This morning, I woke up to my computer having higher than normal CPU (20~70% it fluctuates a lot) and physical memory (50~60%) even while idle or with only Google Chrome opened. I checked my programs, thinking that maybe a new unwanted program installed itself and found something called ToggleMark. I uninstalled that and tried to delete its program files, but one of the files would not delete itself because Windows said it was still open in another program/window, even though it wasn't. I wasn't sure what to do after that, so I just left it alone.

 

Then, I ran a quick scan with Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal and it found Win64/Alureon to be infected. It partially removed it. I also ran a scan with Malwarebytes, but that came up with nothing. I am sort of at a loss right now, I don't know what to do. Why is my CPU and physical memory higher than usual and is it because of Trojan:Win64/Alureon? Do I need to download any other programs to help me remove this? I'm not very computer-savvy :( Thanks for your help!

Update: I also ran Temporary File Cleanup and now the CPU usage seems normal (less than 10%) but my physical memory is at 50~% 

I'm wondering if that physical memory is okay? What is the optimal physical memory percentage? And if this is too high, how can I lower it? Thanks!
