    Ram utilities are virtually useless - in fact, counterproductive - in XP. The OS does a better job of managing memory on its own than any available 3rd party utilities.

    Cacheman 5.5 is good, it will allow you to increase the icon cache, read-ahead cache for the harddrive, and also has a hot key or tray icon that instantly frees up memory by clearing unused dlls left in memory.

    Its downloadable from utilities on xp-erience mainpage. :D

    the best ram free up program you can possibly use in xp is xp...do not take away xp's ability to manage ram...as allan said, that's counter productive

    From what I have seen and read, dealer and allan are right. XP does a better job of handling memory for itself.
