RAM 40% When nothing is running

My Laptop has only 2GB of RAM
My Laptop's running wierd lately , RAM just kept going high
I've searched all ways to decrease memory usage
some of them are :
- Cleaning Registry and Temporary files using CCleaner
- Disabling some startup programs
- Uninstalling Unecessary softwares

Now there's nothing running on my taskbar except for Intel Graphics Driver
And Yet , when I gone to the task manager it puts me up with a 800 MB , thats 40% memory usage , turning into 75% opening Chrome
Is this the way it was supposed to be?
There are a suspicious Process running on the task manager , the ones in the name of csrss.exe with no description , and the Internet believes that this can potentially be a Trojan

Please Help , Any solutions would be awesome

Open Task manager --> Processes tab and check the list of processes running in the background.
Some process is eating up your RAM.

-Which Antivirus are you using?

hmm........
How about disabling MalwareBytes and checking the memory usage.
That could possibly be the reason.
Turning off Aero might also help.

So what - you cannot save the other 60% or more for a rainy day. The more RAM the system uses, the better it is,

Open the Resource Monitor > Memory tab. That gives you a good picture. See picture below as an example.
