    The physical memory on this goes up really high, and stays there with maybe a little drop for about 20 minutes. It also goes up real high once every few days. It wasn't really an issue in the winter.. i don't turn off my computer but now it's stormy and I will be each night if there is even a slight chance of rain and waiting half an hour to use this is really freaking inconvenient.

    This has been going on for months. I have used avast, malwarbytes, and this trendmicro thing numerous times and nothing ever comes up. Everything was fine up till about a year ago. Then it started taking forever to sort itself out and let me do anything. I'm an nearly to the point where I'm willing to try to install more RAM(?) .. but I shouldn't need to do that. The PM shouldn't be so high in the first place! Something is causing it... some setting or something I installed maybe or turned off to get it to start up quicker...

    Anyway.. posted in here even though i probably wont get an answer because years ago when I did have a virus it did the same thing, except to a much greater extent that never resolved.
