Thursday, April 24, 2008 9:02 PMI am using vista 64bit ultimate, english version.
I just upgrade my computer's memory from 2GB to 6GB.
However, I notice a new svchost(LocalSystemNetworkRestricted) started automatically that it wasn't there previously with 2GB ram.
And it takes 119,292 KB memory.
Why is this happening?

What's a UAC?
I tried.. ProcMon.. somehow I can't find it.
Saturday, October 31, 2009 3:44 PMI got the same "problem" (is it a bug or a feature?). I noticed its RAM-usage rising to more than 400MB, which I maybe would mind less if I knew what it was for. Well, not really, 400MB is quite a lot of RAM
