    You need to be careful with some of the system utilities - they can cause more harm than good, hense Norton System Utilities .. and Ram Free programs mess with your registry ..

    lechtard,
    you say
    These programs will not mess your system up if you read the manual first and if there a forum for the program you could always go there for there and ask for ADVICE /HELP

    These programs are made to help you not to damage you system.

    actually both of these two posts are correct.

    as GR@PH;<'S says, most utilities are meant to help your system, and will not harm your box...BUT you need to understand what the program is doing...read the manual so to speak...make sure you want the program to do what it's intended to do.

    example, as lechtard posted, ram releasing utilities will slow xp down, no matter how you use the program

    GR@PH;<'S ...you'll get a kick out of the great free programs
    thread
    way back when I started that thread, adaware was on the first post.

    now that thread has hundreds of incredible free utilities...ad free was a must for the program to be posted.
