I was wondering what are some good ram optimizers. I know there are a bunch out there, but what are some of your personal favorites, that do a good job, and have lots of options.

XP is very good at memory management.

What he said ^^
Most memory "optimizers" just free up your RAM by dumping the contents into the pagefile, and since hard disk access is much slower than accessing RAM, it only leads to performance degradation in the long run.

They aren't much use really, with todays systems having quite a bit more memory then they used to. And XP is good at sorting memory out, unlike windows 98 etc which at best was rubbish!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
