I understand that there is a high memory usage on your PC.

 

Common causes of slow system performance:
Not enough free disk space or disk errors.
Applications that require a lot of system resources.
Too many tasks running at the same time.
Nonessential graphic features.
Not enough memory.
Overheating due to intensive graphic applications or dust in vents.
Running multiple instances of anti-virus software.
