    "Unstable with Windows XP"

    November 7, 2003  |   By rmblue2

    Summary

    Although the system is unique, it becomes unstable after a month or two of use.I purchased this software and ran it for a couple of month's, and started having system crashes, and became more frequent. As theses crashes would happen I could see the FreeMem Pro icon in the tray pop out red and the indicater showed it used a whole 768mb of ram, and then it would crash. Fortunatly the Windows Xp and my system will automatically re-boot itself after a crash.
    After re-boot, a window would pop up stating windows received a fatal error, and would like me to report it to Microsoft. Microsoft states although they cannot detect the exact device that caused this problem, it was most likley a pooly written software program, or a plug in.
    I removed FreeMem Pro from my system, and backed it up. I have not had a crash since removing FreeMem Pro. I wrote to 3b software support to let them know of this problem, and they never contacted me or acknowleged it whatsoever. It may work good on some operating systems, but is very unstable with Windows XP.
    I would defenatly not recommend this software for Xp users.
