Hey all -

I'm having a very odd problem.

I play some online RPGs that are very graphics intensive, and normally don't have a problem.

However, within the last month or so, I've noticed some slowdowns that cause a severe slowdown in my framerate.

I installed MemTurbo so I could get a graphical look at what is in my memory.

It seems that immediately after I run Internet Explorer, and also "randomly" after I turn on my computer without running IE, that my memory is getting "pinged" repeatedly. I can see this graphically as a lot of noise, or glitches, on the waveform of available memory in the MemTurbo tool.

Bottom line is that something is causing spikes of memory use, that seems to be related to IE use, or a prolonged on-time of the computer. These spikes end up impacting graphical performance in both the games I play, and even in internet access and loading.

Any ideas?

Ok, did what was suggested and this is the result. Does anything stick out as a culprit to the above description? Do you see any other problems here?

1st download "spybot" from here:
http://beam.to/spybotsd

clcik on the online tab and download any updates,go to "settings" file sets and un-check "sys internals" and "usage tracks"then hit the "check all" tab.....anything highlighted in red let spybot fix.
then post another startuplist,there is a few things that dont need to be running in the background.
