Default Vista Help >_>

Ok I have some problems with vista..

1. My RAM usage is enormous, even when im running only the pure essentials. It is always 800mb+
Is that normal?

2. I switched to windows classic GUI in an attempt to lower ram, and now there is no option to bring it back to vista aero!

1.) Yes 800megs is normal for Vista.

2.) If you switched to the classic GUI there is no Aero.

Vista buffers alot of processes into your ram to speed things up. How much ram do you have? Under normal use with my normal apps running I use between 1.2-1.4gigs of memory.

oh u want aero back on? Right Click on the
Desktop and click Personalize. Click Visual Appearance ->Open Classic
Appearance Properties. Ensure that Windows vista Aero is selected and click
OK. Now click the checkbox next to Enable Transparent Glass and click OK.
You should now have the Glass effect enabled.
