RAM is way to easy to use up.... *GB of RAM is definitely not enough. Need more RAM...

What OS? A fresh install of Windows 7 uses maybe 1 GB idle.

No... you need a better OS and/or applications that don't leak memory.

I have 86 processes open, and I'm only using just under 2 GB. It sounds like you're running something that is really RAM hungry.

Unused ram is wasted ram. If anything it should be using it for cache.

Hmmmm my broswer seems to be the heaviest thing that totals up to like 1.5GB including the plugin container with it.

Is their some kind of program I can download that will find all the programs and shows how much RAM is being used from them. Task Manager only does so much and often times I seen that some programs dont even get listed AT ALL on it.
