Windows 7: Constant 90% Ram usage

Constant 90% Ram usage

My computer has recently been alot slower than normal, it is loading things extremely slow, and programs often chrash, even though its a beefy pc. I figured out that my ram was the problem. The ram usage can sometimes hit 100% even though i've closed almost all processes in the taskmanager and only chrome is open. If i restart my computer, my ram usage is around 50% but increases to 90% in less than 30 minutes. I have really no idea what to do, since i have 8GB ram installed;( Can anyone help me? I know that chrome often uses alot of ram, but i've tried completely shutting down all chrome processes, and i didn't work.

Open Resource Monitor and switch to the Memory tab, sort by Working set, expand the list a bit but make sure the chart below is visible. Take a screenshot and post here please.

Performance tab of Task Manager too please as LMiller asked, there are a few more info in that page missing here.

And I got no idea what's taking your RAM, the list is clean. All I can think of is, do you have any Virtual PC software? VirtualBox, VMware etc?
