[around 100MB it appears] Jesus I knew it was bad but that's crazy. And this was on an XP machine with 256MB. Its amazing what a difference adding 256MB and replacing Norton with AVG can do. Commit charge dropped from around 280-300MB to 180MB or so by ditching Norton. After installing AVG it was around 200MB. Of course now it doesn't sit at an unusable, unresponsive desktop for 5 minutes on bootup anymore. Thanks Norton!
