RAM usage stays high after using and exiting programs
I just registered a new account here at THGF, but I have been using these forums for a very long time. I always got my answers through searches, but this time I couldn't get my answer.
After using Camtasia, some adobe products like Photoshop, Audition, Dreamweaver and Windows Live Writer my RAM usage stays very high.
My computer spec:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 8GB Kingston HyperX 1066 System HD 200 GB WD SATA 3 X 1TB Seagate HD SATA Asus P5-Q Mobo Sapphire HD5850 Graphic Card Windows 7 64bit
Running programs: uTorrent mIRC Internet Download Manager MSN Messenger Winamp Agent Eset NOD32 64 bit ATI CCC
When I boot into Windows 7 my RAM usage is below 25% but after using those programs and exiting them, my RAM usage stays at 58%. My computer isn't slowing down or anything like that, I'm jut wondering why this is happening and is there a way for me to lower the RAM usage after exiting those programs without doing a reboot.
Thanks in advance.

Windows 7 caches programs that it thinks you're likely to use again so it can open them again quickly. I shouldn't worry about it.
