Default 5.3GB of memory in use, and all I have open is uTorrent

Never seen such a thing before. 5.3GB of 6GB is in use, and the most any one application reports is 75MB, which is Utorrent. The memory didn't spike until after I started pulling down some torrents, and this is the first time I've connected to torrents since my recent OS reload and SSD install. Perhaps its related to that because I have disabled my page file as well as superfetch, but still I don't know why the system would take that much memory, especially when I can't find it reported anywhere.

Can anybody explain what might be happening here? Must be memory leak but I've not encountered one before. The only changes are noted above, other than than using a newer version of Utorrent than the one I was using previous to the reload.
