Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):

p22004369.gif

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot. You will see the following prompt:

p22004371.gif

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

p22004372.gif

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the p22004370.gif button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

You have Avast AV and Norton Internet Security installed...I suggest completely uninstalling each and then using the Windows Firewall and Microsoft Security Essentials in lieu of both.  Then check the CPU usage.

 

Avast Uninstall Utility

 

Norton Removal Tool

 

Security Essentials Download

 

You have outdated versions of Java installed.  Please see Why should I remove older versions of Java from my system - http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/remove_olderversions.xml .

- A memory of 3 GB is - IMO - not too much.

- Make up your mind. Use either Firefox or Chrome but not both at the same time. Both programs use lots of memory.

- Install PcWinTech's Cleanmem. It reduces memory usage every 15 minutes. And let it collapse the filecache as well.

- Run GSmartControl and tell us how many pink/red lines show up in the "Attributes" tab.

When you ran the Malwarbytes scan was there any malware found?

 

If there was please post the Malwarebytes log.

 

To find your Malwarebytes log,download mbam-check.exe from here and save it to your desktop.
 
To open the log double click on mbam-check.exe on your desktop.  Copy and paste the log in your topic.
 

 

When I had Windows 7 64-bit it was running just fine on 3GB of RAM, I don't see any problem with that.  

 

I also don't see any problem using either of the two browsers.  Firefox has a higher appetite for resources though.

 

 

You have Adobe Reader 9.1 and Java 6 installed.  Both of these are outdated and should be updated, Adobe Reader XI and Java 8.

 

The following is an explanation why you do not want to have more than one antivirus installed.  There is nothing wrong with either of the antivirus programs you have installed.  You have paid for the Norton antivirus, so I would be inclined to use it.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Using more than one anti-virus program is not advisable. Why? The primary concern with doing so is due to Windows resource management and significant conflicts that can arise especially when they are running in real-time protection mode simultaneously. Even if one of them is disabled for use as a stand-alone on demand scanner, it can affect the other and cause conflicts. Anti-virus software components insert themselves deep into the operating systems core where they install kernel mode drivers that load at boot-up regardless of whether real-time protection is enabled or not. Thus, using multiple anti-virus solutions can result in kernel mode conflicts causing system instability, catastrophic crashes, slow performance and waste vital system resources. When actively running in the background while connected to the Internet, each anti-virus may try to update their definition databases at the same time. As the programs compete for resources required to download the necessary files this often can result in sluggish system performance or unresponsive behavior.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

- The words "High CPU Usage" leads me to believe that you've got particular "Windows Update" problem, that has been nagging many Win 7 users since the 2nd quarter of this year. But luckily there's a solution for that.
