Hey so basically as you read in the title I used this command in power shell

get-process | Group-Object -Property ProcessName | Format-Table Name, @{n='Mem (KB)';e={'{0:N0}' -f (($_.Group|Measure-Object WorkingSet -Sum).Sum / 1KB)};a='right'}

and it says svchost is using 800.000 KB of memory, but it doesn't appear in resource monitor, so basically taskmanager says memory used is way more than it should be (I suppose it's because of that svchost)



so is it normal? I believe it does affect my pc performance.. any tips?

Looking at my PC, it doesn't seem outrageous. Mine is using 555KB.
You are at about 50% usage. What are you trying to "save" RAM to support? 8GB RAM is getting to be a minimum requirement with today's OS.
555 KB is nowhere near 800MB, and I'm not at 50% usage, I got 8GB of ram and when idling pc uses 20% of the ram
