    running clearmem.exe three times in a row actually frees so much physical ram...

    i have 256mb after running it over 3 times it frees up to 220 mb or physical ram...is dis bad or good?

    I would think thats BAD

    Here's What You Need to Use Windows XP Professional
    128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)

    So if what you say is true you are running XP with 36megs of RAM after you've freed the RAM , plus what ever has been allocated to your pagefile. I'm surprised to don't suffer performance issues after you've freed the RAM - basic services must require more than 36megs to run.

    The RAM the system needs is populated straight away by XP = no harm, when you free RAM you just clearing old processes out.


    The more you free the better :)

    There are programs like memturbo that do this also , but they themselves take 4MB Ram to run .. LOL

    Clearmem is the best.

    I run Clearmem every few days or when my PC has been up for a few weeks . i do it each day, like a fresh reboot :)
