CleanMem, the only memory optimizer that really works !
from what i´ve learned, all those RAM-optimizers are just BS.
they delete the Prefetch-cache from memory which although gives you more memory, doesn´t improve the performance at all.
on the contrary, since they delete the "Prefetch-cache", you actually lose performance....
the only program that really does something useful is Cleanmem:
"Cleanmem is very small as it doesn't need to do much. First off Cleanmem doesn't clean the memory from the processes itself! It asks Windows to do that. When the program starts up it grabs a list of running processes. It then grabs the ID of each process and calls the Windows API EmptyWorkingSet for each processes, Cleanmem of course checks the ignore list and skips those processes. Then Windows cleans the process, and once all the processes have been cleaned Cleanmem closes itself.
Well that's the part that seems to freak some people out, if the memory is being cleaned then the process itself will suffer! the memory will be pushed to the hard drive! the world will end! And guess what they are wrong. So let me explain why. The API call only removes memory no longer being used by the process. It doesn't touch memory in use. Here is an example from a visual basic programming stand point"

CleanMem works very well, i´ve used it for 2 years on XP Vista & W7.
it´s FREE, so try it....

I remember using this with vista 32 then I installed more ram and updated win7 64 never saw the point of using it after that.
If you have got limited ram then I would recommend this over any other ram optimizer.
I agree, this works. Outstanding little program, frees up a small amount of memory without swapping it back to the HDD. Works well for computers that need it. I have an older laptop that I gave one of my kids, this is a BOON to a system that doesn't support more the 1gb RAM.
It is safe, free and it works.
