  1. when ever i go into a program that uses a lot of RAM and i close it the computer will go really slow for about 10 mins. i think its like dumping the memory or something. im not sure. so is there anyway i can make it so it dumps faster or what ever its doing?

    1) What is your OS?
    2) are you running games?
    3) have you cleaned out the excess files with **** cleanup?

    1.which programs in particular do that or does it do that in every program you run
    2. if they are non system critical ones, set their priority low
