Memory Leak Problem

I have started to face a problem from a while, what happens is that the Performance monitor shows a lot of memory usage which does not add up in the processes tab. I suspect a memory leak and have tried doing some things like a network change from registry but that did not work. DO u guys know how can i fix it?.

chrome does use a lot, but that's too much. run a antimalware, a firewall and a antivirus. also a startup scan with the antivirus.

 

and just for fun:

Can you give a bit more information about your system?

If you open Resource Monitor and go to the memory tab, sort by what is using the most memory and what program/service is it? Sometimes Resource Monitor will show up more processes than Task manager.

My system is a Asus FX553VD (i7-7700HQ, GTX 1050, 8GB 2400 Mhz) and if it helps, i usually don't turn it off and it is usually on for like weeks at a time.

 

Resource Monitor show kind of a similar story.
