This is (usually) a pretty important Windows process that allows other applications to run properly.
It is likely a 3rd party app is causing the excessive memory use, but in order to diagnose which one, Microsoft task manager alone isn't up to the job.
Resource monitor may help but ideally you should use Process Explorer which can be downloaded for free from Microsoft here.

It could also be a case of a malware infection, but let's consider the more benign first before referring you to malware removal.
