Memory utilization above 90%.....Malware?

Unread postby B0ssalien2810 » February 24th, 2014, 4:46 am

Hello Everyone,

I came across a very strange issue. We have two laptops different models with 4GB RAM. The memory utilization for both these laptops run constantly at more than 90%. When you put these laptops in sleep mode and turn it back on, the memory utilization drops for sometime and then slowly regains it back to above 90%.

Task manager did not reveal any process for such hike in memory. Took out all programs from start-up without any success. Suspecting this could be a malware, I even ran Malwarebytes, Hijackthis, online eset scans, trend micro scan and still couldn't find any infection.

Can anyone suggest something that can be done to get the memory utilization down.

Thank you.
