I am running Windows 7 Prof x64 and I am concerned about its memory usage. Even when the computer was rebooted it uses up front 1.85GB of memory. I have 8G available however that sounds a lot to me. I have Office 2010, a AV scanner, yahoo messenger, snag it, nero 9, steam and a couple other smaller apps installed.
I have laptop which runs Windows 7 x32 with very similar applications (besides steam) and that uses half of the memory 900 MB when idle.
I did some reading on this and I saw several articles where people had the same issue but to be honest the answers went from "That is normal" to "You have an app with a memory leak installed".
Has anybody made the same or similar expirience and is that memory usage really normal.
