If you want a high quality cleaning program, get CCleaner.
CCleaner is great for cleaning all unnessecary information and unused registry keys.

TweakRam is definetly too buggy for my liking. Plus I dislike the interface (Not that it matters)

RAM does not need to be freed, if you have enough of it. Even then, it shouldn't need to be freed if your OS is working properly and using the paging file (virtual memory) the way it's supposed to.

Anyone who knows how ram is accessed, would know how utterly unnecessary this is. Ram is not much like a hard drive in the way it is accessed.

#33: "I am not installing any of these programs anymore-I have 3 so far that did NOT remove what they installed. Causing all kinds of problems- with the uninstalls."

Every time you install software, there are changes to Windows' registry. If these changes bother you, there are a few things you can do... In XP you can use ERUNT, in Vista & 7, set a Restore Point, either way you back up the registry. If you don't like what you just installed, restore the registry back to the way it was.

In XP 32 & Vista 32 [not sure about 64 bit] you can run RegShot to monitor & save a list of any changes. InstallWatch Pro is a free app that goes further, & works in XP & Vista 32 (maybe more versions of Windows as well?). It's more work than restoring a backup of your registry, since you have to edit the registry manually to get rid of anything, but it gives you a record should you want to uninstall a week, or month, or year later when your registry backup is no longer good.

If you don't mind the work, Universal Extractor expands the files in many set-up programs, often allowing you to skip the actual installation routine, where BTW most registry changes happen. What I often do in XP Pro SP3 32 is use Universal Extractor, then do a registry backup with ERUNT, then take a snapshot using RegShot, then start & close the extracted app. Taking a 2nd snapshot & clicking the Compare button in RegShot tells me what changes the program itself made to the registry. If the changes aren't excessive, & the app works OK, cool -- if not I can either run the install, or choose to not use the app & restore the backup.

If your software is operating properly, memory is released after the program's closed. Not every app works properly, & while memory leaks [consuming more & more memory resources] & such are considered more serious bugs, usually given top priority, it happens. So, if you have RAM problems because of misbehaving software, TweakRAM may help -- if you don't, likely it won't. Please remember that most of this sort of RAM problem results from software, not your PC, & rarely if ever Windows, so talking about how a perfectly running PC/laptop works is sort of irrelevant.

Lots of folks quip: "Buy more RAM". It's very often Not That Easy. If you run 32 bit Windows, the amount Windows will use is capped. Depending on your motherboard & bios, you top out between 2 & 3 gig. Some desktop motherboards have 2 slots, or 4, or more -- if they're filled, you have to start from scratch replacing rather than adding to RAM. Laptops usually have a door on the bottom to add special sticks of RAM. If you can add RAM, the next question is what brands/models are compatible with my PC/laptop. You have to worry about compatibility with the motherboard, whether you're replacing or adding RAM, & when you add RAM, it has to be compatible with what you've already got. How do you know if RAM's compatible? Scour the web for user reports... Motherboard makers do list RAM they've tested a board with, BUT, by the time that motherboard hits the shelves usually that exact RAM is no longer available, & they don't go back & check the newer RAM you can actually buy.

RAM has different timing & voltage requirements, & some have heatsinks that may/may not physically fit your PC. Current RAM stores it's rated timing specs, but you may have 3 or 4 sets [1 for each bus speed], & those may/may not work with your motherboard. Voltage settings often have to be set manually. The bios determines how many RAM settings you can adjust, & this varies by motherboard brand/model.

To follow up to those complaining about us not testing, I generally always test the software and post my findings. No need to this time been there, done that it is way too dangerous to say the least.

I appreciate all of the good software offerings on this site and look forward to testing more.

But I'm not going to cause a mess again by testing this software again and others like it. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me......

I too found this program and others just like it junk and a waste of time. Last time it left bits and pieces scattered about my computer after uninstalling.

Anyone uninstalling, please try http://www.revouninstaller.com/. Revo uninstaller has a deep cleaning uninstaller that will almost always remove all of the junk left behind in your system. Best of all it is free. Please use it to uninstall this software and save yourself some grief. http://www.revouninstaller.com/

I did not download this since I already have good programs that do all it does. I am tired of hearing the same things over and over again. Under normal conditions these programs are not needed but memory intensive programs will hog and keep ram, just ask any hard core gamer. I am at home alot due to illness and when I stream shows from, say hulu, especially after playing games, the streams don't run right. I clear the memory and they play like a dream.
Beginners should be cautious and not use a program if they can't get their computer out of a sticky situation. I've had this computer for almost 4 years and I had to reinstall windows once, because I'm a software junkie and no matter what windows OS your running, installing and uninstalling programs will degrade ALL windows os' after time.
Then again when I first learned the computer languages, it was basic, extended basic, assembly and binary. I still write programs in binary for sh**s and giggles sometimes.

I am not associated with Elcor, or any other software comnpany. I have been using version 6.2 on XP Pro since last given away on GAOD. I have enough ram that I don't notice any effect there, and if that were the only feature, I would not bother with it. However, this software has several features I find invaluable with the way I use my computers. (We tend to forget that not everyone uses their computers the way we as individuals do.)

It gives one-click access to clearing the clipboard, recent documents, and the IE cache, as well as providing a forced restart or shutdown, and ejecting CD. I disabled automatic optimization, so I notice no effect whatsoever on the performance of my computers UNLESS I manually choose to execute an action. Yes, I realize that there are other ways to accomplish those things using Windows or third-party software, but this provides a convenient one-stop way for me to do so. Would this software be useful for everyone? Of course not. Is it worthless for everyone? Of course not. Evaluate it based upon how YOU use your own computer.

A complete waste of time and effort ..I am not interested in tweeking to get a couple of MB of ram freed!! why you dont just leave the system alone and just give away some useful programs for the majority of normal users ..these kind of tweek and registery programs do more damage than repair...Thats my opinion anyway.

Thumbs down for me!

Here is why: I have tried this one in the past (on my XP machine) and found it buggy so it was uninstalled!

Tried it again today (on my Vista machine) and saw no real novelty to it (still buggy) so it got uninstalled again.

I am of the opinion that you don't really need these kinds of programs in normal use.

The better solution if you find yourself pinched for RAM is that you buy additional memory modules (if you can squeeze them in the system as some pre-built computer systems max real quickly in available slots and RAM limits).

The only time I found these kind of RAM optimizers useful is after a long time working with browsers (I often browse for research on answering questions and in those times, I can have 3 browsers running 10 tabs each).

Almost all browsers eat more RAM and don't release it as time goes by so in these cases, I use the RAM optimizer built into Glary Utilities (both the free version and the paid one have it).

If you do not have the full paid version given here a while ago (or lost it), you can find the free version here: Glary Utilities Free

@Ashraf: It is normal that it takes a lot of computer resources while tweaking/cleaning as it goes looking everywhere for unreleased RAM (It does use much for about 60 seconds tops on my system).

I use Advanced System Care Free, which has some thing like this included. Firefox has memory leaks and I only use it when on the net for a long time. With Superfetch, Vista and Windows 7 use your memory more effectively than any previous Windows. If Vista and 7 seem like memory hogs, read up on what is Superfetch and you will know why. Like others have said before me, if you computer is sluggish, try adding ram. These types of programs are pretty useless on Vista and 7.

The following comment is mostly copied from another comment I've made on http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/mem-optimizer-3/

Memory optimizers, much like registry cleaners, don’t work. Period.

It’s impossible for these applications to be smart enough to really know how to handle data properly. Only the operating system and the programs holding the memory can safely make changes. If you’re certain neither is doing it’s job, here’s a few fixes:

1) If you feel there’s a memory leak, stop using the particular function of the program causing the leak. Do some experimentation to figure out what’s the cause.

2) If you can’t fix the leak, try an alternative program. Also, make sure your programs are updated and your OS isn’t missing anything critical.

3) If you’re computer’s freakishly slow, hit ctrl alt delete, open up the task manager, click the Performance tab and check how full the ram is (Bottom graph). If it’s maxed out, buy some more. Nothing else, NOTHING! ELSE! will help you. If it’s not, stop some other programs. Memory isn’t your problem at all.

4) If your computer became slow after a recent change (Especially going from xp to vista or vista to win7), undo the change. Your computer simply can’t handle it. It’s probably best to get a new computer, especially if you’re on a single core machine (Hold the windows key and press R, type msinfo32 and use common sense).

5) If you’re unsure about your situation, ask an expert. There is no “one size fits all” solution, ever. Try taking your PC to Geek Squad or asking on http://www.techsupportforum.com/ if you want some advice.

6) Read the first sentence again.

7) read 6.

8) read 7.

9) Seriously, read the first sentence again. Over, and over, and over until it sinks in. I can’t stress enough how horrible registry cleaners and memory optimizers are (however, disk defragmenters are good, don’t get the two mixed up). It’s like asking a toddler to preform brain surgery while you’re awake. You’d have to be an idiot to believe this is a good thing.

Pointless. As many have pointed out, you're much better off just spending a few dollars to buy more ram (it's so cheap these days!).

Vista and Windows 7 are well-optimized to use RAM to it's maximum efficiency already, so using this probably hurts you. If you're running XP, you can buy more RAM than you need for under $40.

RAM freeing utilities are snake oil. Go ahead and pass on this one.

Hi all!!

If you conduct a TEST on a laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit with 3GB or 4GB of RAM and an Intel T8300 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo processor....bla bla....memory optimization tools such as this one never work and are totally useless.

As simple as that!! LOL!

On the other hand, if you use a PC with a limited quantity of RAM and an old CPU, there are some memory optimization tools out there that are pretty effective.


My favourite one is definetely FreeRAM XP Pro 1.52:

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Memory-Tweak/FreeRAM-XP-Pro.shtml


I've been using this tool for many years and I have to admit that, unlike this GAOTD, it does what it claims at least in old PC such as mine.

Alternatively I suggest you trying this unknown but in my humble view pretty effective application called "MZ RAM BOOSTER" that allows you to improve the performance of your computer by auto-recovering RAM and fine tuning some system settings using minimal resources and almost no CPU time.


FULL REVIEW here:

http://www.softpedia.com/reviews/windows/Mz-Ram-Booster-Review-45098.shtml


The Good

Mz RAM Booster is a free application intended for optimizing your system's performance. The options available lead to an increased speed of the computer and will not affect its stability in any way.

The Recommended Settings button will greatly ease the work of newbies as the software will scan the system for resources and provide the optimum configuration for your computer.

The Bad

Some of the parts in the Help file should have been explained more extensively as not all the users are familiar with some of the terms.

The Truth

The application is free and does a pretty good job. System stability will not be affected and you can try and test it for as long as you want.


EDITOR'S RATINGS:


User Interface: EXCELLENT
Features: VERY GOOD
Ease of use: EXCELLENT
Pricing/Value: EXCELLENT
Overall: EXCELLENT


Please note that, if you want to run this program, you must have .NET FRAMEWORK 2.0 installed in your PC


Finally, if you want to increase your COMPUTER performance dramatically in each aspect of the HARDWARE (Cpu Tweaks, HDD Tweaks, Memory Tweaks, Graphic Card Tweak, CD/DVD Tweaks, Modem Tweaks, Internet Tweaks, Windows Tweaks, Boot Files Optimization, Registry Optimization etc...) take a peep at this tool that scans your hardware (CPU, RAM, Graphic Card, Hard Disk, CD/DVD, Modem ect.) with a specially designed algorithm applying the best values for over 50 powerful tweaks!


http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/AutoMz-Ultimate-Tweaker.shtml



And don't forget that, to optimize your RAM and CPU usage and boost your PC’s speed in one go, you can still grab for free the award-winning and top rated PC performance enhancer SPEEDUPMYPC 2009.

Just follow the instructions set out in the link below to receive your FREE GENUINE SERIAL NUMBER in order to activate your full version of SpeedUpMyPC 2009:

http://mytechquest.com/windows/download-free-serial-key-for-full-version-speedupmypc-2009/



Enjoy!!


Cheers fron Italy!

For the final word in "Memory cleaners" and "Optimizers" go here:
http://www.pcwintech.com/node/145 (It's FREE)

This free program is called "Cleanmem"
You install it and forget it.

From their site:

"How Cleanmem Works
Ok for once and for all I am going to explain in detail how Cleanmem works, why it works and how it can & can not make a difference in your system.

Every now and then as I go across the net I find forums and pages talking about Cleanmem, and to be honest I am truly surprised to see the people throwing fits about the program being a memory cleaner and how if it is a memory cleaner it must not work! Yet they never even try it. Then when I come across pages like on www.raymond.cc who actually took the time to try it and test it makes me feel like my work is appreciated by my fellow geeks & techs as he took the time to try it, he didn't judge before hand. Yet reading comments on his site you will find people shocked it works and others saying it cant work and they didn't try it.

So now lets start with how Cleanmem works. 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, I loaded of my Age Of Conan game, it was using about 600mb of memory, when I run my Cleanmem the memory only lowers to about 500mb, and the game doesn't miss a hit, why? because that 500mb of memory was currently being used and windows didn't touch it, only the memory left over was removed, which isn't going to touch the games performance since the memory wasn't in use. This is also why the page file doesn't grow, cause no memory is being moved away from the process.

Will you see performance increase? Yes if a lot of your memory is being eaten up, plus keeping the processes cleaner adds a small performance increase when dealing with memory. But if you have a butt load of memory like I do you wont see amazing increases in performance, but if your running low on memory it makes a big difference.

If you have a lot of memory why use Cleanmem? Well I use it cause I like my system running tight and clean. Just because my system has a lot of memory doesn't mean I want things sucking it all up if it isn't even using it. That's why I made Cleanmem sort of a set it and forget it. I never need to worry about a program having memory leaks or not cleaning up after itself.

So what I did with Cleanmem was take a built in Windows API and made it easy and automatic to keep no longer used memory free. The program is free, the setup is easy and life is good. So if for some reason you don't want to use Cleanmem, that's fine. I'm not trying to push a free program on people, I could care less if someone doesn't want to use it. But for those of you that do use it I'm glad you find it useful and I'm here if you have any questions or needs.

A quick note on the API call itself. This is the same API used by Microsoft in its empty.exe in the Windows 2003 Resource kit. This is also the same api that all .Net programs use by default when you minimize them and their memory lowers. So now instead of being just for .Net, Cleanmem lets you use it on all your programs.

I hope this answers all questions and helps people understand once and for all about Cleanmem.

Take care!
Shane"

A software solution to a hardware problem that at $19.95 is costlier than RAM itself. It didn't work last time and nothing in the change log suggests an improvement now. Other than kudos to the developer for not -- as so many others do when offering products on here -- hyping the product's title with words like 'Pro' or 'Advanced', this app makes no sense free, or paid-for.

RAM gets "fragmented" every time data is stored. Are you going to run this software every time you close a program or watch a you tube video or visit a website? How much RAM does this software use making it unavailable to other programs? Can this thing "defragment" the RAM it is using? RAM access speed is 800MHz or faster. CPU speeds are greater than that. "Defragmenting" RAM it is not going to make anything happen faster. Defragmenting is not going to "increasing the efficiency of your CPU", whatever that means.
Like someone else said. If you want system performance info use the task manager. It's on ALL Windows computers.

This may work well but not with ME!! I generally find it`s easier to reboot , sometimes the impending freeze is "caught " by Anti-Crash, but more often than not , I have to force a reboot followed by a disc-scan.

I installed it in last give away and still using it and seriously its working very well.Yes that's also true that sometimes you do got ram increase but it that's also true that it helps you a lot when you need to free memory. when you turn off any software or program aft that just run this program and it will bring instant memory free up for your system that i always do b'coz sometimes program keep running in the background but Tweak Ram solves that.

If you running Firefox with to many addons then some time it do ate up to much memory at that time this program works like a charm. it work for any software.

Thanks Again GAOTD for the give away.

#7, moonseal, you don't need to install garbage, you already have performance-monitoring tools. Windows Task Manager will provide you with lots of information (check the View and Options menus per tab), you can sort on columns, etc. The Reliability and Performance Monitor is very handy, and provides information which is difficult to obtain elsewhere. The DirectX Diagnostic Tool, DXDiag, can provide general information about your graphics hardware and drivers. Microsoft Sysinternals Process Explorer has endless features and can provide a wealth of information. Right-click the .zip file, select Properties, and Unblock before extracting. Sysinternals utilities are standalone, so create shortcuts if desired. AnVir can provide a lot of information and has handy tray icons and tooltips. Of course, performance monitors consume some resources themselves. Go to your video card/chip manufacturer's website and check for newer drivers.

On a modern OS you don't want free RAM. Free RAM is wasted performance.

It's when the computer is allowed to USE the available RAM you get increased speed. All RAM management "enhancers" actually prevent the computer from allocating memory, which leads to LESS performance.

THE BEST RAM DEFRAGMENTER AND CLEANER EVER!

I tested it with a raster-tunnel microscope: every cell was afterwards really dust free and cleaned up: exactly just "0" or "1" was left in every single cell. I+m deeply impressed!
(nevertheless: congratulations to Ashraf for his well done testing and rating)

A lot of my thumbs up for this!!!

Personally, these types of software are always no good. This piece in particular does more damage to your system than good. It is a complete waste of time downloading and installing the software, and as #6 said, it does not uninstall completely.

Overall, this software is useless and pointless, and will do more damage than good!

Not so good. Downloaded! Installed! Everything good - how happy I was. Now my personal computer does not start anymore and comes up with random error messages? What is this madness? Got rid of the program, reinstalled my Win 95. Now I'm going to try again, because I'm a fighter. But that really must not happen again. regret

I have tried this programme before. A complete waste of time it actually used more resources than it saved and has a tendency on computers with little ram on actually making them unusable during the time it is "freeing up" ram. So if it doesn't work on the computers that could use a bit of software that could actually do with this then you can guess it is no good on computers that don't. If you need more ram then buy more ram as I have never seen one of these type of programmes that worked to any degree.

Installed on Vista/64 bit Home premium. I wanted a program to track CPU and memory usage since I had a rogue graphics chip driver. Everything works fine, except that the program couldn't detect my BIOS. Freed up 20 MB of memory initially. I'm curious to see if this program delays startup dreadfully or bogs down the CPU in any way.

Did not uninstall all that it installed.
reginfo at [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Elcor Software\TweakRAM]
and other places near by. did not get removed when I uninstalled it.

Hi, I just tried it on xp 32bit. i have 4gb of memory. Installed fine. when cleaning it says:
memory before cleaning: 2590mb. free
memory after cleaning: 2589mb. free

So I actually lost 1mb. by cleaning.
Later I ran it again and also lost 1mb.

so I think" don't wast any time on this one".
Uninstalling it now.

Another tweak RAM. If you are feeling your computer is slowing down, just add a stick of RAM or buy a new one with higher memory and that will solve everything. Thumbs DOWN.

The Good

* Has some nice extra 'tools'.

The Bad
* Doesn't work very well.
* Uses up quite a bit of computer resources during the actual RAM tweaking/cleaning process.
* Premium Booster website is opened up (without your consent) during installation.

Free Alternatives
CleanMem
AnVir Task Manager
