    check your Task Manager once in awhile for a process called Runtime Broker.

    it should be at about 2 MB usage (on a 32 bits machine, i don't know about 64 bits).

    if it's a lot more then you probably are using a Metro App that is 'leaking'.
    clock Metro apps/tiles are known for this behavior.

    uninstall one at a time, then log out, log in, check your Task Manager after 20 minutes of use or so.

    rinse and repeat if needed.
