I have a weird problem on two of my computers. Running an installer for a game will cause the ram usage to shoot up to 99%. It does this on both Vista and 77, and ive had it for years and can never figure it out. The ram wont be restored until after i to a system restart. Anyone have any ideas?

you might wanna check your memory, i had recurring memory leaks in dvd rippers, setup files, archives... when my DDR went bad.

no whenever i install a game. 40% of the time it doesnt though, but a game installer that does it, always does it.

game installers have to unpack ALOT of data, the decompression library might be massive.

nope found the problem. Its poweriso and mounting iso thats taking up all the ram, some kind of bug or something. Using daemon now :)
