For some reason recently, I've been seeing my ram usage go all the up to the mid 90% within either 1-2 hours, even when I've been having the same programs open (usually chrome and firefox), haven't installed anything new since the incident. So I don't understand why my memory usage has been going up so high (40 to 90) I have an i7 4770k and 16 gigs of ram.

Try clicking alt, ctrl, delete at the same time and open the task manager. Look at the memory column and see what program is using your memory and report back here.

I just usually use chrome and firefox, those would be the highest ones, otherwise I didn't do anything different. I updated killer networking suite and I'm going to see if that did it.

If a program becomes corrupted it can be using a lot of memory in the background.

Please do the following and post the version of Windows you are running.

 

Press the Windows key R key at the same time to open the Run box. Copy and paste or type in winver, then press Enter.  This will show the version of Windows 10 you have running.
