Try letting your virtual memory be controlled by your system.

How did you determine or what do you see that makes you think your laptop suddenly gets max/high RAM Usage?

 

If you are getting a popup message is there some reason you are not telling us what the message says or including a screenshot of the message?

Are you seeing an informational message like this:

 

Virtual Memory Minimum Too Low: Your system is low on virtual memory.  Windows is increasing the size of your virtual memory paging file.

 

If you do these things we will no more about your system and be able to tell how your paging file is set up:

 

If the system is a Dell what is the Service Tag Number?
If the system is an HP what is the serial number?
If the system is an Toshiba what is the serial number?
 
Describe your antivirus/antimalware environment.
 
Click Start, Run and in the box enter:
 
msinfo32
 
Click OK, and when the System Summary info appears, click Edit, Select All (Ctrl-A), Copy (Ctrl-C) and then paste (Ctrl-V) the information back here in your next reply.
 
For video device and driver information, expand the Components, click Display, click Edit, Select All, Copy and then paste the information back here.
 
There will be some personal information (like System Name and User Name), and whatever appears to be private information to you, just delete it from the pasted information.

Right click on task bar start Task Manager, click on processes tab, click on show processes from all users, click on the memory label at the top and sort from high to low, is TrustedInstaller running  and above say 250,000k?

 

If so you may have a hung update, if you go to explorer right click on C drive and click on properties do a disk cleanup followed by a a Clean up system Files, if the Cleanup System Files is available go ahead and run that. delete pretty much everything that lists in the resulting screen, once you run that reboot the PC. However it may be an hour before you get back to a desktop! But that should freeup memory.

 

You can also click on the up triangle on your task bar to the right and see if there are any programs you can life without there.
