Enough RAM?
I'm such a post whore. :p

Anyway, I went around counting how much RAM all my processes take... and it takes 0.39005GB. This may not seem like much, but it's not very far from half a gig!

Well, the point is... Counterspy is the major reason for this. Totalling all its processes, it runs at around 150,000K. Is .4GB too much for just background processes (I've got a total of 2GB RAM)? If so, bye bye CounterSpy and welcome back SpySweeper.

That's a HUGE amount of RAM for a program like that. Oblivion takes up around 500,000K. iTunes (which is a pretty big hog) is taking up about 50,000K for me. 150,000K for something like that is ridiculous.

Re: Enough RAM?
that sounds really bad, ive never even seen one take that much

Re: Enough RAM?
150,000K is for multiple processes. There are two copies of sunThreatEngine.exe, and one SunProtectionServer.exe. This is in the processes tab.

Lol I have a few games that dont even take that up.

When temp internet files accumulate Opera does about 150, 180k. Then it crashes or I restart the browser and its all fine.

Anyways, for a program like that, yes way too much.

Re: Enough RAM?

Re: Enough RAM?
Yeah... this is a trial. Should I just ditch out on the program, even though it performs better than SpySweeper?
