Computer uses more memory the processes

Hello.
So for the past 2 weeks I've noticed that my PC uses a ton of ram which causes issue when gaming. I have looked into my processes running in my Task Manager and can't find a reason for my PC to use as much RAM as it does.


My processes running as of 2:57 4/4/2016:



Ram Usage:


I have run a malware check with Malwarebytes and I have also been running CCleaner in hopes of solving my issue.
But from my experience of having malware hogging my gpu & cpy before, I have never had any kind of issues with my ram.

Specs related to the issue:
- Windows 7
- RAM: 16 GB

Any help is appreciated to attempt to resolve this issue.

  1. I'm not seeing what the problem is. You are running GTA V, Vegas Pro, and Photoshop, and you still have 6GB of RAM free. First, the programs you have running should take up a very large chunk of RAM. Second, you still have plenty of RAM free.
    Perhaps you could describe the issues you are having. You might try closing the extra programs you are using when you game if you are having performance issues.

    I believe that issue is appearing once again:


    And right now I'm barely running anything at all:

    It still looks like you are running a lot of stuff. You also have plenty of free RAM.
    You might try checking the box "Show processes from all users" on the Windows Task Manager. That should enable you to see everything that is running.
