I just realised why my computer getting so slower. I have 8 GB of RAM and usage of kernel is 4,5 GB and the process called Installer taking 1,5 GB, and all that with only finder running! Do I need downgrade OS? Because Activity Monitor says processes taking out 7,99 out of 8 GB of RAM. I really need help.
