Question about Sony VAIO Notebook
Like I said,my memory just keeps decreasing until it hits around 1% of available physical memory.That's about the point where I shut my PC off ,because I'm afraid it might explode or something .What could be causing this?I did a system restore to about a day before this started happening,but the problem still persists.Is this some kind of virus or is this in some way hardware related?Thank you for your time.
It may well be some form of virus or spyware.
It may also be that you have too many applications running at once eg. lots of toolbars and instant message typ programs.
It can also happen on graphic intensive applications.
You should rule out nast stuff first.
for a free one its pretty darned good !
From a CLEAN computer download and put on a flash drive.
Copy to your DESKTOP on the suspec computer.
Run it but dont change any options just use what it offers.
When its done let it clean anything it finds.
Its where I always start with an infected machine.
As for antivirus AVOID Norton or Mcafee but try the AVG FREE version MBAM should clean up without buying
Only continued use would require purchase As for too many applications that would be up to you to decide what you REALLY need and dont. Most toolbars are a waste of both time and space and can hog computers down. Maybe a good clean up is in order ?

I would recommend running a spyware scan to remove any malicious software on the system. Below is the link to a free spyware scanner that works very well.
