Memory usage in Windows 7, like all modern operating systems, is highly dynamic. It depends on how much memory you have, what processes are doing now, what they were doing recently, and more. Windows memory manager maintains control of memory usage, always with the goal of maximizing performance. To accomplish this goal it always tries to find some use for as much memory as possible, even if it is of trivial value. Unused memory is wasted memory.

Memory management in Windows 7 is extremely complex and highly efficient. Many people who do not understand this look at Task Manager and believe that something must be wrong. But the problem lies not with Windows but with our understanding of it. Yes, sometimes things do go wrong but it take quite a bit of knowledge to recognize this. I see nothing wrong with the numbers provided.

The best advice I can give you is to let Windows manage memory as it wishes. Interfering in this will almost always impair performance.

While that is quite true, you can however take steps if you have not already to minimize programs running in the background. Use msconfig and go to the Start Tab and uncheck most processes that are not Microsoft and not your antivirus program. Apply and restart the machine. You can also uninstall programs you never use, especially those that may have come with the machine.
Depending on your antivirus program some of the activity you are seeing may be the antivirus program itself simply monitoring or just checking for updates during idle times.
If you ever suspect something may have slipped past your antivirus program, simply scan with Malwarebytes to be sure.
If you want more information on processes running that may be using memory, install Process Explorer from Microsoft since it shows you more than Task Manager does.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
