Are 'Memory Managers' really worth it?

I notice that a lot of adverts are cropping up advertising memory manager software which is supposed to stop memory leakages and also help your PC run faster.

Does anyone here use such and does it really improve performance.

I am using Win XP with 512mb of RAM on a notebook PC and also a desktop PC with 1gb of memory also on XP

Thanks in advance.

they are a total waste of time. I've tried several, and didn't notice any difference in performance at all.

Like many of these "manager" programs, the only things they will manage to do is make your wallet lighter.

Steer Clear.

My mind's made up. Thank you both.
