The problem with memory optimizers is that they usually have no effect, or actually decrease performance.
These memory optimizers force Windows to page data in RAM to your hard disk. This means when you access one of the programs that you’ve just forced parts of it to the HD, instead of a quick RAM call, it needs to load it off the HD again. Since your drive is considerably slower than your RAM, this is extremely inefficient.
There is no need to have free RAM sitting around. It’s just false economy. Windows will page things out itself if it needs to, but it will wait until it’s necessary in order to improve performance.
You can do a search for Memory Optimizer Myth, or Memory Optimizer Hoax and find out more than you probably ever wanted to know about these snake oil applications.
