Lately, I've noticed that after running memory intensive programs, namely bf2, processes that really shouldn't use much memory are using a lot more. CTHELPER.EXE, fraps.exe, ctfmon.exe and rundll32.exe all usually run on less than 4000 K each (according to task manager). But after bf2, these processes will sometimes jump to as high as 45000-50000 k. I'm kind of confused as to what's going on. Is there any way to fix this, or to limit the amount of memory these processes have access to?
Any help would be much appreciated!
