Just recently I have began to notice that on start up my computer is using 3GB out of the available 8 without starting up any programs. The CPU usage is constantly fluctuating from 25% up to 100% and nothing on the performance monitor is out of the norm nor using too much memory. Any thoughts on what could be causing this and is there anything else I need to post here to give more information on the topic.

Thanks!

and your anti virus

Tried that and got rid of 3 Trojans, my problem still persists :(. Can't open any games as they end up immediately in a "Not Responding" state according to Performance Manager and refuse to load.
