What do you call a dominatrix from Bangkok?

... the Thai that binds.

SvcHost and me...a question

I have picked up a used laptop, and the previous owner left a lot of crap on it (75 processes running at once?). My query, though, is about the behavior of SvcHost. When I start the 'Net (WiFi connection), it uses up over 2.5 gigs of memory, which since I only have 4 gigs, means that I'm using about 90% of my available RAM. This degrades my surfing experience, so to speak. But suddenly, after a couple of hours of tedium, I find that it's only using 80k or so of memory, and I'm occupying only about 30% of available RAM.
Okay, I'm an ignorant idiot, but why is this happening, and is there anything I can do about it? I kinda like surfing, watching the odd video, and posting at DU.

Guess what, I'm alive!

My computer died some months ago, and it's taken me this long to save up the money for a replacement. Damn all fixed incomes. Worse yet, I haven't been able to read any news since last October Is the Republic still standing?

I'm sure you all missed me greatly.
