I have a query or a problem am not sure myself LOL...

First thing
Physical Memory is 3581MB (Obviously because am running a 32 bit OS) Annoying really LOL
Cached 1735 ( Right I kind of get this )
Free 42 ( WTF - Sorry about the language )

It really annoys me that even though I have a good laptop I can't play even a flash game without lagging it after a while(by a while meaniing playing Restaurant City(facebook) for lets say 12 hours while revising for my exams LOL)  I mean WHYYYYY!! well I have an Idea its probably because of the heat LOL my laptops never off LOL

Anyways the real reason why I posting this is Look at the Image attached to this post and tell me is spoolsv.exe really supposed to use 1.1 GB of my Memory? isn't it just a thing that handles printing jobs.

Anyways please explain to me why so if there is nothing I can do I'll just call it my bad luck and officially accepting that I hate dell for this poor design 1 fan that to gets blocked if I push the screen backwards more than 85 degree? how dumb can they be...

If you have any solutions for this(well obviously not for the fan problem) Ill be very happy if you tell me thank you.

Never seen a Print Spool services using this much memory

Do you have a printer connected to the laptop permenantly  as if not you could reset the print spooler services to Manual and see if that improves performance

Have you checked within Printers and faxes to make sure that no documents are waiting to be printed (especially on the MS Image Writer) and have you run a virus scan
