High memory usage

hello all, I found my PC really slow after a while of use, checking Task Manager found that my total percent of memory was at 99% while playing BF3, funny thing today also 2 friends had exactly the same problem, friend's PC system X79 SSD RAID nvidia 670 32gb, my other friend's PC intel 1356 HHD ati 6870 6gb trichannel and my system AMD 790fxt SSD ati 7970 16gb we all are running Windows 8 PRO 64bits fresh install.

I been searching google about this issue, some people claim is AMD CCC issue other say to disable superfetch also some posts about page file... all this tell me that is a memory leak under windows 8 and not a hardware related.

found this post at microsoft community Memory Usage in Windows 8 - Microsoft Community

So far only fix that work is full reboot
I will update with screenshots if I get the memory leak
