Symptoms:

 

I had -100% memory usage on boot up but was intermittent - unknown if my cleaning has fixed it as hard to pinpoint the cause.

 

I also noticed when Chrome browser is started it uses 100% CPU for about a second, then it goes back to regular levels.

 

Avast (full version up to date) installed (finds nothing)

 

Running Adwcleaner it now finds one entry, which i can not  get rid of and was wondering if its Avast related?

Ok.

Speccy is a system analysing soft. But you don't need to use it if you know you RAM storage.

Is you ram saturated when computer is starting and down after or is you ram always full ?

it winds up to between 100% and 90% (more common) at start up then dies back down to around 45% usage after 5 mins. (background only stuff running no apps or browsers open) 

 

Not sure what's happening with opening Chrome Browser and why that should cause 100% memory use for a couple of seconds If i open that.

 

I recently turned on view all users to see what was running in the process's there were two exe of svchost hogging lots of memory for that period.

One of the exe stopped using the high memory usage and seemed to be the culprit. 

 

I was also having sever memory issues with Avast a while back when it was performing updates. But that seems to have subsided.

I think you have too many apps starting on system start.

I will show you how to unactive apps on startup if you don't know how to do it.

Power management: I've tried lots of combinations of power settings and resets but to no result.

Ok, I don't think this is very good... Is your computer restarted correctly after the BSOD ?
