Windows 7 ultimate x64
Windows 7 laptop running very ram usage please help

I have a Samsung rv510 laptop running windows 7 x64, 3 gb ram
It has been running perfectly for months, but over the last couple of weeks it has started to run incredibly slow. I have updated the bios i have done virus and malware checks and all that looks great, i have switched off anything that doesnt need to be running but after about 5 mins after startup the ram usage shoots up to 95% and the computer runs at a crawl.
Can anyone please help i am running out of ideas.
