    Hi -- My Vista Home Premium desktop is running on the slow side. I checked the Performance tab on Windows Task Manager and see something that looks strange. I have 4GB of RAM, and I know not all of it can be used by 32 bit Vista. However, there is a shockingly low amount of RAM showing as "free".

    Under Physical Memory on the WTM Performance tab it shows the following:

    MB
    Total 3325
    Cached 2048
    Free 57

    I'm currently only running Windows Live Mail, Firefox (13 tabs) and Norton 360. Why would there be only 57 MB of RAM free?

    Thanks for your help.
