A little explanation is required here.
I've got 2 gigs of physical ram.
I've noticed that the more i load and close, internet pages, Folding at home stuff, any programs that I start us memory, and cache.
The resource monitor says stuff like: "Memory: 33% used by programs. 22% used as cache."
when i first turn my computer on it says "Memory: 13% used by programs. 12% used as cache"
after a day or so, or if I use my computer a lot i'll see "Memory: 33% used by programs. 66% used as cache"
I can close everything yet it will still say its using all that memory and cache.
the only performance issues i notice is internet speed seems to drop, and program load times drop slightly. (almost not noticeable)
its just my OCD that kicks in and says "the devil is it doing with all that cache?"
anyone know why that is? or how to clear it?
