This is a program called "FreeRAM XP Pro".. It finds RAM on your computer thats not being used and puts it towards computer speed, therefore making your computer actually perform faster. ALSO, ever wonder why your suddenly missing a couple MB's of space? Well thats because RAM is being used and takes up space, this program actually saves you space, over 2 gig would be used for nothing if I didn't have this program, its still saving me more and more. A must download!

Its fairly easy to use, just do a quick "autofree" when you see that the green bar is a little less then half.. Or whenever you feel like your computer is being bogged down!

its a little green bar when it shows up in the system tray icon.. 35% is somewhat average, it helps though trust me, somewhere it says how much space it has saved you so far, either when its starting or somewhere on the window..

don't ya'll realise that this program itself uses ram. most newer OSs have good ram control ie XP, OSX, Linux etc. this program would only be useful on an older os like 98 or ME. i've used these types of programs before and their pretty much the equilivent of snake oil, more or less just a placebo effect. just my .02

Sorry, I use Cacheman to free up my memory. It also optimizes Windows so that I load maps twice as fast as my friends in all my games.

free ram xp doesn't have spyware, I'm not a computer-nerd and I do have a life so I don't get off on books about computers..
