Hardware reserved 72.0 MB

You computer hardware needs some memory to function. That is where the memory it uses is reported.

People seem to think that if they buy 8GB of memory, that they are going to have exactly 8GB free. And that just ain't gonna happen. Ever. Windows gobbles up memory like a fat pig. Then the hardware has to steal a bit for itself. And then you load up programs, and there are all those little startup programs that load too.... You computer is a very complex thing, and its doing a whole lot of things that you rarely even know about. And somehow, that all has to happen in the memory you installed.

Hey Look! The same memory thief is stealing my memory too!!!


Maybe this will stop him!! :gun:
