I'm sorry, but a new problem has arisen. We now cannot get ADSL sync over the line although our telephones are working. You know what it's like trying to get repairmen over Easter so we have to wait on the phone comapny, which looks like it may be ten days or more. So, for the time being, we have no internet connection at all (I'm writing this from the next-door neighbour's machine).
When we have connection again, I'll continue with this if that's okay? In the meantime, thank you to all who responded and for all your great suggestions. It's appreciated.

Normal pattern is that after half a day running ´physical memory´ reaches 99%. I cannot reset but to reboot. System is up-to-date. Running AVG, no malware etc. By killing off processes does not reduce RAM.
You've got a memory leak in some program. Probably a third party program. If you use IE it could also be an IE addon.

Here was our answer to find the process and to correct problem. Note: disabling did not disable use of wireless:
1. To know if the utility will cause a problem, open Task manager and select the Processes tab.
2. On the Menu, choose View/Select Columns to add two more columns to the view.
a. Select the Memory/Commit Size and Handles selections
3. Next, click on the Handles column heading to sort by Handles
4. At bottom left, choose Show processes from all users.
5. A file called BCMWLTRY.EXE will gradually increase by 10’s and eventually appear at the top of the Handles list, if it is in a “run-away” situation.
6. To stop this from happening, open Administrative Tools/Services from Control Panel.
7. Find the DW WLAN TRAY SERVICE and disable it.
8. Reboot the computer. Recheck the processes tab in Task Manager. The BCMWLTRY.EXE file should not be listed.
