    I'm running Vista Ultimate Full version and downloaded the "CPU and
    Memory" monitor and it keeps showing that something is running in the
    background and is using 35% of memory.
    How can I check in Vista to see what is doing this.
    Thanks

    Wouldn't it maybe be Vista itself using 35%?
    Run taskmgr.exe, go to the Processes tab, make sure you check the "Show
    process for all users" at the bottom. Also, go to View -> Select Columns,
    and select the 'Memory (private working set)'.
