Another thing you can try is to disable all non-essential startup programs in msconfig / startup.
Make sure you keep any Anti-Virus and And-Malware programs enabled.

Here is a tutorial by Brink for a Clean Startup you can use for troubleshooting.
Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

You have 65 processes running and for me that is too many.
With normal usage I have apx. 50 processes running.

Lingvo.exe which is part of ABBYY Dictionary software uses a fair bit of your memory. Jack already mentioned uTorrent. Chrome is also using a lot. Do you have a lot of addons installed? Or did you just have a lot of tabs open?

I also think that Chrome is the main culprit.

Only 1 tab opened:

Can you give us another Process Explorer log from your clean boot setup please?

94,000 is fairly high for svchost and I would like to see what's running under it.
