Default Advanced SystemCare "Smart RAM"

I used to use Advanced System Care but I don't use it anymore because I found individual programs that work better (thanks Gizmo). However, there is a memory utility included that you cannot download separately as far as I can tell called "Smart RAM". Smart RAM seems to work well and when I run it the size of the running applications shrink considerably. Does anyone have experience with this tool, and if so, is it better then the Gizmo recommended "Clean Mem"? Thanks.

I used to use memory optimizers such a CleanMem and to be honest I didn't notice any substantial improvement. It think it made me feel better that I was using it.

With that said CleanMem is a different kind of memory optimizer that uses the windows task scheduler to run every 30 minutes and it only takes a few seconds to optimize the memory. Depending on how much Ram you have installed it may improve your system with out doing any harm.

Advanced System Care is an IObit product. We all know about past issues with IObit, and also that their site now has unsatisfactory WOT rating. So, we won't allow any discussion on ASC, or other IObit products.

However, people are free to discuss about alternate memory optimizers, or other such things. But, if discussion turns towards ASC, or IObit products, I am sorry, we will have to delete those posts. I hope anyone posting on this topic will take care of that.

No, you didn't . But, further discussion could involve it, that's why I wrote my post as an advance request .

Indeed
and its been sometime since their fall from good standing with no improvement.

However I am curios in what others think about the benefits of memory optimizers if any?

I did used to use one on my old desktop machine, and memory was freed up, but only a few megs, and i used to run it pretty lean anyway so who knows if it was really worth bothering. My laptop has three gigs of ram which is more than plenty for my needs, so i see no need to even try a memory optimiser on it.

I fell into a mind set that surely others have fallen into and that is loading up on differant utilities that promised faster speed and shields to protect us. In reality it was often a false sense of security and well being.

It kind of seems weird to me now i think about it. You want to free up memory, so run another program that uses memory. Surely a better way would be just to do a bit of research and shut down some non essential services, once you know which services can be safely shut down. I suppose when i was a computer noob i was easy prey for software vendors, a few of whom offer only snake-oil
