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
 
thanks. I had used alt-ctrl-del but did not use google to know hat services i am terminating. great.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
