Memory Problems?

I am running Windows 2000 Professional on a desktop with 64 mb of Ram (Shouldnt be, but anyways) in task manager it says im using 90-100 mb of memory just under system idle, no apps open at all.  And just the necessary processes are running.

This seems way too high for just idle, is there some sort of memory leak or something like that?

No, that sounds just about right.  I'm running 2K server in a test environment and my server is running at 109K at an idle state.  I realize that server is running more processes, etc. than professonal, however I am running 10 to 20 meg over you.  I guess that's why MS really would like to see 128M in the box.

No memory leak that is how much it uses, with mine at 128mb I am using 175mb with 2 browser windows, taskmanager, and outlook express as apps open besides normal processes.

Absoulte basic services with no open apps should be 90,232k or 90.2mb with a 64mb system you only get expanded to a 128mb pagesys.file which makes it really cramped.

Increase your virtual memory to at least 192mb minimum and max of 256mb you do that by going

Control panel|system|advanced|performance options

then adjust it from there this will help some but consider bumping it up to 128mb memory is cheap now a days.
