My answer my seem pretty simple compared to the rest of these guys but it worked for me. My "system" process was around 60,000K too. All I did was tell windows update to stop notifying me about installing a certain update that I had downloaded.It went down straight away to 215K :)
If this works for you please spread as I know alot of people are still struggling with the issue.
Thank you

Hi,
I had the same problem with 'System' process using 85Mb consistently.
I installed process explorer and went through some of the SVCHost services and stopping them, still no change in RAM use.
I also tried the comment above by going to Control Panel>Security Center and then clicked on Resources>Change the Way SC Alerts me and unticked all the alerts. Still no change.
I uninstalled AVG and System Process usage drops to 212k.
I guess AVG hides its memory usage within System services rather than as one of its own.
Hope this helps people as I spent all day trying to identify the culprit.

Please start your own topic
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic that is almost a year old since the last post it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system.
Thank you for your cooperation.
