    i think i figured it out, it was superfetch that was being a memory hog.

    does anyone here with vista 64bit have this problem if you enable superfetch?(i.e. over 100,000k memory usage in one of the svchost.exe)

    Why is this a problem? Memory exists to be used. If there's lots of it free, then that's kind of like wasted potential. ;)

    Of course, if some process is hogging memory and not releasing it when it's needed more by more important processes, or if the memory use is causing slow down or other issues, that's a problem. But some process using lots of memory by itself is not a problem. SuperFetch will use a lot of memory. But if some process the user is running needs more memory, it will get it - SuperFetch will release it in such cases. It's a pretty handy technology, and it does actually speed things up.

    Don't go worrying about memory usage unless the system is visibly slowing down or unstable.
