Recently, I noticed that my RAM usage is high. It jumps up to 35 & 40, while it used to be 15% or less. This affects my gameplay and I can't play any game smoothly. CS:GO for example was perfect, now I have a lot of FPS drops and FPS spikes.

Ask for anything that may help you finding a solution for me.

Thanks in Advance!

Check your startup programs as i can see a few from your process list may be saying it goes high at times now only showing using 841mb not much. Operating system alone will use a good amount seems biggest one are Windows desktop manager, explorer using the most and next windows desktop gadgets.  Have 2GB RAM. Need to figure out which program may be using RAM at times more. Start by disabling useless startup items in MSCONFIG at run type this and select startup tab. Try CCleaner free to do this also, easier   http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner


Start by first trying to disable uneeded startups. Have you recently added anything ? Software or hardware. Adding more RAM of course being another solution, an 8GB would be sufficient for most games today.

This could be other causes to an issue like this, virus. So i would run a scan. Mostly it maybe a process at times is using RAM from some program.
