Windows 8 uses 5.5GB of RAM???

So I asked this question on yahoo answers and got a superb answer. Stop superfetch as a windows service. So I disabled it, and nothing happened.


That is what I'm getting via taskmanager. 

What can I do to stop windows using so much RAM?
I don't want  to use pagefile, since I have a slow HDD (5400RPM).

Answer

Use a Windows Managed pagefile. Don't set limits..

 

Also, CTRL + SHIFT + ESC to Task Manager > Processes > CPU header > click on it until the processes using most resources are grouped at the top of the list..

 

Check each process out that is detracting from the System Idle Process..

Windows 10 Pro - Start10 - part of a local network which is a '3rd party optimizer-free' zone..
