Default Half my memory gone

SSU is taking up half my memory for some reason, when it was on my old 1gig machine it didnt take up any where near that much. Any ideas?

ssu.exe - ssu - Process Information
Process File: ssu.exe or ssu
Process Name: Spy Sweeper Module


Description:
ssu.exe is a process belonging to Webroot Spy Sweeper which protects your computer against Internet-bound threats such as spyware and trojans which can be distributed through e-mail or attack directly to the computer allowing unauthorized access to your computer. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.


Recommendation for ssu.exe:
ssu.exe is not a critical component, , which means you can disable it if you wish--but see the information above before disabling it. It is highly recommended to Run a Free Performance Scan to automatically optimize memory, CPU and Internet settings.

Here's the free scan if you wish to do it:

I don't know why it's taking up so much space but it appears to be part of the spyware program you have. Also, it may as well be a virus too--posing to be a legit process. Run some virus scans and other antispware scans just in case.
