Open task manager, select the Processes tab.

The mem usage there isn't the size of the VM however, which is probably why you couldn't add everything up. Fix this with view->Select Columns.

Select both Page Faults Delta and Virtual Memory Size, then ok the dialog. This will add two new columns to the processes list.

The page faults delta will give you an indication as to which programs are suffering from swapping.

The virtual memory size will give you an indication as to how much programs have requested, as opposed to how much they're actually using. Any program with excessive VM usage may well be suffering from a memory leak.

Any views, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. They don't necessarily represent those of my employer (BlackBerry).
