Looks fine. The "Free" and "nonpaged" are percentages not MB values.

Hi Hi,

Thanks sooooo much... I wasn't sure... the reason I asked though is because my CPU usage seems to drift up to 100% alot. I don't have much open but could it be the music slowing it down? (20gb) When I have firefox running it seems to use a lot too but it never did before! I restored my system because it was sluggish but it still does it.

Have you looked at the running processes? Are there any that are using a lot of CPU time?

Have you checked and removed unnecessary startup items: http://blog.ryantadams.com/2007/12/...

How about checking for malware?

I have checked the processes and although there are 63 running (seems alot no?) there is still only a small amount of cpu being used by each one. It only seems to get over loaded whn I have a few internet windows open. And usually with Firefox.

I have also gone to the start up menu option and have removed all the unness items from there.

Mailware? Don't know how to check for that.....

Really am hoping that it is not a firefox thing because I do like the browser.

Much appreciated for this Ryan.

You don't need to look at the CPU usage in task manager, you need to memory usage for each process in task manager. When you notice your free RAM is low, start the task manager, and look for any processes that are using a ridicules amount of RAM (say 75,000 or more).
