So until about a month ago TF2 ran fine. Even with it on the busiest of servers, with four or five chrome tabs open and windows media player running, my computer barely hit 45% Memory usage. (4GB RAM).

Now recently, TF2’s memory usage has skyrocketed up to 1.2GB of RAM, meaning that most servers push me above 90% RAM usage, leading to stutters and frame drops, rendering it almost unplayable. Even with nothing open but TF2, and the game just sat on the main menu, memory usage is about 65%.

I’m really not that technologically orientated, so some help would be greatly appreciated. :>
