Editors' Review

+
No matter how many times you upgrade, you always need more memory. This freeware utility is a handy tool to manage memory usage and keep your PC from crashing. Free Ram Optimizer XP maintains a level of free RAM that you determine. The program interface is very straightforward, with tabs to control optimization options (whether automatic or manual, and free memory desired) and start-up options. The small tray icon shows you the level of free memory and lets you access the program main page with one click. Overall, this is a fairly compact, useful program that should help you run a PC more efficiently in between memory upgrades.

"This would be good for a selected few people"

May 03, 2012  |  By Slicky3

 |  Version: Free Ram Optimizer XP 1.0

Pros

It does work most of the time.

Cons

It uses memory and eats up user time.

Summary

Go ahead and get this if you have a WHOLE lot of memory to start out with and run a WHOLE lot of programs. I took it off my computer because it cause more problems then it was worth.

"It is what it is"

January 05, 2011  |  By Merranvo

 |  Version: Free Ram Optimizer XP 1.0

Pros

Small Footprint, simple without additional "silliness"

Cons

Appears to have a 2048MB (2GB) hardcoded RAM limit.

Summary

Memory Optimizers do exactly what they were meant to do, free up ram by forcing DLLs or other extensions out... though I would believe their implementation is rather flawed. Rather than directly modifying ram addresses, they appear to simply "grab" as much memory as possible thus forcing windows to "deal with the problem".

These tools are not to increase speed, but increase stability for programs with ever increasing memory footprints... offering more benefits to those who turn off the pagefile. But again, it's for people who TRULY FILL their memory up...

"All ram optimizers are jokes"

December 15, 2009  |  By calebstein

 |  Version: Free Ram Optimizer XP 1.0

Pros

absolutely none

Cons

wastes HD space
probably frees up ram by paging infrequently used applications

Summary

When an application is paged, it is removed from the ram and placed in the pagefile. While this can free up ram, it also slows the applications that are paged because they need to be loaded into the memory again, and therefore not actually clearing ram. While this program might temporarily clear ram, the effect will be undone when you try to access a paged application. I am not saying that that is what this program does, I am saying that that is what most ram optimizers do, and I don't like to use them for that reason.
