CleanMem a small utility that in the background without user intervention to optimize RAM on your computer, by the release of the reserved but unused space from different programs. Unlike most of the program of similar purpose, CleanMem does not unload the contents of RAM to the hard drive, and simply release the reserved but not used by a place that allows you to release the memory and performance is not reduced.
How it works: using the Windows Task Scheduler runs every 30 minutes, cleans the RAM and stops and all this without any user interaction. It supports both 32 and 64 bit OS.
The people who will notice the biggest performance increase are ones who dont have a lot of memory installed. Portable CleanMem works by calling a Windows API. Portable CleanMem doesnt change the working set of a processes. It simply asks Windows to do all the work. So Windows does the trimming, the moving and manages everything.
This is why there is never any crashes of programs and any performance hit to the system. To put it short Portable CleanMem doesnt work against the Windows memory manager, it works with it.
The reason is when your system starts getting low on memory Windows will start to move memory to the page file. The page file is ran off your hard drive. The hard drive is the bottle neck of performance on a system.
So the slower the drive the slower the system goes as it tries to work with the page file. When you use CleanMem you help keep the system from using up all its memory. In turn Windows doesnt push anything to the page file, and we avoid the huge slow down from page file usage.
