I just wanted to check to see how you are determining your RAM usage.  Is it through Task Manager, and if so, what does it show for the process(es) consuming the most RAM?  Also, when using Task Manager please be sure to click on Show processes from all users at the bottom in the Processes tab and to sort the list by memory usage (Memory (Private Working Set) I believe is what it's called, at least here on Windows 7).  If you don't see that column, then click on View at the top and click on Select Columns... then check the box next to Memory - Private Working Set, though you can also enable the entries next to the other Memory - entries as well if you wish to check those as well.
