comment Windows tells me there isn't enough memory and asks to close Firefox, but why this actually happens is unclear
watch: channel9.msdn.com/Events/TechEd/NorthAmerica/2011/WCL405 .. after that, play around with vmmap and rammap (both tools of the sysinternal suite).

@dan1111: since everything is computed it is indeed possible in theory. because one can change the computation. feel free to answer the solution / how to change that computation in an answer.

comment Where does Windows 7 waste my RAM?
there are a lot of possible explanations: ram fragmentation, bigger pointer-size (overhead), different versions of the programs you use which handle things differently (eg, browser like to store things in cache-files. these cache files are also kept in ram. if a browser changed the way it handles the cache file it might prevent the OS from releasing that file from the ram). ram fragmentation for example is quite common: program 1 needs x amounts of tiny chunks. when program 2 launches, there might be not enough bigger chunks left, no matter how many free tiny chunks are left.

comment Where does Windows 7 waste my RAM?
@jaraics: watch the video i stated. the dude talking about the ram wrote the sysinternal suite, rammap as well. windows releases the ram based on several criteria (there are multiple subcategories in the "standby" section)

it makes not sense to give all programs "focus" because that neglects the meaning of "focus". what the programm does when it loses it focus is upon the program: you may not like it but that is the way it works.

your comment does not make the situation clearer: if you route the packets of the pc through the router to an outside machine and then back into the router: everything works (ascii-flow: pc → router → outside-machine → router-ftp) ?

mhh .. you can also tell defender to update it's signatures upon startup via group-policy-editor: "administrative templates" -> "windows components" -> "windows defender"

comment Debian VPS server - backup
"i connect from normal pc over internet" ... you are connecting from your pc (which is located behind the router) to the ftp-server onto the router by first routing outside (by using an external ipv4 address) and then back onto the ftp-server and this works?
