Steps to reproduce

Start Service Module (32 Bit) shows in my task manager. This particular service fills up my RAM to 99% and completely slows down the computer. I have i7 first generation with 8GB ram and 1GB dedicaed Nvidia GT220 graphics card.

The only way to release the memory is by Clicking on END TASK on the particular service in TASK Manager.

I have been having this issue since past 8 months but decided to raise this issue now as I just realised that even EDGE hogs on memory.
