Why is so much RAM being used? Tags: Memory RAM Task Manager Last response: February 9, 2013 3:29 PM in Memory Share austenr23 February 9, 2013 3:17:30 PM I have 8gb of RAM and that much is being used. I don't even think 1GB worth of RAM is being used according to task manager, but apparently I'm using over 5gb.. Also, I ran a full system scan last night to make sure it wasn't a virus. All I had were some tracking cookies that were removed. More about : ram blazorthon a b } Memory February 9, 2013 3:29:06 PM Explorer seems to be using too much memory. It only uses a few dozen MB at the worst for me unless I have a lot of folders open. dwm shouldn't use that much memory either AFAIK. Also, click "show processes from all users". That'll probably show you where a lot of your memory is going. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources : ForumToo much memory being used ? ForumWay too much RAM being used when idle?
