3) Set page file to 1024-1024 on your Raid 0 partition, disable any others. Do not set it to 1024-2048 you want a static number.
4) Reboot.
5) See if it's fixed.

Notes:
-> Do not disable the page file. It sickens me that people still suggest that.
-> Windows is not actually using 2GB of RAM. It's probably using about 700MB with 1.3GB cached. It will release that RAM whenever you need it. Your RAM usage is normal.
Well written, great post.

@OP ^ Excellent recommendations.

Doubt deleting prefetch will do anything for this issue.
