I've been facing this problem for almost 5 days. I'm not sure whether it's a Windows system problem or a virus infection, so please help me.


When I boot the computer my RAM usage starts at ~20% then keeps raising until it reaches 95% after 2 hours approx. for literally no reason. I don't have any programs, games, browsers running, only Windows processes & services running in the background. Also my CPU usage used to be at 50% with nothing running, now it's fixed after I disabled Font Cache Services. By the way I've read a lot of topics in here looking for a solution but nothing worked. 


  • These are the programs I scanned my computer with: 

AdwCleaner, Hitman Pro, Malwarebytes, RKill, ZemanaAntiMalware, RogueKiller, ComboFix 


  • My computer specifications:

Windows 7 Ultimate Service Pack 1, 32bit 3GHz CPU, 2.00GB RAM


I have attached a Task Manager screenshot, I hope it will help identify the problem. https://imgur.com/a/TaCgQfd
