So my computer is low on memory when only 200,000 kilobytes are used.

I have 2 GB of RAM.

2gb of RAM is not enough for Windows 7.

Please post a picture of the performance tab of your task manager so I can see how much memory your computer is really using.

2 gigs is "enough" for Windows 7, but it's not really enough for actual usage if you are doing anything real with your computer. I would recommend opening your task manager (control shift escape) and going to processes. Sort by what's using the most memory and tell it to stop. Close things you don't need open etc.

There's a program called Advanced System Care that I like that has a feature to clear your RAM and free it up if some program is hogging it all. If the first part didn't fix your problem you might look into ASC, it's free and it will clean your whole computer. I'm not sure if Glary Utilities has that feature or not, but that's another option for something that you can just click a button on and then ignore.

Really though, you should probably just get more RAM. 2 gigs in this day and age is really low

That picture shows you are currently using more than 2 gigs of RAM, that's why your having trouble.

If that number exceeds 2048 it means you have completely run out of memory and are running from swapfile.
You could do a quick fix and increase your swapfile size, but I suggest getting more memory.
