Can anyone recommend a good program that will free up ram for Xp Pro.
Clearmem.. in the downloads section
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.
I've never found one necessary in xp.
disable unnecessary services
frees up a lil ram i think
i'd suggest, if you need it, MemTurbo.
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.
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.
