Around 3.2GB RAM is best you can get.

This is accurate.  OP reports he is only able to use 2 Gbytes, so one question is how to get him to the full 3.2 Gbyte of RAM.

OP why did you install 32-bit O/S on a 64-bit machine?

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
 
post-33068-0-86653600-1480692866_thumb.j

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

I will just jump in here concerning this memory usage readout:

 

Percentage of memory in use: 85%
Total physical RAM: 1967.11 MB
Available physical RAM: 285.96 MB
Total Virtual: 4663.04 MB
Available Virtual: 1674.52 MB

If this is accurate, you are in danger or maxing out your memory usage; for what you are doing this is way too high. In addition, you are supposedly running 4 gigs; even if you can only use a little over 3gigs, it is not showing.  I would check out what programs are loading and make sure you don't have any memory leaks.


Help Requests: If there is no reply after 3 days I remove the thread from my answer list. For further help PM me.

Your Speccy link does not work for me...and Ranchhand is correct.  The data posted thus far only shows 2GB RAM installed.

Please uninstall the Avast AV...you also have Windows Defender active, no need for another AV.  Having more than one active on a system has proven to be troublesome for systems.

 

Not at all sure why Speccy indicates 4GB RAM installed...while MTB reflects only half of that.

 

Also appears that you have an illegal install of Windows, see Scheduled Task for Auto KMS.

Most of the pc repair places that i know of install win7 on the slide, same happened to winxp and win98 when they got old ;)

 

I know one place that douse reinstall of win7 for $40, at that price i don't see how its legit when a real copy of win7 last i checked was $100 or something.

Hi, @N8ku:

 

Yes, @hamluis is correct -- AutoKMS is a sure sign (on a home computer) of MS piracy (Windows, MS Office, etc.).

 

Eventually your Win10 installation will run afoul of the MS activation servers and you will be out of luck.

You will need at some point to obtain a valid, legal copy of Windows.

 

If you think you were the victim of an unscrupulous shop/retailer/technician or other source of the pirated Windows, your best bet might be to contact Microsoft and explain the situation.

That may result in two favorable outcomes:

  • the person(s) who sold it to you will be shut down and prevented from victimizing other customers;
  • MS may provide you with a legal key as a "reward" for making the report.

Here are a few helpful links (they are for US -- I assume there are similar links in your locale):

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/piracy/reporting/default.aspx

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/piracy/reporting/faq.aspx

 

Cheers,

MM
