normal to my understanding.. :lol:

Hi Kusai ^_^,


Could you please open up Task Manager and then post back a screenshot of the RAM usage sorted in descending order? Do this when the Task Manager shows you that the RAM usage is pretty high.

When the RAM usage increases above a fixed percentage, Windows starts using the Hard Disk as a substitute for RAM which causes a pretty significant drop in the performance.

Also, could you please upload the ZIP file generated by the below tool?

Once the tool completes, it will generate a ZIP file on the desktop. Please upload that file to a 3rd party file hoster like MediaFire, OneDrive etc and post the link here.


Let me know in case of any problems ^_^
