 You posted in the Windows 10 forum, but the Task Manager listing doesn't look like Windows 10.  You also said your PC is using a lot of memory with nothing started, but I see several things running in what you posted, Firefox being at the top of the list, and Chrome is there too with 14 entries.  Please clarify.

 By the way, Windows will cache memory and use it when needed; this will result in the Performance tab of Task Manager showing a lot of memory being used when a lot of that is in the cache, ready for use when needed.

Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

Looks like he has the resource manager up from Windows 10. But as Niweg has said you have firefox and chrome opened which looks to be using more than 50% of your memory right off the bat.
