Does anyone know why Google Earth loads up "my" RAM and/or why it won't dump?

I think it is a problem with Vista (or maybe just mine)

It does not do this on my XP system.

When I start google earth my RAM is around its normal range of about 32% to 34% usage. (which is around 1GB)

As I use google earth, and within 10 minutes, my RAM gets bloated up to around 70% at which point google earth starts to freeze or will simply shut down. It takes up nearly 2GB of RAM!

I have used the cache clear option under the google earth tools section and if I use it soon enough I can play around in google earth for a bit longer.
So why is it only doing this on my Vista OS?

Does anyone here play around with Google Earth?

Anyway, I figured out my problem and it is definitely not related to Vista. :)
I had my cache allowance set to high under the GE tools/cache.
Set it to the lowest possible setting and now it works just fine. :)
