Computer Help? (Low CPU, High Physical Memory)

5002 Views 17 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Barnett114
Hey KTT fam,
I have a windows 7 computer, and lately my computer has become really slow: My CPU usage is steady around 10-20, but Physical usage is around 90.  My computer is on for days at a time, generally.  Anyone know enough about computers to help me?

physical memory is at 90% ?? that typically means you have a ton of processes on at a single time, For example if you have like 20 tabs open on your browser along with iTunes and other programs. You can lower your memory usage quickly by closing out of programs, also if you stop unnecessary programs from opening on startup. That should help too. Depending on how much RAM you have you should see an increase in speed. I have 4GB of RAM and when its idle I only use about 35-40% of my memory.
