Why is so much RAM being used?

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.

  1. 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.
