Windows 7: High physical memory, over 80-90% please help

15 Nov 2015   #1

Windows 7, 64 bit
High physical memory, over 80-90% please help

hi guys over the pasr 2 weeks i've been having a problem, my physical memory is running aroun 80-96% when im just sitting at the desktop with nothing open at all. my computer is running very slow and ive done 3 virus scans and found nothing that is causing this problem. I have a very nice gaming computer with:

8gigs Ram
Nvidia 780X
and an i-7

i have multiple processes running over 200k of ram which is very odd, my processes tab shows these:

msiexec.exe - 500,000k
taskhost.exe - 460,000k
taskhost.exe - 400,000k
cmd.exe - 390,000k
conhost.exe - 380,000k
ctfmon - 350,000k
presentationhost.exe - 320,000k

and sometimes when i look at my processes it will say i have iexplorer.exe and notepad.exe running but i havent opened them up and they will be running over 200,000k.

is this a virus? is it something i can fix? please help!
