Video Editing : Maximizing RAM Usage

percy

Hi. I am editing a video and I like to maximize my Ram usage for video only. How can I turn-off running services that is not needed for video editing so that I can use the extra Ram for the video editing? I had tried to terminate NIS2006 for example in my task bar but it would not terminate. What resources can I terminate? Is their a software that I can use for this purpose? Any advise is appreciated. Thanks.

ctl alt del. Processes tab.
I have 45 running right now and could kill at least 20 of them.
Click the memory tab and they will sort by amount of ram. Kill the big ones.
Examples:
ieplorer 2x at 48 mb each
eudora at 37mb
msmsgs 8 mb
screen saver at 8 mb
avg antivirus 7mb
ati multimedia 5 mb
printer monitor 3mb
incd 4mb
etc

If you don't recognize a file name google it.

If you kill the wrong thing don't worry. You will reboot.

Hint don't kill explorer.exe
