I have just realized that the default applications when I turn on my laptop are taking 70 % of my physical memory (measured using the "Windows task administrator", it is the number that appears at the bottom right part of the Performance tab) I have 1013 MB of physical memory according to it as well.
Because of this, I have problems running big word documents that take more memory than usual. They just crash because there is not enough memory!, and also origin files that are a bit large. They keep crashing because there is not enough memory.
1 GB is more than enough I think, therefore I believe that something strange is going on in my laptop, but I cannot say what.
Could you please give a hand in this issue?
