Freeing up RAM

  Fateful Shadow 10:20 05 Jul 2003

Does anybody know where I can download a program that allows me to have more free RAM?

I think the programs that do this make Windows attribute a lot of RAM to the program for a second or two, therefore freeing up the RAM. Correct me if I'm wrong...which I probably am.

Anyone know any good, rteliable ones?

Cacheman click here also tweaks your whole system memory set up...

Also turn off startup progs you don't need by typing in RUN/ 'msconfig'.

As above, disable start-up items you don't use click here

Thanks to everyone! I've used msconfig before, and I've got my startup items down to 2! I also tried the services.msc thing and I have disabled a few. I tried the software, but I find it a bit annoying and hard to use (could just be me though!)

Does anybody else know a reliable RAM free-er that is free lol?! (If that makes any sense!)

Cacheman as mentioned above...

So your using XP?

How much RAM do you actually have?

Thanks to everyone!

I've decided to go for a program called Freeram that my friend mentioned to me a few minutes ago. In answer to Powerless' question, I have 192MB RAM.

At the moment, I am running AOL 8.0, Sygate Personal firewall, and Freeram. The amount of RAM I have free is 69MB. Is that normal?

Hold that thought...Freeram just ran and I now have 98MB ram. Better or worse lol?
