Hi again.

Im using Windows 7 now for a while. I was reading on another forums reports by multiple users about abnormal usage of RAM (100% usage) while installing games or programs and it causes stalling while CPU usage is near 0%. I was wondering why, because I didnt notice that behaviour on my computer never before. But yesterday when I was installing a game I noticed just that. The installation proces was very slow, RAM usage was 100%, CPU at zero. So I suspect a update of a kind or something similar is cousing this problem.

Can you help me findig and solving this problem?

My system:
Windows 7 build 7323 (other users that reported teh problem are using different build and have same problems)
Q6600
4GB RAM DDR II
RAID 0 2x SSD 128GB
NOD32 v.4

Thank you. :)
