Running a virus scan is always a good idea should you experience high RAM usage

29 % of how much ram do you have ?? If you have 8 gb and run w7 64bit that is about right.

Mine sits around 12-15% so that would equal out as I have 16 gigs. Makes sense to me. When I ran 6 gigs usual idle ram usage was about 25-30%

If that does not work I hop in a Madcat and Blast it to microscopic Particles.

I think he meant less than 29% aware of how to correctly calculate percentages lol

 

But yeah, that RAM usage seems just fine, the more RAM you give windows the more it will precache your most use applications in for your so things run smoother/faster. :)

 

I'm at about 2.85GB/16.4GB (my computer likes to use or lose 2GB of my memory whenever it feels like it) so I'm at a little over 17%
