There is a possibility that you could be infected which would explain the high memory usage, but as I'm still training to be a security analyst, I am unable to help you with that one.

Have you considered a RAM upgrade?

Thank you for your help, but are you really suggesting me to upgrade RAM? I think it's software that causes the problem, not hardware.

Let's see what, if any adware/junk may be running.

Download AdWareCleaner AdwCleaner Download to your desktop
1.Right-click on adwcleaner.exe and select Run As Administrator to launch the application.
2.Click on Delete button.
3.Confirm each time with OK.
4.Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart. Please post the content of that logfile in your reply.
Note: You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[Sn].txt as well - n is the order number.

I'm starting to think that HDD might be the main culprit.
