Windows 7: Almost all memory used up during and after extraction or installation

Judging by your first pictures, you seem like you run a lot of things at once so that's why I'm suggesting you look into your startup items; if you only load what you NEED to load at the startup, that will definitely reduce some of that memory. Keep us posted with that picture of the processes list.

You can see your startup items with this method:

1. Windows key + r to load a run window
2. Type in Msconfig
3. Look at the startup tab
4. Don't uncheck anything that you KNOW you need for example: your internet card/adapter, a virus scanner, etc. Some people might go against that but it's what I do.

Task Manager - performance tab, gives an overview of the memory situation that is simply not available anywhere else. There is no particular value that is important. I would really like to see all of them. In many case individual values may be reasonable but together they indicate a problem. Without this overview we are pretty much in the dark as to the true situation.

Many people immediately dive into the process list. But to me this is premature. By doing this you can easily become sidetracked and spend hours searching in the wrong direction. I have seen this on forums many times.

I took a screenie this time, no worries.

I may have some unnecessary items there, but i sanitize startup items regularly.

Here are the screenies:

During:
During - Imgur

After:
After - Imgur

I took process list, performance, ResMon screenies and Services too for good measure.
Also, someone wanted a Private(KB) sort so did that too

This would work best on this Forum. Many don't like going off site to see screen shots.

Really? But it's just imgur, not a shady site. It was easier to just drag-and-drop 26 images in an organized 2-albums view instead of selecting them through a file explorer to be all in the same basket.

Here they are then, but personally, i think it looks messy:

For starters I would uninstall AVG and use a much lighter virus scanner, pretty much this: Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows

I also recommend just discarding the fences because you really don't need that program to organize your desktop or folders - it's taking up memory.

You have a optimizerpro.exe running.
That may be causing problems as Win 7 doesn't need optimizers, registry cleaners, etc.
Can you completely remove or disable that and see how things look?
In my searches for Optimizer Pro, many sites listed are unsafe according to WOT.

I didn't see where this was suggested, so if you haven't tried a Clean Startup, give this a try...

I might give MSE a shot, AVG's been bugging me for a while, but force of habit, i guess.

I use only three fences and I have no issues like the described one during normal operation.

Didn't even know I had it. Must've been sneak-installed alongside something.
I use only Advanced System Care for cleaning, it seems to do the job and has a slew of useful tools with it (the uninstall tool is really really nice), so i keep it, but it's closed most of the time, unless I'm scanning at the moment.

EDIT: I'm just going to go on a mass-uninstall spree, I see i have tons of useless guff left on my PC.

I'll try that one out later, right now I got some other business that requires the PC working properly.
It's time-consuming to replicate this, and renders the PC almost unusable.
