iCloud services is using 99,700 K of memory. That seems excessive. Is it? What should I do to fix it?

 

Thanks.

I have not updated iTunes in a long time. To update it today I had to launch a clean boot. iCloud services is now using 33,000K. Is that normal?

 

During the update to iTunes a message "could not start Apple mobile devices services" was received. I hit retry a couple of times then I hit ignore. Is that a major issue?

 

Thanks.

Understood. Will do.

 

Last question: is it safe to shut iCloud services down?

I guess that I'm not understanding why you seem to think that reflected memory usage...is out of line.

 

Open Task Manager...tell us how much RAM your browser and your AV are using, please.

If you don't use cloud storage from Apple then you have no issue when you disable the iCloud services. The service provides its users with means to store data such as documents, photos, and music on remote servers for download to iOS, Macintosh or Windows devices, to share and send data to other users, and to manage their Apple devices if lost or stolen.
