+1 It's the most likely cause. Try disabling or uninstalling ESET and see if the problem changes.

I think i figured out the problem, i unchecked every program and non-microsoft service that starts up with windows, did a restart and so far the memory is not climbing. I'll list the services and programs i had, so if someone in the future will have this problem they can try this.

Services:
AMD External Events Utility
ServiceLayer (app for Nokia phones)
Steam Client Service

Programs:
Daemon Tools Lite
razerhid application
PCSuite (nokia)
Windows Sidebar
Catalyst Control Center
fortemanager (LG monitor app)


EDIT: nope, my memory is still climbing to full the more i use the computer
