svchost.exe using up a lot of memory

Hi,

For the past few days I have noticed a performance hit of my computer,
I checked the task manager (as I expected the CPU usage to be quite
high) however it was only at 30%. I went into the performance tab and
noticed the following:

Physical Memory (MB)
Total 2045
Cached 1396
Free 0

however the graph above shows that I have about 50% of my memory free
(only using 1.01GB). Also, in the processes tab I noticed that svchost
is using up 77,816 K of Memory (private working set - unsure of what
that means)... so I am a bit confused as to why I have 50% of my
physical memory free (according to the graph), but then it also says I
don't have any free (according to the table shown above)? Also why the
svchost is taken up so much memory?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks in advance

Chris

Re: svchost.exe using up a lot of memory
Hello,

This is natural for vista because, it takes up lots of memory, check on the
internet thats why you need lots of RAM for vista, I dont know if it's its
just random processes or is it a group but there is nothing we can do until
a update or service pack fixes it.
