    My ram and cpu usage is very high

    Hey guys my cpu and ram usage is pretty high when im not even doing anything.

    its on swedish but next to CPU is Memory.

    i found something called poolmon in windows kits where i could see if there was a driver that was using all the cpu and ram but i cant figure out how to open it -.-'

    Not using Windows Defender myself to check, as it could be doing something at the moment, you say Defender is always using this amount of RAM or CPU ? High usage for this specific Antimalware would be much higher then that percentage. As far as what else it could be at the moment i can not see the entire list, but Chrome is using more RAM and Spotify is close to Defender's RAM usage.

    Also check the details tab in Task manager, give you better idea of what is running and using both CPU and RAM. Check programs that startup with the PC, in startup tab in Task Manager, try to look and see ones that mention High usage, try to disable if not needed to run at startup as many still keep running after that.

    I would run a full scan with Defender, also try at the run command type mrt.exe. As far as Avast being better, i would think so. Defender alone is not too good, in combination with say Malwarebytes free would be better protection.
    Rule out any virus by doing so, can use Malwarebytes also for now for a scan of system.
