Question : Do you oftely use software or games that are memory intensive? If so, Windows preloads them in memory so they load faster. That's the only explanation I have. The others will probably have more ideas though.

Looks like there are many unwanted programs running in the background. Open msconfig and disable all the startup items and then restart your computer. Then check resource monitor or task mgr.
