How do I correct RAM usage jumping to 98-100% when using programs? I receive this error message.

"High use by:
"Windows modular installer"
"Microsoft windows search filter"

I'm using newly installed Windows 7 with 6GB of RAM

sounds like the install might have gotten messed up

click start
type cmd
in command prompt type
sfc /scannow
you should have a windows disc handy in case it finds bad system files.
