A day ago, it was only using 2-3GB with programs running.

The sad thing is you left out of the image the programs that are actually taking up your ram. XD

Needless to say, I'm not in the mood for "XD" comments and the typical gamefaqs bravado

One program must be eating most of the memory even though it doesn't show that in task manager. I had this problem before when it was utorrent taking up all my ram until i changed a cache setting.

If this continues to happen and you can't find a program that is causing all your ram to be eaten up you most likely have a virus.

Is the computer actually acting slow/lagging? Is it windows vista or 7?
