    It could be a printer control program or multiple such programs that are on in the background eating up your RAM.

    Check the task manager's Processes tab for programs that are using a lot of memory and have a name that matches your printer brand (Like if your printer is a Lexmark, look for 'Lxmrkxj900' or something like that).

    Close this program and see if the performance improves. Open 'Run...' from the Start menu and enter Services.msc to disable the printer control program(s) from starting.

    Good luck!
