Memory Allocation Alert raised yet VM is well below 50%. VC is reporting wrong

I have vSphere 4.0 Cluster. THis is a second i installed for a client. And in both cases I have an issue with performance graph in VC shows memory of the VM ONLY CERTAIN TIMES to be close to 100% utilized which raises alerts offcours and emails me. I check on the VM and each time inside the VM only 40-50% is used yet the VM graph in performance tab on the VM shows close to a 100%.

Server are Win 2003 Stnd 32 bit

and also SBS Server 2003 I have seen it for. Again its not constant but it happens a lot. I opened a thread before a month ago with no answer in different section I am hoping someone will have answer here

Attached is a screenshot of the VMs performance graph in VC and its task manager open. As you can see its not making much sense.
