RAMBooster

Download.com Staff Nov 7, 2008

RAMBooster claims to help PC performance by freeing up system RAM that's been allocated to inactive programs or services. Almost any computer system can benefit from additional RAM, but not all computer system owners know how (or can afford) to install more memory. RAMBooster is small, effective, and best of all, free. Installation is quick, and setup is easy.

Use program defaults, or modify through the Preferences screen of the Edit menu how much RAM you'd like it to free up and at which point of resource consumption. RAMBooster will keep track of RAM usage and scrub your RAM free of flotsam left behind by closed windows and background programs. The tray icon will be red and black if your memory is fine, escalating to yellow as free memory falls. Rest your mouse pointer on the icon to see exactly how much free RAM you have. You can perform a manual RAM cleaning by right-clicking the icon in the system tray and selecting Run Now.

Multitaskers who experience bottlenecks in performance due to data saturation of their system's RAM will benefit the most from RAMBooster.

Developer's Description

RAMBooster monitors the amount of RAM your system is using and allows you to free it up. This will let your PC run smoother and faster, and you won't have to reboot as often. It will monitor the memory at all times, and if the amount of free RAM gets too low, it will automatically boost it for you, finding unused RAM and returning it to the free pool. RAMBooster will also monitor your CPU usage. Version 2.0 includes replaced CPU-infotext with a gauge. RB now always minimizes to the tray instead of taskbar or tray. The GUI looks almost like the old GUI, to make things easier for those who have used RAMBooster for years. Supports RAM up to 9999 MB instead of previous 99. Help-file problems fixed. Fixed conflicts with CPU-usage meter. Also some dial-up system caused to CPU-reading to freeze to 0%. This part has also been rewritten. Allows only one instance of the program. Lots of code optimization, invisible to users. It is bettter, faster, and more reliable now.
