Editors' Review

+
Looking to free up some RAM on your running system? Then FreeRAM XP Pro is the program for you. Truly freeware, it gives you complete access to all its features at no cost. You can either have the program automatically optimize your system, or you can specify how much memory you'd like to free up. Advanced tray support, automatic memory monitoring and optimization, system-metric monitors, and real-time memory information are just a few of the features that make this program attractive and useful. You also can apply different sounds to different actions. It's doubtful you'll find a memory optimizer easier to use than FreeRAM XP, making it a smart pick for anyone who's ever been frustrated by a poky PC.

"Works very well (XP)"

December 27, 2008  |  By diddiot

 |  Version: FreeRAM XP Pro 1.5

Pros

Small memory use. Easy to install. Great for selling RAM to customers who arent sure whether they need it or not.

Cons

Doesnt display percentage properly for large amounts of RAM

Summary

I put this on every box i build to show customers how their memory usage is. Need to update to display % correctly above 2Gb. Optimise function is quick and stable. Good indicator of something amiss in your OS as you soon remember they startup state of the system and can see extra memory use which could indicate a bug. And its free!

"Works great"

January 09, 2006  |  By joe_vandal

 |  Version: FreeRAM XP Pro 1.5

Pros

My work computer is so sluggish when I first boot it up. One click from this little utility and suddenly I have twice the available RAM. Also, I love the flexibility. You can set a timer to free your RAM every few minutes or so. One of the best utilities I have ever downloaded.

Cons

No cons

"Does a much better job at managing RAM than Windows"

January 08, 2006  |  By EngDrewman

 |  Version: FreeRAM XP Pro 1.5

Pros

This program does a very good job at balancing RAM with the pagefile/swapfile. It has both a ton of settings for advanced users like me while being simple enough with expanations about each button activated by hovering over it that a novice computer user could also use it.

Cons

It occasionaly misjudges what would optimize the computer's performance. For example, once I was using an large application, and it put the whole thing in the pagefile, which slowed it down considerably for a couple minutes. But this error is not an everyday occurance and I defintely recommend this download for everyone, regardless of your skill or how much ram is installed in your pc.

"Wste of time for most"

January 06, 2006  |  By i.p.standing

 |  Version: FreeRAM XP Pro 1.5

Cons

If all you want is something that's going to free up some of your ram, look for a program called Ram Idle. It's simple to use, it's effective, it's free.

"Excellent utility for any IT professional"

January 05, 2006  |  By railwaymodeler

 |  Version: FreeRAM XP Pro 1.5

Pros

Small system tray readout of available RAM. Very quick in ajusting readout. Helped me find what was hogging RAM in a customer machine, saved me about 2 hours of work right there! People, if you have Winrar, you should have no trouble installing this!

Oh, and it fits on a floppy when compressed, this is handy for working on some old non-usb machines I still see.
