  • High initial RAM usage indicates too many start-up programs. Use msconfig.exe to ensure only those programs/services that are necessary start when the system boots up. Use the Startup tab and the Services tab (before making changes here, please check the Hide all Microsoft services checkbox) in the utility to configure the changes.

    If you want a detailed view of which applications are using what % of the physical memory, download and use Process Explorer from the link below:

    After completing the above steps, if you still think your system is not as optimized as you want it to be, kindly revert back here. We'll go deeper. Hope it helps!

  • Download and run Autoruns from the following web address

    http://technet.microsoft.com/it-it/sysinternals/bb963902

    You'll get the complete list of the programs and services loaded and executed at system boot and decide what to do.

    Bye.
