comment Windows 7 x64: 3900mb of 4gb RAM usage, even when (almost) nothing running
I am now at 2gb used having run it all day, it hasn't risen about 2.5. I think that might have been it. Thanks! Weird though, that Kaspersky should have such a profound effect... :)

James, thanks for your response. As I just told Chris above, I realised that I changed antivirus from AVG to Kaspersky recently. I uninstalled it, rebooted, and have been running at 1.5gb usage for about 20 minutes now. If things turn to shit again later, I will come back and try your suggestions as well. Thanks very much, Rory.

Chris, Thanks very much for your input. I realised that I changed antivirus from AVG to Kaspersky recently. I uninstalled it, rebooted, and have been running at 1.5gb usage for about 20 minutes now. I'll check back later to let you know if it stays this way. If it doesn't, I'll be sure to give some of your suggestions a go. Thanks again, Rory.
