OH Smeg

But it is how Windows works. The entire idea is that a used application isn't left open and running for long periods of time unused. if it's used it's available but if it's idling in the background it gets Paged out of the Current Operation and stored as a Virtual Operation.

This also happens when you have 4 GIG of RAM loaded but it's a bit faster to load into Memory from the Virtual. That is the only difference.
