Editors' reviewWith one click you can free up RAM, but that's all this application offers. You'll find a busy but understandable interface with a slider to indicate the amount being used and a single process button to free up RAM. The program has a graphic and numeric display of RAM and virtual memory, and you can view and print reports of memory status before and after cleanup. Dr. Salman's MemZilla warns the user if the specified amount of memory to be freed is too much for the current system status. You're limited to a seven-day trial with this software. Though its ability to quickly free memory is enticing for any user, other utilities offer this single feature for free or combine it with other system optimizers.
MemZilla is a Memory Manager and Optimization program that increases your system performance by freeing more memory for your applications. Normally when you perform tasks on your computer such as opening a document, viewing pictures or movies or browsing the internet, your computers physical memory called RAM is used, when you close your favorite programs some but not all of the memory used by the program is released back to the system to be used for launching other programs, this results in your computer relying on virtual memory or hard disc space used to simulate RAM, which is slower to read and write compared to Physical RAM memory, thus slowing down your computer. MemZilla works by freeing up this wasted RAM memory when you close your apps to be released fully so they can be used to launch your favorite apps faster and with less reliance on virtual memory.
What's new in this version:
