If you want to reduce your memory footprint, then disable as many unnecessary running processes in task manager as possible. I would also go through the list of programs that start on Windows start-up and disable all the ones you don't need.

What that means is that you have too many things running for the amount of RAM you have.

1. Don't have so much stuff running
2. Turn off some start up things
3. De-virus your system
4. Install more RAM

But you have 5.2GB available? There is nothing to worry about! If your PC is getting slow, there must be another reason. Post your full specs, explain "slow" and we may be able to help.

Best solution

Well, 100-150 is still a heck of a lot. If you see large performance changes like that, though, and nothing has changed about your computer, it is most likely because of an update to the game not playing well with graphics drivers or a driver update not playing well with the game.

That means the OS and whatever else is running is using 2.3GB. Perfectly normal.
