When not running any apps or programs the memory runs at 30% - 40% percent and then cpu runs at 20% - 30% when i open any application those percentages skyrockets to 60% - 90%. In task manager it says i have over 111 background process which seems like alot to me. I built the computer around 2015 so I understands it's definitely older but still want to make sure before I upgrade or build another system. the specs are as follows CPU:Intel Core i7 4790 @ 3.60GHz , Ram: 16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 799MHZ, Motherboard: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. SABERTOOTH Z87 (SOCKET 1150), hard drives: 223GB KINGSTON KINGSTON SV300S3 SCSI Disk Device, 931GB Seagate ST1000

I have built three pcs so i have some experience in building ok but definitely don't understand a lot and have little knowledge on the software side. Thanks for any and all help and tips
