Did You know?
Memory Optimizing is a way to slow up your computer..
WHY?
BECAUSE, it will free up ur RAM and move it to the swap (pagefile) file...

Probably the same experience as Dave Creek, #40.

I uninstalled a previous GAOTD version, TweakRAM 5.8 Build 10.13, to install this newer one on my Windows ME system. This was a mistake, a step backwards! At least the previous version, which displayed the wrong memory and cpu usage among other issues, would at least run "politely".

Upon launching this new version I got a never-ending series of identical windows titled "TweakRAM - application error":

"Access violation at address 70042B14. Read of address 70042B14."

They popped up about once a second, so I could not successfully click on the "close" button of the main application window to exit it. Eventually I had to terminate it (CTRL-ALT-DEL).

The same thing happened even after restarting, then stripping the system down to the minimum number of processes before launching TweakRAM 6.2.

I tried uninstalling it, rebooting, re-installing, but had the same result (again, on a minimal-loaded system, no anti-virus running or other non-essentials running).

I guess I can live without it...

THANK YOU #46 for the link. It proves something that I always suspected.

Time and time again I could find actual linked to reviews of good freeware and open source software, with actual awards even, but almost never their was a linked to review on all those sharewares that claim to have won multiple awards.

In most cases those shareware creators only show the logo and don't even provide an actual link to even the homepage of the 'award' giving site. Which means that it doesn't even work as a traffic enhancement scheme for those sites that are so free with giving out 'awards'.

This program is unneeded for 90% of the users. It isn't worth it's money. In short : over valued crap.

The Russinovich article "The Memory-Optimization Hoax" (#49) was exactly what I was looking for while I was writing my earlier comment (#19).

I would like to say though that apps like today's offering are not at all useless.

In PCs with very low memory (especially older PCs with their RAM maxed out -- so buying more RAM is not an option), having something like this running that periodically frees up RAM when the PC is idle does help.

How?

When this app forces Windows to free some memory now (which will offload the oldest-used memory blocks of oldest-used programs (or those that are minimized) to virtual memory (the pagefile)), Windows won't have to do it later when you run a large program (like a video game).

Note though, the benefit is negated if you switch to the other program and need those memory blocks back. In my experience, observing people, this seldom happens.

If you have lots of RAM (e.g., Vista with 3GB, XP with 640Mb, Win98 with 384Mb), this app won't help because the delays come from accessing the hard drive. What you want to do is to tune your file cache -- apps like Cacheman, O&O CleverCache and Russinovich's CacheSet do this for you. (I haven't heard of any "File Cache Optimization Hoax" articles going around. :))

I have a notebook with 1Gb ram and I can't add more ram because it doesn't support it.
Sometimes I test some software on virtual machines, and this kind of software helps me free some ram so VM software doesn't complain about not having enough physical memory available.

Better then getting this program is buying some ram for your computer.
You can get it as low as $23 for a 2G ram module. Plus some systems can take as much as 16G for PCs. (Some even more but their custom built)

www.pricewatch.com is a good site to check out for any of your computer needs as they provide links to the cheapest commercial produces available.

This program will only force some programs into virtual memory that will benefit you in short term for most windows users but will make your life a living help for vista users since vista pre-loads a lot to accelerate program startup. So using vista and this program is counter productive.

I found this pretty useful, now I have over 200mb!!! before I had only 64mb available mem. Thanks GAOTD, there's free alternatives but I installed this so I don't need them, So now I have enough RAM, I plan to get more, but this frees lots of mem that errors take up.

You have to experiment and learn what software is right for your computer. If you are using a new laptop you may not need a lot of software for speed. If you have an old xp desktop with limited ram you might like some utilitys like offered by gaotd. So you could say "this program slowed my computer down", so now you know that its not for your computer. I saw another person today using a new laptop and evertime she pushed a button everything was one instance. My old xp takes about 10 minutes until you are ready to connect to internet, then every thing is nice and slow. So figure out what you need, see?

#69, uninstall it. Go back to this webpage and redownload it, if you have an option download it to your desktop. Open the zip-file, open the read-me, read it, open the activation, after completeing activation a window will open with the same three, activate,read-me, set-up. open activate again, complete it. open setup and complete it, you should be done, if you like try a reboot after completeing set-up. hope that helps you in the future.

The program actually worked out more useless than the comments about it printed here.
It installed o-k but when running it it actually took 3Mb off my computer rather than freeing it up!

How people can think software can do the same job as hardware is just silly (apart from those on GAOTD who are terrified the daily freebie will disappear for not giving every pice of rubbish on here a thunmbs up)

Feel free to mark this comment with a no, It'll make GAOTD feel all warm inside along with yourselves.

I follow few tips to boost my system performance.
- Dont run too many startup programs. Generally, when installing select options such a way that it does not run in startup.
- You can kill undesired startups by using tools like Windows defender, A free spyware software from Microsoft. YOu can chose to block or remove the startup programs.
- Regularly use spyware to scan and remove suspicious programs.
- Last but not important, remove temporary internet files in your browser
- Keep enough space in your C drive.

Only advantage I see with today GOTD is that it can allocate memory for a given application as we want. It is something good to have.

IN a nutshell if it helps...
Windows XP or Vista provide all the memory management you need for running Windows itself but, they can't fully control the programs that you run in Windows.

If a running program has a memory leak, consumes too much memory, doesn't release memory when it's done with it properly etc., then less memory is available for any other software you run. TweakRAM tries to make that memory available. How much memory it can free up is determined directly by the programs you run -- If no memory is tied up because you haven't run a poorly written program, then there's nothing for it to do -- no memory to free.

As also stated briefly on TweakRAM's web site, some programs & in fact Windows itself tries to speed things up by loading program files *before* or *in case* you'll need them. When it works - great! When it doesn't, it can be a huge drain on available resources. TweakRAM tries to force these *just in case* files into the swap files Windows uses for virtual memory. Again your mileage will vary, because every time Windows is right, and you actually do need that file, you have to wait for it to be *re*-read into memory.

It is quite possible to bog your PC down by having too many processes running at the same time. Quicktime, Real Player, Office programs, AV software, everything wants to install something that runs when Windows starts, but only your AV software has a legitimate reason. TweakRAM may get some of this clutter out of your PC's memory as well.

Beyond that, though mentioned on their web site there's a debate when it comes to memory fragmentation. Getting into the success rate of your CPU cache(s)itself is beyond most users & quite a few techies.

It's better to not run programs with memory leaks, just like it's best not to run a lot of unnecessary processes and to have plenty of memory -- but maybe it's not realistic to expect everyone's PC to be perfect. If your PC isn't, then maybe TweakRAM will help -- maybe not -- and if it does help, any effects may not be earth-shattering. If you do try it, try running whatever program you use that's most challenging to your PC... I wouldn't expect a huge difference running Firefox -- you can browse the web with a cell phone or hand-held PC. If you encode video, or maybe if you're just compressing a lot of data for a backup, even a slight difference can be a noticeable improvement.

This program is around twenty dollars. If you add taxes that could potentially be twenty-five. This is of course ignoring the fact of how great GAOTD is by giving us stuff free but please read. So you spend twenty-five dollars and save, say, 50 megabytes of RAM.

But, if you were to visit your local computer shop, you could get one gigabyte of DDR2 RAM for twenty-five plus taxes. So you end up paying one or two dollars more, but you get 1000 megabytes instead of 50. I hope you take this into consideration.

Other than that, thank-you GAOTD but I am not interested. And by popular demand I WILL NOT GIVE THUMBS UP/DOWN!

As its going to run at system startup, first of all its gonna take up system resources. Then if you keep it running its gonna consume resources while running and consume a LOT of resources while cleaning. So in a word and its a System Hog- not only this one but all the so called RAM optimizers. Advanced Windows Care Free version has this module inbuilt and you can get loads of other features along with a RAM Optimizer- in case you want to try. Personally I find no use of these types of program and it never really delivers anything. Furthermore, there is a simple Registry Tweak which will automatically unload unused DLLs from system memory, ie. RAM and hence free the RAM automatically.

Thanks GAOTD for your service.

I think some here are misunderstanding what this program can do. Running a clean computer really helps in controlling how much ram is being used. Let face it, if you allow every program you install to auto run when every time the computer starts up you’re sure to tie up a lot of vital ram memory not to mention the length of time it takes away from just getting your desk top up and running during startup. In rebuilding and upgrading computers on the side, I always come across people that are ready to throw away a good computer because they notice that it’s just running too slow. I’ll start their system up knowing if not a virus, that it will most likely be not enough ram or too many programs waiting in the back ground and 80% of the time both. Sure enough after waiting like almost 4 minutes just for the desk top icons to finish loading I’m waiting like another 2 minutes for all those little icons in the lower right corner task bar of the startup menu to finish loading like 20 programs. (I’m not going to get into how much cpu speed is lost too because we’re just talking ram here.) Depending on preference the only icons that should be there on start up should be the volume, network and safely remove icons, maybe a blimp of your antivirus icon. Some have told me they let them load so they don’t have to have so many desk top icons covering their precious desk top photo or wallpaper, or they just shut down the task icons on the start menu not knowing that their ram is still holding to a lot of info that will not be released after the program is shut down still hogging memory. TweakRam like many other programs like it will not help much with all these programs running in the background, no matter how much ram you have you won’t notice much.
What I do is install 4 basic programs.
1. Spybot Search & Destroy: not only for it’s anti spyware feature but you could control what programs start up when turning on the computer. Also has other tweaking program tools.
2. Everest Home Edition: great for listing every single piece of hardware you have plus more. From bios, amount and brand of ram, drive info, cpu info, to even monitoring the speed of your network/internet connection. Also advises what upgrades you could use like if you need more ram.
3. CCleaner: use it before every shut down or getting offline to clean out all those history, temp files and junk files you don’t need that load up on startup.
4. AutoStart and Process Viewer: Like Spybot S&D, you can control what programs startup but also control or kill what loads up in the process list. Comes with a CPU and RAM monitor too.
All free programs too. Just Google them.

Now if you have 1GB of ram or more and use these 4 programs or similar to them you may never need a program like TWEAKRAM. For those that have 512 MB or less you should notice some gain in ram from 5% or less to as much as 20% or more.
For those not computer savvy it works like the Windows defragging program in the system tools menu. Every time you delete a file or program on your hard drive it leaves blank spaces that your computer might reuse or may not depending on the space it needs for the next file or program it saves to the drive, making the drive work harder and slower to retrieve all that info places different places. When you defrag, it rearranges the files closer together and recovers the emptied spaces to retrieve the files faster.
Not all info on the ram is released when shutting down a program leaving emptied spaces and info not needed. The next program opened the info is spaced apart making the ram work harder.
If you have little ram memory and you leave your computer on for long periods, (some people never shut theirs off) and use a lot of different programs during these periods, the ram will build up and hold a lot of info not needed so TweakRam would come in handy.

Now with this all said, my evaluation:
Installed easy, it did however open my browser to one of their software pages, but only once. Liked the different active monitor sensor faces you could choose from. Best to leave it on AutoFree setting if you don’t know how to free memory on the Try to Free setting.
Like every program that tries to run in the background on your task bar, unclick the setting in the configure tab. Use it when you only need to. Let it optimize then shut it. No reason to run it in the background all the time, it just defeats the purpose it’s intended to do. Using my AutoStart and process Viewer monitoring my ram before install and then after. 3 years with a 3.0MHz processor with 1 GB ram using 466.34mb (almost 50%) of ram before and 427.9 after install. I’ve gained less then 2%. But did notice my Firefox opened slightly a second faster. LOL Like I’ve stated at the beginning, keeping a clean computer with a enough ram is what it’s all about. For those who have little ram, I say take advantage of this while it’s free and try it. $20.00 for Personal License or $60.00 for the Site License is way too much when memory sticks are selling for nearly the same or less.
I rate this 3 out 5 only because it’s really not needed if you have enough ram and too pricey for what it does do. Thanks GAOTD Was a good one to try out even if I didn't need it.

#52 (Brian): PageDefrag is a nice great tool(which can really speed up your computer if the system files are defgramented) but it is completly different from today's giveaway. As you said, it defragments reghives, pagefile, hibernation file etc. unlike TweakRAM which defragments RAM.

#48 "Honestly. RAM is SOLID STATE. It doesn't NEED defragging. Defragging is only needed on HDDs with MOVING PARTS. Because the head has to move around too much if data is fragmented around the HDD."

As an "old school" computer technician, I agree with you. However, the software and marketing people have moved to adopt the term "defrag" as a method of selling their stuff to newbies. I got a rather stern reply from another developer when I sent a private email direct to them. It is quite true, RAM does not get fragmented as such but, a shuffling of addresses is done all the time through the page file. Check the Merriam-Webster archives for changes in the "acceptable use of" definitions for terms. Things change. Language is no exception.

What TweakRAM is probably doing is simply requesting as much cache disk space as it can, and then releasing it and reporting the amount of space it has "freed". Absolutely pointless, since "your favorite applications and games" already does that when it starts. The amount of memory taken to run TweakRAM probably outweighs the little memory space it claims to have "freed" - if you consider that as freed at all.

A related freeware, probably rather more useful, is PageDefrag v2.32. It will defrag not just the page file, but registry hives, event logs and other key files on boot, that become locked once Windows is running. This represents a real, non-snakeoil potential for improved performance.

"Using this RAM optimizer utility your computer will achieve superior performance. There is no need to buy additional expensive memory for your computer."

huh.. if you need these type of programs to get better performance then buying RAM is definitely going to be better. And if you don't have a fast hard-disk then this will slow your computer a lot until all the cache gets loaded back into the ram.

BUT if you really NEED a Ram optimizer then this one can be a nice option. It displays the info(free RAM, pagefile usage, cpu usage etc.) in a nice chart, frees memory quickly, displays the memory in the system tray when minimized and it is configurable. It also includes an "Application Startup Wizard" (and other tools..) which I think is a nice thing that no other RAM Cleaner has.. The only bad part about the UI is oversized controls.

And here are some freeware alternatives (not so good):
Mem-Info
Free RAM Optimizer XP
Instant Memory Cleaner 7.12 (lots of other great tools on site)
RAMPage
FreeRAM XPPro

I run Windows Vista HB with only 512M RAM for the moment; the OS has an optimization feature which allows it to specify the size of the page file (virtual memory) as necessary. This is virtual defragmentation at the system level and sort of functions quite well. I have recently (yesterday) spoken to a representative of TigerDirect who looked up my machine specs and advised which RAM was suitable. Get this, I asked about more expensive RAM but, he insisted the $19.99, minus $10 rebate, 1G sticks were all that I need for this system. Have ordered, awaiting delivery.

Well, back in the day, running a 286 when windows 3.1 came out, I recall memory (& other sorts of) optimizers being advertised - the concept is anything but new. Today more importantly, does software to optimize your PC’s memory deserve to be classified as “Snake Oil”? According to a 2004 article: “The Memory-Optimization Hoax” by Windows/IT guru Mark Russinovich, yes.

Search Microsoft’s Help & Support for memory optimization & you get 113 hits: there are articles about older versions of windows built on top of DOS (remember High Memory?), tips on setting up paging files on hard drives, and info on optimization for programmers.

So it would seem that if you have a current PC and you’ve just installed Windows XP or Vista (plus any updates), other than setting up paging files & such, you’re all set. Start adding software, & if the developers did their job handing memory inside their programs, you’ve got nothing to fear, at least as far as memory goes. But what if they didn’t? Chances are you’ve experienced mistakes or bugs in software - most everyone has.

So bottom line, if you’ve already got problems caused by miss-behaving software not handling memory properly, maybe TweakRAM will help with the symptoms, the same way a cough drop helps a soar throat. Otherwise I’d listen to Russinovich.

Honestly.

RAM is SOLID STATE. It doesn't NEED defragging. Defragging is only needed on HDDs with MOVING PARTS. Because the head has to move around too much if data is fragmented around the HDD.

i completely agree with coment #28 i looked this up and it is true ive tried lots of utilities for stuff like this and they usually end up making my computer slower than it was in the first place.... thanks gaotd and i will at least try it....

If a software’s worth can be credibly measured by the number of prestigious industry awards it has won, then everyone here should check out the website of the publisher of today’s GOTD and inspect all the “trophies” it has won.

And after that, go here:

I don't know if it is a false positive but EMSI 'a-Squared Free' detects the TweakRAM 'setup.exe' file as 'Riskware.Monitor.Win32.MessengerLog.c'. Maybe this is related to the comment that someone else made about the application linking to a 'a system booster website'.

I don't have any need for this kind of software as I have plenty of real RAM and haven't installed it but offer this observation of possible spyware to warn others of a potential hazard.

I know that this can be helpful for some people with older systems but if you have a computer that has been built after 2001 you could take the $20 you would have spent on this program (unless you get it from giveawayoftheday.com) and buy yourself up to a full gig of ram (depending on your system) I will pass this one up today but thank you GAOTD for the great software from other days.

I have used tweak RAM (version 5.8) before and it did not actually seem to boost performance usually nor free up more than a few megabytes of RAM at a time.

Another old giveaway does a great job at freeing up my RAM: AnVir Task Manager. The AnVir program lets me directly control what program I want the memory to be freed from. Tweak RAM on the other hand did not have this control.
