hey why win7 pro using so much ram, ? i had page file disabled since i am using SSD on this older system and now i had to enable it, its put on win managed.

Only got a one p2p client and vlc running nothing else. I got 16gb DDr3 and fresh ram is not available or just makes no sense to get it current price.
i have already ran virus check, using MS essentials.

Well using MS essentials for win7 it's like you didn't use nothing at all...
Also what is the top process in task manager with description "t" ?

Win 7 (or any windows) usually uses a lot of ram for brief period of time during downloading updates....
Best if you download trial Bitdefender Internet Security and run a proper sweep of the system!

I had some problems with utorrent... its stacking some adds on top of each other and until I restart the system... the ram usage is going thru the roof... for 2-3 days it consumes... 3-4GB Ram (from 300MB the first day)...Use let's say qbittorrent... I'm very pleased with it... using it for couple month's now.... it's SOO much better than free utorrent!
