    Its likely fine, Windows Vista and 7 use Superfetch, which basically loads up commonly used programs in the background so they load faster when you launch them. What you want to pay attention to is the amount of Available RAM. If you see that dropping near or to 0 then its time for more RAM.

    Edit: Finally at home where I can check what my system looks like.
    61 Processes (I have multiple things open, its not just a bunch of crap like you'll see on a OEM install from a major computer manufacturer)
    Total RAM 3070
    Cached 1248
    Available 1218
    Free 19

    As above. Mine hovers between 1.3-1.4GB of RAM used just running the aero desktop, and with firefox running. It doesn't really change from that either, until I start gaming.
