    When more RAM space needed those cached memory space are used.

    You can always disable Superfetch which is a Windows feature that will improves system performance over time.

    SuperFetch decreases boot time, and makes sure applications that you use the most launch faster.

    The Cache filled by SuperFetch and the standard caching mechanism runs on a lower priority; in other words, memory requests by applications will always supersede SuperFetch.

    In other words, whatever you see in the "Cached" figure is actually accessible to applications.


    You can disable SuperFetch service by opening the Command Prompt as administrator. To open Command Prompt type cmd.exe into Start Menu, right-click on Cmd.exe, and open it as an administrator.

    Execute following command:


    Code:
    Sc config SysMain start= disabled
    
    Sc stop  SysMain
    You may have to restart your computer to clear the cached.

    In itself a high value for cached does not indicate a problem. Usually this is a good thing. At present I have 8175 MB total memory with 5570 MB cached which is good and as it should be. Only in some unusual cases would this be a problem. We really need to see a screenshot of Task Manager - Performance tab, showing the memory information. A few numbers in isolation mean very little.

    If you really do have a problem it is unlikely that disabling superfetch will solve it.

    That is Superfetch service name you can execute sc qc sysMain command to view display name of this service which is Superfetc.
