It could be there are a few programs running at start-up and in the background.
Please download Autoruns from HERE
1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.
2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".
3: Click on the "Everything" tab
4: Remove any entries that mention "File Not Found" by right-clicking the entry and select Delete.
5: Go to File then to Export As.
6: Save AutoRuns.txt file to know location.
7: Attach to your next reply
Once I have taken a look from there we can decide were to go from there.

Download Process Explorer: http://technet.micro...s/bb896653.aspx
Unzip ProcessExplorer.zip, and double click on procexp.exe to run the program.
Click on View > Select Colunms.
In addition to already pre-selected options, make sure, the Command Line is selected, and press OK.
Go File>Save As, and save the report as Procexp.txt.
Attach the file to your next reply.

Were you using WMP at the time of a snapshot?

Don't forget that as you use your computer Windows is still processing information and there are still background processes running even if you aren't doing anything with your PC.
There are allot of processes running but nothing to be alarmed about.
I think 40% is reasonable for Vista, but then again 60% on memory seems allot, but I will wait and see if Broni agrees.
You do have some start-up items that could be disabled but I'm not in a position to look and write your log yet so give me some more time there unless someone gets to it first.

Don't forget these are different things, physical memory is referring to your RAM, the main hard drive is obviously your hard drive for storage, not the system memory.
i was yes. thanks again for your help. When i open task manager though it says cpu usage over 40% and physical memory at 60. surely this cant be right? there are 215 gb free on the main harddrive. Sorry if my questions seem elementary, i'm not too hot with computers
