    I found out that my computer uses 58% ram when idle. I would like to know how I fix this and what is causing it to be this high. My computer currently has 16gbs of ram. Here are some screenshots from task manager. http://imgur.com/a/aKsMZ

    The purpose of having RAM in a computer is for it to be used and not to remain idle.
    RAM is much faster than virtual memory from the hard drive.

    Do the following in your computer so we have a better picture of its hardware and operating system:
    Download and save the TSG System Information Utility (SysInfo.exe) file.
    After it's been downloaded and saved, double-click it to run it.
    Information about your computer will appear.
    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE text here.
