on the left is when i'm using Firefox, on the right is when I'm not. on the right side, i don't have ANY programs open. So why in the FUCK does it say 597/1061?? :/ usually when i have everything closed it's about 200-300MB..not fucking 600MB. what the hell happened?
there is a process called "svchost.exe" and it seems to be eating my resources. there are quite a few of those files running. why?? why so many? that is so stupid.
maybe it has something to do with the pagefile? i messed with the numbers so that if too much RAM is used, the pagefile will increase. i don't mind the disk space reduction, tbh. my computer works fine right now...it says 715/1061.
when i restart and there are no programs open, it's between 200-300MB, but after i open Opera or Firefox, the svchost.exe increases and stays that way. urgh.
btw, there is an option to not have a pagefile in use. should i click on "no pagefile"? what will happen?
like it matters. gonna get a 'new' computer soon anyway lol.
EDIT: oh GREAT >:|
Because svchost.exe is used as a common system process, some malware often uses a process name of "svchost.exe" to disguise itself. Determining the image path of a process, and its invoking command line, can help identify software masquerading in this way, and help locate the actual program file which is running under the assumed process name of "svchost.exe" (Windows allows multiple processes to all display the same name). Some malware inject a .dll file into the authentic svchost process
seems like i got some malware :| fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
