Why is my Windows 7 using so much memory?

Why is my Windows 7 using so much memory?

Ok so I open the task manager, select show all processes from all users and about 20-30 processes come up totalling around 500mb usage max od memory, when I then click the Performance tab, it shows as 1.4GB being used! Where is it eating up all this extra memory? Is this a built in feature to reserve memory or something?

All this behavior is part of technologies introduced in Windows Vista such as SuperFetch and File Indexing. Your account of your available RAM and disk activity is normal and expected. I share with you similar numbers.
