msmptng (probably MSMPENG) is Microsoft Security Essentials. Since you want to keep Norton, uninstall MSE.

mbamservice is Malwarebytes AntiMalware.

svchost is most likely the problem. Google it. There are plenty of complaints of high memory & CPU usage. Several different fixes to try.

High RAM usage is not necessarily a bad thing, indeed in some circumstances it is a good thing. Unused RAM is just wasted space. It is meant to be used..

If everything is working well and CPU System Idle Process is hovering around 95-99% then leave well alone.

This is your 3rd post about the same thing. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del, then click Task Manager. Click on the Processes tab, find 'Memory' at the top of the column & click on it, that will sort the processes by memory usage. You may have to click twice to bring the highest users at the top. Post back which processes are hogging the most memory.
