carpo, you are under the misguided impression that you want memory released, that you want free memoryi dont think i will - i still have 1.8gb free so i think i will have enough, i did find that changing the power config from balanced to high makes a difference
well, vista is still hungry and personally I don't see where all that memory is being spent but there you have iti understand that now - its doing what linux does - fill up the whole mem, why linux seems faster , but i didnt know that that was how they had windows set up now - now that i know im no longer concerned with how much mem is in use becuase i know what its for.
At first i thought vista was being a mem hungry whore - now i know different
on a slightly different subject (as if like xp sp1 vista changes service names) what do people think of this page
i used the xp settings when i was on xp (might go back yet depends if i like vista and can find the £120 OEM agan - im not paying £340 for retail)
was google that complained because it also interfered/slowed down/messed with google desktop search.I think that has something to do with companies giving MS crap for forcing the desktop search brand component on you, but can't recall specifically.
Strange but I too have lost search on the start menu I had not noticed.
