How much RAM should CE be using?

Title. I just noticed that CE is using almost 350mb of RAM (Windows 8.1). I'm not sure if this has always been that way, or if there's something strange going on. It seems like a lot for what it's doing, but I'm not an expert. Thanks in advance for any insight.

Hi, Jerod. Thanks for writing. You're right. That RAM usage seems high. Can you look to see which process(es) specifically is/are using that much? Also, can you tell me the version of CE that you're currently running? Thanks!

Thanks for the response. I'm currently running V. 5.2.106. The process is CovenantEyes.exe. The other CE processes appear to be using normal amounts of RAM. I have a screenshot, but it doesn't look like I can attach it here.

I just tried ending the CovenantEyes.exe task in task manager and then restarting the program. It came back up fine using only 4.6mb RAM. So that's a fix, but I'd still like to avoid it happening again, or at least make you guys aware if it's a memory leak or some such. Let me know what you need from me.
