When I turn on my desktop (Windows 7 SP1), I often find 2 or 3 GB of memory is already occupied by MySQL processes. I don't care about how much memory a database requires, if it actually runs some queries, but I do, if it's an app I even don't start myself yet. For that matter, I barely use MySQL barring when I develop some web apps in my local environments.
So is it possible to stop this gluttony? I tried to remove MySQL from my startup group via
msconfig, but couldn't find its name over there.
Here is extra info.
