Cleanmem errors
« on: June 14, 2009, 03:46:05 PM »
I just downloaded and installed this on my Windows XP (for home) SP2 laptop.

During the install I got a file association error with the "bat" files.

So I went to Start | Run | cmd
navigated to cleanmem directory
edited Install_32bit_OS.bat
inserted "pause" just before "exit"
and ran it from the command window.

I got the following errors...

ERROR: Invalid Argument/Option - '/f'
Type SCHTASKS /CREATE /? for usage

ERROR: Invalid Argument/Option - '/ri'
Type SCHTASKS /CHANGE /? for usage

What are the corrected options?
Thanks!

those are for xp pro and vista, home doesn't have the schtasks.exe. But don't worry the job is copied to the scheduled task folder. Open the task scheduler and cleanmem should be in there.

This is the command that puts it there for ya
copy "Clean System Memory 32bit.job" "%systemroot%\tasks\Clean System Memory.job" /y

CleanMem Uninstall
« Reply #2 on: July 15, 2009, 07:44:00 PM »
I'm sorry but I'm as ungeek as there is. I let cleanmem install itself, not varying the automatic options. Now, as I click on cleanmem.exe I get nothing. Nothing opens, nothing happens. Right click then 'Open' doesn't do diddly either.

So I clicked uninstall. Nothing. I went to Control Panel and it won't uninstall there either.

Please, I'm unemployed and broke and I can't afford to spend $75 to hire a techie to clean it off my hard drive. It's obviously software beyond my capacity to use and ever since I installled it, my Windows XP OS has been freezing up.

How may I uninstall this program?

cleanmem doesn't have a

cleanmem doesn't have a window, it runs then closes it is a set it and forget it program. Read the page on it more and it explains all that. It is unlikely cleanmem is causing the lock ups. Did you download the setup or the zip file? if you downloaded the setup file just go to add remove programs and uninstall it, if you downloaded the zip file simply delete cleanmem.exe.

I would test your memory if you are getting lock ups, Microsoft has a free memory tester http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp

One of the most common reasons of lock ups (one of many reasons as well) is bad memory, so to save your self a tech fee you can test the memory your self :-)

Thats it :-)

Uninstall CleanMem (or anything else)

Kevin,

Shane is right about CleanMem likely not being the cause of your system instability.  CleanMem only uses commands already built into Windows.  

If you are having trouble uninstalling CleanMem (or any other program for that matter) then give www.revouninstaller.com/">Revo Uninstaller a shot.  Be sure to check out it's alternative "Hunt Mode" option too.

In addition to testing your memory you should look at running system restore.  If you ran the installer for CleanMem then Windows should have made a restore point prior to the installation.  You can "roll back" your system to the state just prior to the installation which should fix any system errors that occured during *or* after the installation, whether related to CleanMem or not.

Let us know how it goes or if you continue to have issues.
