Ram Decreases the Longer The Computer is used
« on: May 26, 2012, 09:40:07 AM »
Howdy
and yes shane I use cleanmem!
My question is why does the available ram decrease the longer I use the computer?
As in I had 315megs available an hour ago and now I have 300-is it because the more programs I run cause this??Usually happens when I am online.
Thanks
Rod

Besides exe's there are also loaded dll and ocx files that take memory. The more apps you have running the more resources need.

Microsoft gave no way to clean the memory of loaded dll's or ocx files. Only way to free them is to close the program that is using them. :wink:

Thaks for the info-I thought XP was supposed to manage ram better?But I guess that is why you made cleanmem.
I use your program a lot mostly when using firefox-made a mistake yesturday-online not using cleanmem with firefox and opened clamwin portable to do an update,ram dropped to 1 so I had to enable cleanmem fast! Saved my butt!!!

PS how is the eruntgui thing going?You said you were going to make one.

Thanks Shane

OK so you are not going to make one?In a post you said you would make one using erunt
with lots of renaming options,you scrapped that?

That was just an idea. But I found a lot of info and a lot of things where lacking that I wanted to add. So I made my own. Mine backups more than erunt does. Erunt can only backup profiles that are currently loaded. Mine backs them all up.
