Thats the thing, Task Manager does not show any process using up high amounts of memory even in the Resource Monitor.

I had already disabled Window Media Player Network Sharing before I made this thread, that did not fix the issue.

Go down to Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service and double click on it and Stop it and then disable it.

It's used for when you transfer media between your Xbox 360 and your PC, so if you do use a 360 for this, then set the service to "manual" if you want.
Strange, i'm sharing over my private home network the "Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service" and it does take me 5000kb only!

I suspect more something running in the backgroung like an online scanner common to firewalls/Av software....or quickscan when updates virus definition....

Apparently I'm also having issues with my Physical Memory, it just shot up to 70% and then down to 40%, but that is still really high for a computer that only has a browser open....

Look at Task Manager and select all the columns related to MEMORY. Sort (descending) by either working-set or total memory and see where it's all going.

And make sure you click the "Show processes from all users" check box. By default you only see maybe 1/3 of what's actually running in the task list. The thing that's taking up memory might not be listed by default.

Also on the performance tab, click the resource monitor, then the memory tab and you ca then sort all processes by memory there too, it'll give yo ua little more information.

I posted my system specs in the first post.

Also, the main problem is that Task Manager does not show any process thats taking up a lot of memory or CPU, thats the main reason why I am so frustrated and I am forced to restart my computer any time it happens.

Someone please provide some assistance, I would really appreciate it.

Did you "Show processes from all users"?

Did you check out the memory tab in the resource monitor?
