Extremely high ram usage on idle (~96% of 8GB)

What's the RAM usage like if you boot into safe mode?

Run a malware scan with Malwarebytes or something similar.

i have nothing open. not discord not spotify just google drive sync, steam and blizzard launcher (nothing is updating) in the background which dont take up more than 200MB ram.

started happening yesterday after updating the graphics card drivers (which has nothing to do with memory usage as far as i know).

also printscreen doesnt work now for some reason, i have to open the snip and skectch app.

 

thanks a lot for reading and trying to fix my problems

 

specs:

i7 6700

asus h110M-A m.2

evga gtx 960 2gb

8gb single channel @2133mhz

Yes, Malwarebytes is solid, I'd trust it.

yea, malwarebytes is fine as long as you got it from a good location, also check what is running under task scheduler and what starts with the windows
