Optimize And Free-Up System Memory With Extra RAM [Windows]

System slowness is a normally faced issue for most PC users, often caused by lesser amount of system memory. RAM optimization applications, while not adding anything to physical memory, tend to give a speed boost by cleaning up junk from RAM, hence making its usage more efficient.

Extra RAM is a lightweight application that runs in the background and keeps your RAM clean and smooth. Once installed, the application will continue to monitor your PC RAM, and optimize it silently as and when needed. It has a simple interface and shows information about free and available memory.


You can set the amount of RAM to free, let the program auto-start with Windows, or minimize it to system tray where it will continue to monitor. It works with Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.

    Do any of these so called memory optimizers really work?

      To be honest, I really don't use memory optimizers. But if I am on a very low spec computer, instead of waiting for Windows to optimize it, I will use 3rd party tools for quicker optimization.

      Basically some memory optimizers, such as, Memory Cleaner (mentioned at the end of the post) use Windows's own API which is perfectly safe to use. =)

    Fair enough, I've tried a number of these and never had good enough results to keep using them but I see your point.

    This thing nearly trashed my system. Continued to load up even after uninstalling.
