Hi
I have about 1 GB of memory and I have made no recent system changes. Something I've noticed lately is that my available memory has ben dropping drastically. When this happens, task manager shows that porcesses that normally take up a small amount of memory are now taking up about 10 times as much in KB. Something else that's odd is that I have will sometimes have three instances of the process CLI.exe running, each taking up a load of memory. I run System Mechanic 6's memory optimization over and over to get back the memory, but after this is all done the graph shows my memory availability starting to decline again. Does anyone have any ideas as to what may be causing this or what I can do to find out?
Thanks.

CLI.exe
System Tray access to ATI's CATALYST™ CONTROL CENTER. Note that this has "SystemTray" appended to CLE.exe in the "Command" column of MSCONFIG. Not required to run the control center - which is available via a right-click on the desktop

Added by the W32/Rbot-GAQ worm and IRC backdoor.

I would suggest running all the malware scans listed in this post. Just to eliminate the possiblity of malware causing your problem.
