Yes it is possible. The Laptop has been being used for over a year now so SuperFetch is being utilized. Not to mention i have disabled most of the other services that are not wanted/needed in Vista with the BlackViper Guide. You don't think it can be done. Fine. I know it is being done. Sometimes, depending on the web pages opened it jumps up cause they are more flash based. But i know that with simple sites that it doesn't use that much.

I know cause i have a resource monitor showing. Which tells me how much RAM i have being used at any time. Everyone gripes about Vista and i am sick of trying to defend it. So believe it or don't. It doesn't bother me. I know it can be done. I can show you a screen shot but then i would just hear that it is photochopped. So really what would it prove.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

Phone: LG Optimus G Pro
Running: Stock JB from LG with Nova Launcher
