RAM usage too high in idle ?

Researching over the forums for this issue

Hi all, have this problem for a while now. I have 16GB of ram and usage is extremely high while PC is in idle. 99% ram usage and 70-80% quite often.When i start the computer it's fine and then it starts slowly to increase to as i said 70-80 and finally 99%. Computer doesn't lag or lacks of performance even when 99% of the ram is used ?! If you know how to fix that s..t pls aa and that happens in win 10 and win 7 also
I checked task manager to see which process uses that much memory but nothing appeared to be out of order. Could it be some kind of virus ?

How did you measured the RAM usage?

Task manager is the first place where i check for memory usage. Task manager>Performance. Second is with Core Temp program where there is a option that shows the ram usage.

Post a screenshot of Task Manager - Performance tab. Often the problem is not a process at all. In many cases it is the non paged pool.

So this thing happens today
Period of about 30 minutes.

URLCrypt.to - Keeping your links safe

15 minutes 78%
25 minutes 97%
30 minutes max
Some fellas said why should you even care about this problem when there is not performance hit at 99% usage?
Because irritates me too much that is why
