With Just firefox running, my (8gb) memory is reading at 40%? What's wrong with my system?

I've done memtests, and CCleaners, etc...

All I need is to be able to run some games and a browser.

Welcome to the forum. We're pretty good but you have to tell us some problem symptoms before we can start guessing (educated guesses, of course :D ) about causes.

If you use the Registry Wrecker ("Cleaner") option in CCleaner that is likely the source of one or more mysterious problems.

You mentioned that memory usage is about 40%. That is a sign that the system is operating well. Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 strive to keep the memory usage around 50% when possible. That way they aren't throwing away too much code that may be used again soon and also have lots of free memory available for whatever the next need may be. Much more efficient than in previous versions of Windows.

CCleaner: I've clean installed Win 10 preview since the last time I did that

40%: I need to host memory intensive game servers on this machine, and I would way rather have the os run slow than the server. How do I disable these things, or am I SOL?
