I was on my moms laptop , and I happened to be on myspace. What I noticed, is that after being on for about 5 minutes, my memory usage shot up from 47% too 89% and then 90+ hovering around 95% mem usage.

This doesn't seem to do this on other sites, i can leave a yahoo window up or something similar up for hours without any issue.

It's a stock gateway laptop, M-1624 , running Vista ; 2 gigs of RAM ;AMD Turion 64x2 TL-60 at 2.00 GHz

It's not that it's a major issue, just an annoying one that I don't really understand or have a solution too.
At first I thought it ight be malware, but I've successsfully scanned and cleaned the hell out of this thing with Malwarebytes ; and i've run a norton scan or two.

Any ideas as to what the issue might be? Any solutions ? thanks guys.

I had the same problem but, only when I tried to view someones photos. It rose really quickly; as fast as the computer would let it. Started at 121M or 121,000 kilos, then 200M, 490M, and slowly rose to 503M. My computer went to slowly for me to easily close the page. I'm using an Chrome version 15.0.874.106, and the update notifier is orangish-red. Running on Vista Service pack 1, 32 bit with 2Gigs of ram.
