High Memory use without processes

Since last week my PC is really slow. After check some things, virus, spyware etc. no solution. Searching on google get no useful results.

My pc has standard 4 GB of memory en normaly 1,x in use. Now around 3,8 GB in use allways. If watching taskmanager don't see the memory is using by a process.

I make a few printscreens from the problem.

I use to analyze the memory use Mapmap.exe and Poolmon.exe, tools from MS.
