Question Memory usage keeps increasing past 90% no matter what I do


Jan 27, 2019
This started recently maybe a couple months ago. I noticed everything just responding slower and stuttering. Soon I see that memory usage is regularly around 99% and since then I tried various solutions including:

-closing programs and tabs etc
-increasing virtual memory
-scanning for virus
-disabling antivirus
-changing browser settings
-disabling superfetch/sysmain
-regedit changes
-scanning for hardware changes

Nonpaged memory is never high so apparently its not a driver issue?? The only thing that has actually had any effect so far is restarting, or using CleanMem. But those are just temporary and I'm not sure how good even CleanMem is considering how quickly the memory goes back to 60-70% after being brought down to around 50%. I read somewhere that its "supposed" to take more and more memory over time, but clearly its not useful if it reaches such levels where eventually everything slows down and you can't even perform basic functions????
