I have 512 MB of RAM. When I look under Performance in task manager the CPU usage randonly spikes. It can be at 5% or lower and then all of a sudden shoot up to 90-100% for a few seconds when I dont have any programs actively doing anything. There are a ton of processes running and I dont know if they're all necessary or what they all do. There are 6 instances of svchost.exe (not sure if that is normal or not).
I have Trend Micro virus software and run Adaware regularly.
Is this a memory problem and if so there anything I can do to free it back up? Let me know what other information you need as I'm not sure what is and is not necessary to know.
