Where'd the techsupport forum go? Anyways
HOW MUCH is it driving me insane?
To the point where I'm seriously saying fuck you billyboy I'm installing Ubuntu.
SO Here is the history of my windows 7 problems I had a computer repair place install windows 7 ultimate for me, this however resulted in blue screens until I removed some things they installed this lasted a good year or until some malware infected my system so I did an install and this install lasted about 10 months it was probably the best install I had but eventually windows corrupted and I had to do the install dance all over agian then a few days ago I downloaded a Mugen game and un raring would freeze up windows eventually causing windows Explorer to go haywire and more ram being used than I was used to.
SO I do the install dance again wednesday Here's where it's starting to piss me off.
last install Daemount tools, Microsoft Security Essentials, Video drivers for my graphics card and my Audio driver all that running at once = 1 gig of memory used
This current install- AVG (becuase it's leaner I've been told) My Audio Driver and windows 7 SP1 (the previous install was not using it)- 1gig of memory + 100 MB sometimes 200mb I can get it down to 800mb being used total by transferring large amounts of date between my Computer Hard Driver and my external hard drive and hibernation kills some of these processes but eventually My Computer will not go into hibernation and.........the over ram begins again.
So I'm at a loss I don't know if something left over from the last install snuck into this one. if I botched this new install, if it's a hardware problem I just have no idea.
YES windows 7 is running smoothly with NO issues other than this extra few MBs of ram being used BUT it's more than I'd like to run and Windows seems to take around 10-20 seconds more too boot up than it used it.
Help me out here what can be done about this or should I do the reinstall dance again?
I've narrowed it down to an SVCHost Process that if I kill it disables my internet and changes my Windows 7 color scheme to basic (rather than Aero)
at least I think. I'm really not sure.
