My system seems to be using alot of ram . Right now it is using 1.21 gb just running this web page, and When running prime 95 I got a low memory warning. I turned off page filing, but this still seems excessive to me. Any ideas?

Also there are 12 instances of svhostexe running under processes even after closing all programs with end it all.

On my setup I'm using up 1.35GB of ram & 10 instances of svhostexe. That seems nominal to me.

Now that low memory warning is something new. Anything else you use gives that error besides P95?

I also got the low memory warning with windows experience index.
I turned off some services and havent got the error again, hopefully it's fixed.
Thanks, Derek
