    FreeRAM is a program that frees up ram manually or automatically. It shows current memory status , memory load and CPU usage graphically.
    Best of all, it is completely free!

    Advantages are:
    • Applications load much faster
    • Less blue screens
    • Less lock-ups
    • Allows your computer to run longer
    • System cache tuning!

    Features:
    - Frees up RAM manually or automatically
    - Easily free specified amount of RAM with shortcut
    - Easily free predefined amount of RAM (5%, 10%, 20% ... 80%)
    - Automatically or manually tunes system file cache
    - Memory and CPU usage graph
    - Uses system tray
    - Skin support
    - Uses system tray

    Download and Enjoy guys :)

    well wouldn't you get less performance if it freed up your ram and prevented it from being used to the full potential?

    These programs are ment to be used with low-memory computers, meaning bellow 512 ram.
    And what they do is unload stuff that WERE beeing used from the memory so what you ARE currently running has more free memory to use.

    I heard these work the best when used in conjunction with Windows 9X/ME. Windows XP does have something of the nature already in effect but a program like this plays very very little into it.

    What you hear is because normally ever since Windows XP most users had more than 256MBs while in Windows 9x/ME most if not all had up to 128MBs...

    Like i said these programs are VERY usefull even with computers up to 512MBs of Ram.
    And in 1995 most people had 16 and 32MBs, in 1998 most had 64-128MBs and now many have 256-512MBs so i would say that these programs can be used by many people.
