No application is running but still the performance is very slow. When I open task manager, I see that more than 3 GB of memory is used.
 
Hi,

If you're using Windows 10 this is actually a know glitch unfortunately, but if you're not do run a complete virus/malware scan since it can be a virus related concern.

Here's a link you can use for a complete guide and tools:

If all these will not work your last option would be to reinstall Windows.
