Hello, windows 8 community. I recently purchased a windows 8 PC, and it has worked well enough so far. however, as of late, I have encountered many error messages citing a shortage of memory, and after a short investigation, I determined that almost half of my RAM is shown as "Modified" in the task manager performance tab, stating that it must be saved to disk before it can be used. I captured the attached image to illustrate. I would like some assistance in remedying this problem, as it has brought my computer to it's knees, constantly causing programs to crash and files and pages to fail to load.
- Windows 8, 64 bit (laptop), Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.x (desktop)
