    Default Memory is being eaten alive!!!

    I didnt have this problem not too long ago. My memory and my virtual memory are draining faster than a minuteman at Hooters. It only happens when I am online though. It is not a virus that has been detected by my AV, and past that Ive got nothing. Can someone possibly shoot an idea at me or something?

    Run a spyware scan as well as your AV scan. Google Adaware or Spybot to get a free program.

    When you notice your memory is being drained, place you mouse over the taskbar, and right click. Select Taskmanager from the menu. In task manager, go to the Processes tab, and scroll through it to find the program that is using an unusually high ammount of memory. Once identified, you can update it (if it is just a program with a memory leak, like I have one that I can't use for more than 4 hours before it has used all my memory), or you can uninstall/delete the thing.

    Another thing that may help is to google for a program called Process Explorer and download it. It is Windows Taskmanager on crack-cocaine. I find it a little better to use.

    Give that a shot.
